AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

It won’t be long now until we are back at work. School opens the 16th of August for teachers Love the old bulletin boards. We have them in our middle school and keep them all decorated. I am sure you all are excited about the Olympics like we are. Your Australian girls are always fearsome swimmers. genie
