The Blue Mountains of Australia

On day two of our Easter holiday, we visited the Blue Mountains. This was about a 90 minute drive north from our home in Sydney. The blue mountains were beautiful, and it was fun to go on a hike with Gregory. George and William were not in the mood for an hour hike so Stan volunteered to take them on short walks to lookout points, and to hang out at the visitor's centre while Gregory and I had a little one-on-one time. It was really fun to be outdoors two days in a row. Illawarra and the Blue Mountains are two lovely places to visit and close enough to Sydney that we didn't need to get a BnB. On our hike, Gregory updated me with all the lastest news of minecraft, asked me what was my favourite dragon, minecraft tool, and dinosaur. He told me about school, moving to different countries, and how he was settling in. I think Gregory has matured a lot this last year. He is a wonderful child, so caring and mindful of others. He has learned to roll with life, and to adjust the best he can and adapt to new schools and new ways of doing things. I am proud of him, and I am grateful for his good example. I love my three sons. They are each so incredible, and I feel so blessed to be their mother.
