We are a creative homeschooling family of 3. I have homeschooled my 2 boys from the start and we do lots of unit studies and get out into our beautiful part of the world as often as we can.
As the boys are getting older and we are getting busier I find I am posting less about our journey but will continue to update occasionally.

If We Wont Go To The River-

The River will come to us-

This is Mr5 he is standing on the road into town- not much traffic today.



We are flooded in, again.

The trees in the paddock are getting a good big drink

This is the overflow from the dam in the paddock behind our home.
Releasing some of our rain from last night.
We are hoping all the turtles are OK

It is not too bad here, but friends of ours are being evacuated in Lismore, Ulmarra and Grafton.

The water level has come up so fast, we have had 230mm rain overnight, on top of 105mm yesterday and it is pouring rain again now, no one has ever seen it rise so fast before- the power suppy is a bit erratic as well so I will post more later.

Oh wow!
I'm on the phone to Dorothy who's explaining where the river actually is and how far it's come up to near your place.... That's quite scary!!
Is that a duck floating down the driveway/waterfall?
Please keep safe. We're praying for you.

Thanks Alecat,

that is a fence post and a little bit of ground hanging in there whilst all around is eroded away-

We are safe
