the last couple of weeks have been trying. poor alex has been knocked around first with a ruptured disc in his back, then a lingering cold, and just lately a gastro-bug (that thankfully left Reuben and I unscathed). It has made the preparing and packing for our internship slower and less straightforward... So little sleep, so many to-do lists! Still, there has been much to savor and rejoice in -  healing, springtime walks, meals with kin, usually warm weather, rediscovering sydney street art and eateries, taking a natural beekeeping course, swaying backyard canopy, freshly-unfolding wisteria...

today we'll commence three days of driving (stopping, resting, sight-seeing) to taranaki farm. I am a little scared though mostly excited about our new adventure... please do hold us in your thoughts and prayers for good health, navigation and a peaceful transition for our dearest, smallest member.
