We’ve driven south of Sydney to the small seaside village of Austinmer just north of Wollongong to meet up with David’s mother Roselin. She’s a minister at the local Uniting Church. When we were heading down, we didn’t know that David’s father Hugh was also driving through the night to make the family reunion complete!
It’s been a year since we last saw Roselin, so we’ve had a lot to catch up on. We’ve been to New Zealand in the interim, and Roselin experienced her own adventures in New Zealand’s South Island last month. Of course, our girls have changed a lot since she last spent time with us, so we hung out peacefully in a park where she could play with our girls.
It’s great to finally be here, to see where Roselin works and lives. She moved down almost two years ago, and this is the first time that we’ve been able to visit! Next time, we hope it won’t be so long between trips!
