Whew! Sorry for the lack of posting. It has been crazy here down under!! Teaching is going well, it is quite exhausting though. I knew the internship would be draining and exhausting no matter where I was but being in a foreign country throws a whole lot of new factors into the mix. I am learning a new curriculum, new ways of teaching etc in addition to doing my internship. I know in the long run I will only be stronger because of it but it is definitely difficult.
In addition to teaching the newness is wearing off and so I am definitely beginning to feel homesick and miss my normal routine at home. I knew it would happen and it is something I am going to have to deal with and have been dealing with. So if you could say some prayers for that it would be greatly appreciated.
With all of that I am having a ball here though. Last weekend we went down south about 3 hours to Margaret River which is the wine region. I was able to hang out with orphaned joeys at a wildlife park and had a lot of fun taking pictures with them! We also went to some beautiful beaches and I was able to say I have now been in the Southern Ocean as well! Of course (and I’d rather not admit this) I had no idea the Southern Ocean was actually an ocean until this weekend. I guess that was just skipped over in geography?
Anyway, I am going to put some pictures up but I am also going to share the facebook picture links. That way you can see the albums 🙂 Sorry for my lack of commenting but with lesson planning during the week I am just so worn out! I feel so pathetic because during the week all I do is come home, lesson plan and sleep but I am so exhausted that I don’t feel like doing anything else! The other girls who are in my program feel the same way though so I don’t feel as bad 🙂
