Very interesting and packed with information about real family life. I'm assuming this is a true story--how wonderful to have experienced another culture. Great job of bringing the reader to Amanda's ranch.
I was glad I got to go along with you on your trip. I learned a great deal about life in Australia and enjoyed the process.

A pleasure to read, packed full with homely aussie descriptions. The sense of joy and wonder comes through loud and clear.
I'll bet that was quite an experience for a midwestern girl. The metal roof, and the rain, to one who lives their would probably consider it soothing, but would definitely keep me awake.

So enjoyed this. Felt so folksy and at home. There are some wonderfully amazing entries this week, and this is definitely one of them!
I enjoyed this story a lot. It was fun getting transported to an Australian sheep farm. I felt like I was there. Thank you for sharing.
