Some family time

We are now 3 weeks into semes­ter 1 at Ridley col­lege and we are start­ing to see dead­lines loom­ing as we get stuck into the books. So, we thought it would be a good oppor­tu­ni­ty to have a week­end off and go to Canberra! The main excuse being the pub­lic hol­i­day in both Canberra and Melbourne, even though it real­ly made no dif­fer­ence to us, as we don’t have class­es on Fridays or Mondays anyway!

So on Friday morn­ing Chris and I drove up to Canberra and we were able to spend the week­end with our fam­i­ly in Canberra.

Some of the high­lights of the week­end includ­ed spend­ing time with our niece, catch­ing up with both sets of par­ents, going out to the Enlighten Canberra exhi­bi­tion, attend­ing church with Chris’ par­ents, and a fam­i­ly break­fast on Monday morning.



I was par­tic­u­lar­ly excit­ed to receive this gift of a new sewing bag from my mum, who put togeth­er a replace­ment after my oth­er beau­ti­ful bag was stolen from my car in the move. Thanks mum, and Sue who also con­tributed to it! I even start­ed some more embroi­dery on the way home!

Praise God with us for:
‑A good start to the aca­d­e­m­ic year
‑The chance to spend some time with our fam­i­lies, now that we live with­in eas­i­er dri­ving dis­tance (7 hours dri­ve is bet­ter than 14!)

Please pray with us for:
‑Ongoing dili­gence with our studies
‑Relationship build­ing in this new city
‑That we would be per­sis­tent and lov­ing in our rela­tion­ships with friends in Adelaide even with the dis­tance between us.
