It's alive

Kylie and I had our scan on Monday. It was a pretty amazing experience to see the baby's hands and feet and face and everything else for that matter! It has brought the reality home alot more, and was fantastic to see our baby for the very first time. I will post some pictures in the coming days, stay tuned.....

Finally some rain!!

My nephew Elliot on his very first day of school.... Check out the size of his backpack!! He caught the school bus from out the front of his house - I'm soooo proud, excited and nervous for him!

Downstream from the road

The road into our house. The dogs LOVED the water and Lucy had her 2nd ever swim.

Me standing in the raging torrent (and our friend's dog Kaia)

Well it's always exciting to get some rain out at Owen Springs and yesterday arvo it finally arrived. Our neighbour Ben rode home on his motorbike and had to push his bike through some creeklines, but when he got to this river it was bone dry.... an hour later I came home and the Hugh River was flowing! Our car got it's first taste of river crossings, slippery mud and big puddles - Phil was very jealous that I was driving!!

On a different note, I had a midwives appointment yesterday and all is well. Got to hear the heartbeat again which is going strong - probably the most reassuring sound for a 1st time nervous mum to be I think!!
