“Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the mountains and the stars up above. Let them look at the beauty of the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. They will then begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education.” - David Polis 🌞 Experience #educationaltours at our 3-day family camp this weekend. Details and tickets linked in bio. ☝🏽
Post DRCI launch, our next important initiative was family camp. One of the very first DAVIC camps that Charlotte went on was an 8hr round trip. Because she had to be booked in by 10am, it also required separate overnight accommodation. Of course when something is worthwhile, as parents we do these things, however there had to be a cheaper, closer, less exhausting, financially taxing alternative available? There wasn't - so we created it. Our annual family camp is the highlight of every year, our main priority is for newly diagnosed children to understand they are not alone & for their parents to also understand that many different voices of opinion offer perspective, which is helpful when we often feel like we are in this on our own.🌈#peersupport#type1diabetes#familycamp#type1mum#drci @mylee.xx
Im sitting on a bunk at Busselton Baptist Camp with this smorgasbord of soul food before me listening to the rain drop onto an old tin roof. A weekend away at a family camp surrounded by both big and little people we love has left the perfect space for reflection. The children are running wild, and the adults are moving slowly, both for the same reason of “just because we can”. @amandaviviers words are speaking nourishing encouragement to my weary soul, which, after a season that can only be described as manic, is in desperate need of this time of reflection. “Often we talk about the inception of an idea and the completion of the idea, but we often ignore the time in-between: the waiting place...I have learnt that the in-between is the greatest place of growth.” If you haven’t bought the beautiful Mrs Viviers new workbook yet, just do it! It will be the greatest act of self care you have done for yourself all year! 💕❤️💕#soulfood#reflection#iskippedthebeachgames#shhdonttell#selfcare#timeaway#bussleton#familycamp @rochellemasters @glennondoyle

#Thanksgiving is for friends and family coming together to share a meal and give thanks! Food is a big part of our weeks on Star, so here’s a throwback to the late night cooking class during SG1 where John Flynn taught us to make 3 dishes. We cooked, laughed, socialized, and dined as a #community ! Happy Thanksgiving from your Star Gathering family!
