This blog serves as a memory catcher for the Smith family’s adventures in Australia. Our family consists of Husband/Father (MWH), Wife/Mother (MBW) and a beautiful 12 year old daughter (MBD). MWH accepted a long term assignment in Australia in order to have his family with him rather than on the other side of the world. He spent around 8 of the 12 months of 2011 in Oz while MBW and MBD were in Knoxville, TN. We want this blog to document our adventures, trials and tribulations as we learn to live in a drastically different culture with a language all its own! Come journey with us…..
