Exploring mulga country on our bikes. Mondays are usually reserved for maths in 'bus school' but yesterday we mixed things up a bit. In the morning the boys and I went for a long walk and conducted a bird survey along the river, then started reading a new library book written by Anangu about Maralinga (where the British government conducted its atomic bomb testing in the 1950s). We had the choice of quiet reading or audio books over lunch. And some Lego construction and home economics (folding washing and putting it away) in the afternoon. The day finished with a bike ride to the river again in the late afternoon, with Sam joining us when she finished her long working day just before sunset. Not a bad way to start the week! 
A special welcome to my new Instagram followers after Sunday's news story about our isolation in the outback on @abcbrisbane by @shelley_lloyd_bris! Thanks for the kind words and comments everyone.

Our favourite place to be in the late afternoon. Down by the river at the back of the property. We've all started keeping bird lists and our pages are filling quickly. We've spotted whistling kites, a brown falcon nesting across the river, a wedgetailed eagle outside the front gate, mallee ringnecks, a forest kingfisher, a noisy family of white-winged choughs, peaceful doves and diamond doves, to name but a few!#buslife #outbackqueensland #outback #homeschool #nature

A few snaps from our winter getaway to visit Sam's parents in Binginwarri, South Gippsland. We put down our phones for a while, read books, walked in the forest, enjoyed homemade soups, celebrated my 44th birthday, caught up on lots of sleep and tried our best to stay warm! It was a wonderful break for everyone. We're back in Brisbane now and I'm doing my best to find the mental energy and motivation to get our bus finished in the next few months. ~ Keiran.

Bonfire night at Grandma and Pop's. We're on a short break in country Victoria to spend some time with Sam's parents. We've been recharging our batteries, catching up on sleep, exploring the bush that surrounds their property, playing games and reading lots of books with the kids. We've also spent time drawing up a battle plan for getting the bus project finished upon our return to Brisbane next week.

A beautiful morning for a paddle! I was up early and on the water before sunrise today. The Boondall Wetlands were alive with the sounds of birdsong, the water seemed like glass and the first rays of sunlight were so warm and soothing. A terrific way to start the day!

Tonight's magnificent sunset show over Lake Samsonvale near #Brisbane. The boys and I were treated to a most beautiful scene! I took a day off today from working on the bus, instead enjoying a sunrise kayak in the Boondall Wetlands, a picnic lunch and splash about at Cedar Creek with the boys, and then this incredible sunset at the lake tonight!

The boys and I ventured out to Tinchi Tamba Wetlands Reserve late this afternoon for a little bushwalk. We ended up at the bird hide overlooking Bald Hills Creek. Along the way we saw dozens of kangaroos. The mozzies were out in force but we had a great arvo exploring! I've been working long hours on the bus lately and am conscious of the need to strike a balance between getting the bus project finished and enjoying some adventures with the boys. We are all at our happiest when immersed in nature. It was a wonderful afternoon together walking, talking, learning and laughing. ~ Keiran.

Collecting things. One of the many cicada exoskeletons that we found today! The boys and I went on another adventure today, enjoying a picnic lunch at Boombana in D'Aguilar National Park (Mt Nebo), a rainforest circuit walk and then a refreshing late afternoon swim at our new favourite spot - Cedar Creek near Samford. A great day out! And a lovely break from bus building! ~ Keiran
