Sometimes I think the scariest thing for a kindergartener is not getting into trouble but getting something wrong. Misspelling (or not knowing how to spell) a word is possibly their biggest fear. This is why I LOVE Lucy Calkins. Yesterday was our first Writer's Workshop lesson about stretching words and writing the sounds that you hear. After we did our Small Moment writing, we read The Ghost's Dinner. My kiddos soooo very bravely wrote what ghosts like to eat! Some were absolutely petrified to even attempt writing tough words like "chocolate" and "pumpkin." But after we stretched the word together and they wrote what they heard, their confidence shot waaaay up! It was so awesome to see so many break throughs yesterday. I got far too excited and forgot to take more close up pictures of their writing! Everyone misspelled absolutely everything except the word "like," which is completely okay! What matters is that they made an attempt and they're building confidence to put thoughts on paper 💛👌🏼
#KADR & #BSR Spent the late morning exploring the Queen Victoria Building which houses many shops. It opened in 1898 and was recently refurbished and reopened in 2009 complete with this working Royal Clock complete with an automaton ship. #royalclock#queenvictoriabuilding#sydney
Eigentlich esse ich gar nicht so viel Brot und ich vermisse es auch nicht so sehr wie Thomas. Der Arme, echt. Hat sich jetzt wochenlang abgemüht das perfekte #Sauerteigbrot zu backen, allerdings vergeblich. Er steckte da unfassbar viel Zeit und Energie hinein, er weiß mittlerweile alles über #Sauerteig und zeigte erstaunliches Durchhaltevermögen. Trotzdem waren die bisherigen Ergebnisse eher ernüchternd. Da wollte ich es wissen. Ich probierte das nächstbeste Rezept mit vielen, sehr guten Rezensionen. Ich machte alles anders als er und ließ den Teig sogar über Nacht im Kühlschrank "gehen". Thomas belächelte meine unübliche Herangehensweise zuerst, aber freute sich schließlich über den köstlichen Leckerbissen zum Abendbrot. Das war das beste selbst gebackene Brot so far 👌
Allerdings wäre das nie so gut geworden, wenn er nicht den weltbesten #Starter herangezogen hätte. Perfektes #Teamwork sozusagen 💪☺️ #sourdoughbread#eigenlob#darfauchmalsein#backebackebrot#dasistausbaufähig#expatlife#verzweiflungstat#überraschendesergebnis#mademyday

Happy anniversary to me!
3 years ago I left Sweden. What I left behind was a life I unknowingly resented, a relationship that I didn't know had broken me down, a job I wasn't aware made me unhappy, a way of looking at life that I couldn't see was unhealthy.
What I found has no price, 6 months has turned in to 3 years. I have been put back together and learnt what love should be like. What the thought of Monday should feel like. What actually matters and what happiness really is. 💙
Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!🇦🇺I've never actually heard an Australian yell this chant, but it seems fitting for the occasion.
It's hard to believe that I left home and moved to Australia almost a year ago. It's been a challenging year, as virtually nothing went according to plan. I thought I'd move to Melbourne, land an amazing corporate job, meet a wonderful group of friends, and have the best year of my life. But Australia had other plans for me and I wound up doing things I never thought I would, or even could do. I found myself working in the outback, removed from everything that made me comfortable, living in a pop up camper, and fighting a losing battle with the multitude of ants and butcher birds that relentlessly tried to eat all of the food in our kitchen. There were times when I felt like this year had been a complete waste, and other times I felt so incredibly thankful for the perspective it's given me. There were times I felt so weak, I wasn't sure my legs would stay upright; but there were other times I felt strength I didn't even know I had in me. Ive learned to find comfort in myself and my people, not in material things. I've learned that time is the most valuable thing we have and it shouldn't be taken for granted. I've learned that, no matter how well you've planned it, life doesn't always turn out the way you thought it would. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The decision to stay in Australia for another year was an easy one to make. There are so many more places to see and things to do... but really, we just needed more of everything. More time with each other and on this journey; more money for future adventures; more nights spent under the stars; more nights spent with friends (under a roof); more underwater adventures; more memories in this country and more life in our year. So here's to one more trip around the sun, another year in the land down under, and in a way, a bit of a do-over. I'm excited to leave next year unplanned and see what this place has in store for us.
I may never think of Australia as Home, but I'll always remember how I grew up here.
