Hello from Kansas City. There is less then 2 months until I depart the country and head for the beautiful Melbourne Australia. Let me tell you a little bit about the people who will be my family for the 6 months while I am there.
The dad is from England and works for the Australian Government (better not get in any trouble : )) The mom is from South America and moved to Melbourne when she was a child. Her parents live 20 minutes from us. I can not wait to hear all their stories and adventures! She works for a book publishing company in the HR department. Their girls are so precious and fragile. Their 5 year old is so sweet and is such a princess as all little girls should be. February she will be attending preschool! Their new addition to the family is 1 year old and is growing up so fast. She and I will be spending lots of time together exploring. They got us a zoo pass so I will definitely be going once a week! They have two energetic dogs that romp around their large back yard. Their basement will be my "apartment" as I have my own entrance, kitchen, bedroom & bathroom. The mother of the house is taking the task of decorating and making my living space my home. I can not wait to see what she has done! I think everyday how lucky I am and how blessed I am that God has chosen this path for me and given me this learning experience at this time in my life. There are so many things to see and to learn about who I am in this next journey of my life. I am thankful for all the support of my family and friends. There will be a lot of skyping going on even if I am 15 hours ahead of everyone! I am glad to whoever reads this that you can experience a little bit of Australia through my eyes : )
With laughter and love.
