We spent the weekend in Canberra, a three and a half hour drive away from Sydney, and took Josh and Ashley to visit the Australian War Memorial on ANZAC Day. We placed a poppy in the Hall of Honour for the soldiers who sacrificed their lives. I've always loved the flanders poppy, which were one of the first flowers to sprout on the fields following the war. It was a reflective day.

We managed to squeeze in a visit to the Australian Mint and Questacon too, where you can easily spend hours and hours! The kids are in bed now and it's the end of the school holidays. School bags have been taken out of the cupboard, winter uniforms are ready to go and we are back to early starts again tomorrow! Hope you all enjoyed your holiday break too.

The Australian War memorial is such a moving place - how perfect to visit on the Anzac Day weekend. Hope the school term gets off to a great start - my kids don't return until Wed and we have a public holiday here in WA today.

While in Canberra did you see the Nurses Memorial ? It is beautifully crafted in glass, and fits in along with all the steel and action memorials for the men.
My first visit to your blog I enjoyed the visit .
