I'm still beside myself! There was a KOALA in the tree next to Heath and Jessica's classrooms this afternoon at pickup. I was standing chatting to some of the lovely new mum's that have made me feel so welcome. One of them tapped me on the shoulder and pointed and said 'there's a koala over there'. They all laughed (but really really nicely!!) at how excited I was. I am so used to kangaroos, we just go 'oh yes, another kangaroo....' but a KOALA!!!!!!!!! They are used to them and it's just another koala.
Of course we had to drive home, collect my camera, and drive back to school so I could photograph him and believe it properly. I'm still breathless. What a wonderful part of the world.
