We tried to be as true blue as we could today, especially considering the only full Aussie in the family was at work all day long.
* I told North a very very simplified version of Australian history with an emphasis on Aboriginal culture and the Dreamtime- all in story form with coloured scarves, finger puppets and wooden props.
* We read a few very Australian books and talked about Australian wildlife.
* We made lamingtons which we first read about in Mem Fox's beautiful Possum Magic. I'd never had one until today, so I'll have to wait to hear from Brad whether they're on the mark.
Of course there was no staple BBQ for this veggie family, but I think next year we might have a little one old enough for a little bit of cricket.
Hope you all had a g'day full of joy and laughter with your friends and family.
