We have a Moving Date!

Yikes, we have a moving Date……a Date that is about 8 weeks away and now I am offically freaking out. We have pictures of our new home that I will not post here at present since I am not currently the resident in the home, but we are happy, very happy with the home we have been allocated in our new community by Queensland Education.

Now all I have to do is pack up this place……well thats a lie acutally I don’t have to pack it, I have to sort it. The movers pack it for us. But sorting this crazy mess it not going to be fun……..

We have decided to have a Huge cull, a room by room cull and my back patio is where everything getting culled is going at present and its not a pretty sight as you can see.20121115-094143.jpg20121103-104713.jpg

This is a new start for us…..We are no longer fostercarers, we need a new start, a new community that every time we go to the shopping mall we are not running into a child we have cared for, or a birth family that hates us…..

My husband wants to be challenged more in his teaching, Learn new styles, and we want to teach our children about Indigenous Culture, Life and Community, Not from a book or from a white person view but from the Elders and community members who love their communities and people.

We are not nieve we know that life is going to be very different for us, that we will have to earn respect and a place within the community, we know that we are white people, that our intentions will be under close observation and respect is hard to earn but easy lost.

We can’t wait to experience the good, bad and maybe even a bit of ugly(which will likely be from me if the internet ever goes down, or the mail can’t be flown in due to bad weather LOL), we know that we will experience some of each but we also know that most of what we will experience will be good and that is because the community we are going to has respected Elders who are ensuring that culture is kept, that language is kept and that their beautiful community moves in the right direction.

Next year is going to be a time of change, challenges and joy for us, we can’t wait to get moved and settled.

Keep Safe and Look out for each other,

Nicki

    • LOL, Yes we are very aware of the Heat, Lucky for us QLD Ed has given us a newish home, it has split systems in every room. Schools are airconditioned too…..We arrive slap bang in the middle of wet season which will be adventure. One of Mr T’s Work friends is up there at present so she has been giving us lots of info. Although Mr T has never lived away from Brissy, I am a Country/Bush girl from way back….so at least of us has some idea what we are in for LOL
