hey there strangers!

Our family in front of the Opera House, Sydney Australia
We are back from our travels.  It has taken a week to get over the jetlag (again) but this time it was in the nicer direction of sleeping in late and staying up till midnight (or 2am or 4am as the case may be!) In fact on our first day back we slept until 11:30am!

Since the weekend the kids have been sick with fevers, vomiting and nausea. 

But we are sort of back to normal.  We have unpacked our luggage and this has put me in spring cleaning mode.  I guess if we can each happily live out of a suitcase for a month we have way too much stuff in our house. So I already have a large pile of stuff for goodwill which I will be adding to in the coming weeks.

There are so many exciting plans in our heads of things we want to do that we were putting off until after our trip.  One of the first is to look through the photos from our trip and start blogging.  This may occur once school is back in session so don't hold your breath because that is 3 weeks away.

So first the kids need to get better, then we need to have lots of water fun outside, then we need to get everything and everyone ready for school.  Let's meet back then!

PS Note that I updated our state count on the left - we have visited 28 states now that we've vacationed in Hawaii!
