The Grace's Adventure Down Under

We left Pearson Airport in Toronto in the middle of a snowstorm on Jan. 21, 2006. Birgit (Heidi's mom) and the Betchers (our exchange partners) were kind enough to drive us to the airport. I think the Betchers were starting to think Canadian winters weren't as bad as they had heard. Three days of plus 0 temps including a 12C day then wham Saturday the snow hit (much to Kate's pleasure). We stopped in Van and Honolulu before arriving in Sydney. The flights were easy, the kids were awesome and Dave didn't even complain whine too much about the lack of leg space.

Anthony, Bernidette and daughter Rebecca as well as Susan and son Ryan picked us up at the airport and escorted us to our new home. The Betchers house is beautiful - hardwood floors throughout and lots of wood trim - just the way we like it. Adam started playing with Alex's lego and Charlee immediately posted a sign "No boys allowed" and placed it on her new bedroom door!

Tomorrow we head to the beach!
