Guess what? We went back to the Royal Botanic Gardens last Sunday!
Our friends were away for the weekend and lent us their car, so we thought, why not go to the city again! And the hubby wanted to do a picnic, so we cooked spaghetti bolognese, bundled everything and everyone, and off we went.
One of the things that excite us about Melbourne is the outdoor life. Even before we moved here, the hubby and I were talking about going to Melbourne parks every other weekend. So last weekend, we made a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, specifically for the Ian Potter Foundation Children’s Garden.
Even as I am typing this, she is in the midst of annoying me by kicking her toys everywhere. And she is doing it on purpose because she is staring at me with that smug face and announcing to me “Amy is kicking the playground. Amy is kicking the Peppa Pig playground mama.”
As we are all new to winter and cold weather, I am constantly thinking about how to keep my kids warm and at the same time how not to overheat them. My mind is constantly planning how to dress them – how many layers, which material, which jacket, when to remove the layers, how to prepare them for the night, etc.
One of the biggest things that my family and I had been preparing for was this big move to Australia. The hubby came first two months ago, to get settled down in his job and to get a house. And finally, the kids and I are able to join him.
That was how it was 11 years ago. Now, it’s known as “Edge TV”. I’ve been hosting and serving in this Edge TV ministry for 11 years. I still remember when my church first started this, it was a ‘according to flow’ thing. It would just be me and the camerawoman, and we would ask the church staff what announcements they wanted to be featured. Then I just had to plan my script as I went along.
