So the wheels are almost on the tracks for us to go to "Spoke" next Thursday. After today's bureaucratic hurdle of Timo's passport submission (which then required Martin to go to a police station in the Spoke to get them to verify his identity), we just want to double check with customs that we have all the documentation we need to enter the country. That will be tomorrow's morning adventure.
The kids and I have been in Victoria since the middle of August and now we have 50% more kids than we had when we arrived. I can't remember the last time I was responsible for 3 square meals for a day let alone weeks on end. It will be so strange to leave here and set up camp in a totally new place. As Little Red says it "makes me feel excited, well, excited and scared." Oh, and it makes me feel tired, and overwhelmed and sad too.
