Moving Overseas with Children - the Big Adventure

<a href="/blogs/sarahliebetrau/2012/06/01/moving-overseas-with-children-the-big-adventure">Moving Overseas with Children - the Big Adventure</a>

In six weeks, my family and I will be moving to Toronto, Canada from Newcastle, Australia. My husband was offered the opportunity for a transfer with his job, and after much discussion, we decided to take it. The initial contract will last for two years, with the option for us to return home after that time. The two-year time frame makes it doable for me – who knows what will happen after that?

I know my children are resilient, but I’m also prepared for some tears as their world changes. Read full article

Children and Hotel Rooms - Cancel the Champagne

<a href="/blogs/biancawordley/2011/05/23/children-and-hotel-rooms-cancel-the-champagne">Children and Hotel Rooms - Cancel the Champagne</a>

There was a time in my past when a visit to a hotel was all about fluffy robes, long luxurious baths, champagne and room service. It was decadence, lazy afternoons, sleep-ins and in-house movies.

What follows is a lesson on adhering to the warnings found in the small print of your travel documents. We had a family holiday to Bali booked a year in advance, you see, and it was our dangling carrot, guiding us through end-of-year malaise, the mishmash of bubbling mince on the stove top, the rush to beat the traffic for music lessons, the tedium of swim squad and the daily ironing of uniforms. Ever get to that point of the school term where you feel as though you’re limping towards a finish line? Read full article

Wednesday Gratitude – Summer, Sydney and Christmas Trees

<a href="/blogs/yvettevignando/2010/12/01/wednesday-gratitude-%E2%80%93-summer-sydney-and-christmas-trees">Wednesday Gratitude – Summer, Sydney and Christmas Trees</a>

This is part of our Christmas Tree. I took the photo this morning.Until about 5 years ago we (I mean my husband) used to always make the pilgrimage out to the live Christmas tree farm (somewhere west of Sydney) and choose the perfectly-shaped tree, cut it down and with some difficulty, wedge it into the car next to one or two over-excited children.
