Snow Country

After visiting the nation's capital we drove down to skiing territory to meet up with another family from the kids's school. We stayed there for a week - by the last day there were 20 kids, 7 couples. It was a very fun and relaxing time. Plenty of exercise and activity for thrillseekers as well as space for some laying about relaxing in the lodge admiring the beautiful scenery of the grassy skislopes.

Hannah found it a bit overwhelming/tiring but was a total trooper as usual - I think she had a lot of fun - she didn't climb to the summit of Mt Kosiosko, the highest place on the continent above sea level but she explored the bushtracks, did some drawing, interacted with a whole bunch of kids and went swimming a couple of times. She has really made some strides - you should have seen her on the play equipment at Questacon and then at the local park near where we were staying. She was so proud of herself too the little brat. It is wonderful watching her confidence grow.

 I conned Kit into accompanying me on a walk one afternoon. We admired the beautiful colours that we saw
 and this gorgeous gold - which had lined the road down too

It was a lovely holiday. It almost felt like being overseas again because we did so many things we don't usually do on our typical January beach holidays...it cost more too!!!!!
