Get Talking - Childhood Memories

This week the card is:
Describe a favourite childhood memory.

Hmm ... where do I start? There are so many good memories.

But I think, perhaps my favourite is something that happened when I was in Grade 5. My Dad had long service leave from his job, so we packed the car and headed off up the east coast of Australia. With stops along the way, we made our way up as far as Cairns and then back again - we had almost the whole of Term 4 away from school. My teacher didn't send any homework - I just had to do a diary of our travels. I learned so much on that trip - things I would never have learned or experienced in a classroom. Thanks Dad!
