Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to camp we go!!

I made a very sudden and exciting decision yesterday that involves me and Alice, a boat, a car, about 2000km and a week away from the family. The annual Families with Children from China camp is on at the end of September in Adelaide, and I had initially dismissed it as impossible, mainly because we are off to the Gold Coast at the beginning of the month. Anyway, I had the bright idea yesterday that Alice and I could go by ourselves, thus saving money and making a very fun adventure for the two of us!! So we leave on the Spirit of Tasmania (large boat which travels from Tassie to the 'mainland' part of Australia) on Friday September 25th, sail overnight and wake up in Melbourne at 7am the next day. Then were unload ourselves and our car, and drive the 800km or so to Adelaide, accompanied by my lovely friend Jen and her sweet daughter Ebony. The camp starts on Sunday afternoon and goes until Thursday, and is chock-full of games, crafts, food, workshops and guest speakers, with a distinctly Chinese theme all round. This will be our first FCC camp and I am VERY excited to be going - it is a great opportunity to met lots of new people, many of whom I know by name from the email groups, but have never met. So September looks to be a busy month for us - two weeks in sunny Queensland, home for a week then off to South Australia. Whoohoo!!!

Oh my gosh that sounds like a blast! We just got done with an overnight train trip, just us two gals, so I understand adventures! I bet you gals have a wonderful time.

Take LOTS of pics (as if I need to remind *you*, lol!).

Cheers, Kiy
