Spring Has Sprung Challenge

Happy first day of spring to all those down under! Oh how I have been longing for the sunshine. Give me hot, sunny summers any day over a cold winter. The only part of summer I dislike is storms, scare the heck out of me. But please don't tell my kids, I try to act like I'm brave and all that ;-)


We've lived here for just over 5 years now but I still can't believe how lucky we are to have so many nature study opportunities right here in our very own back yard, love it!


This guy was soaking up some of that gorgeous early morning sun, until Charley disturbed him.


Thank goodness he was out of reach though.

So we will be spending a great deal more time outside, especially before the sun gets too hot for us to be in. My kids always get more than enough time outside, I am not concerned about them in any way, it is actually me that I am referring to here.

I do get outside but on alot of occasions when the kids are out playing I use that for a bit of me time. Have a cuppa, do some quiet reading, catch up on blogs, prepare activities for the following day or if I'm feeling really energetic I might even do some chores ;-) Might, I did say might ;-)

So my challenge to myself, get outside with them. Enjoy the sunshine, breath in the fresh air and just be. Every day for the next 30 days I am challenging myself to this.

I will do my best to keep you updated on this one.

Happy Spring, Friends

We moved a table out into the sunshine to do our school outside in this season. Summer is too hot to be outside much unless the sprinkler is on where I live too.

It is much better for you too to get some sunlight on your skin. You will feel so much more alive. Enjoy it!

Best wishes

Enjoy being outdoors! Our summer is coming to an end here, with (slightly) cooler temperatures and just the tiniest hint of fall.

Wow! That is one huge lizard!
