A fourteen hour time change is not all that easy to adjust to. This problem is compounded by having children who are also lagging. In fact, I think each child increases the jet lag effect by a power of one. Additionally, being sick (which Elizabeth and I both are) doubles the problem. So if you are trying to calculate our jet lag, use this equation:
(JL)4 x 2 x 2
where “JL” is a normal person’s jet lag.
Thankfully though, we are spending time at grandparents’ houses so that lessens the burden a bit, but then again it makes the kids more hyper, so it’s a wash.
Anyway, here are a few more pictures from our time in Sydney.
