Gem made a challenge for everyone to blog so I am going to.
It’s pretty cold here in the Alice. It was minus 1 when I left for work this morning. I was pretty grateful that mum is a way so I could drive car instead of ride the motorbike, I think I might have froze to death on the bike.
Working four days is going pretty well. There has been a lot of uncertainty about what I am supposed to be doing though. I am working on a new Australia wide program and no one really knows what it would look like. My colleague and I have slowly been coming up with ideas about how we might implement it and we finally have one I am feeling a bit excited about. It was also very affirming this week as others seem to want to use our model to implement the program in their area. Anyway, I guess we’ll see if it works in practice the way it does in theory but if it does I feel it could be quite engaging. Not that’s going to change the world or anything but it could be kinda of fun and I’ll learn a lot. I mis being at home more with Nina though.
Martin is still at home with her most days but currently has an application in for three great jobs. He is working one or two weekends a month teaching motorbike riding which he likes but would like to be working more. I mentioned on the last post he would be working 1 day a week with a scholarship program at CDU but that’s finished now so we are really hoping he gets one and would appreciate your prayers.
We have had some lovely visits in the last months too. Gem, dad and Hayley were here for our birthday and recently Miriam, Steve and Shona were her and she and Nina had a pretty good time playing together (well most of the time) and they were so cute together. Nine continues to amaze me at how rapidly she grows and picks things up. She truly has become such a delightful little person.
I give thanks for and all the continued blessings of living in this place.
