Wistful Wednesday


This picture was taken at my folks' house during the Christmas season in 1974.  My sister-in-law-in-law (brother-in-law's wife), Mavis, with her two children.  Wade is 3, born in November, and Glenda is nearly 5.  I'm there with Mavis ... you can see the back of Joy's head - she's 3, as well, born in August - and you can also see Jill's elbow next to Wade - she turned a year in November.  We had come home from Australia for about 6 weeks to show Jill off (no-one had seen her, yet) and spend time with family.  We had been in Australia for about 2 1/2 years and were at a turning point - do we stay in Australia and become citizens or do we move back to the States?

You must know what decision we made!  We ended up\ staying a total of 5 years, then moved back home - mostly because of family.  There are times that I wonder if we made the right decision - we really loved it in Australia.  We had lots of adventures there ... remind me to tell you about Ayres Rock someday ... it's Jody's favorite story!

It was a beautiful day today - you have a beautiful day!
