While we were on the west coast in July, my sister’s family moved from their home in Tamworth to a new residence in the coastal town of Coffs Harbour. The kids were excited at the possibility of playing with their cousins again, so we detoured to see the Croakers while we were still on the north coast of NSW.
Andy grew up in this area — close to the beach — and is pleased his children will have a similar experience. Even on a rainy day, the waves are beckoning us for a play.
The girls enjoy watching a movie together on the big screen.
The rain is relentless, and Delenn accompanies Lana down to the bus when Lana decides she wants her "red ruggie" to cuddle while she watches tv.
Bowen is eager to show me some of his sophisticated creations in Minecraft. I love seeing how older kids use the games that my girls are just starting out with, and I look forward to watching the girls' progress.
Flynn is football mad and uses the tablet to introduce me to his favourite teams and players.
I see many similarities between Carla and Elora, and it'll be interesting to see if one of my daughters grows to be like me too!
It was a joy to catch up with Carla and Andy and see how their kids are growing. It’s been almost a year since we last played together, and it’s fun to hear the kids talk about their new interests and passions. I’m glad to have seen their beautiful new home and hope that they continue to settle in comfortably!
