Some rain!

I guess no news is good news! Both kids are doing very well... busy, happy, active and keeping out of mischief! JohnD really would prefer not to be bothered with school - which I guess is true of most little boys!!! He'd rather play and hunt all day.

We are enjoying some cooler weather and trust it will bring with it the much needed rain.
Hugs to you all.
Love us

Our bouncing Ball!

Guess I should put a caption under this picture... "impatiently waiting for breakfast!!"

We are so very pleased to report that JohnD's chemo at the end of last week was a "breeze" ... really he just sailed through. We had a fairly busy weekend, with both Micaela and JohnD needing to write their Gov exams on Saturday morning. I was concerned that with he chemo having been so recent, he may not have been up to it, but with the ample supply of children around him... he just went with the flow and didn't bat an eyelid! :)

We are thoroughly enjoying a camp full of family from the UK and from Johannesburg and the Cape... 3 little babies to play with and a small toddler. I have not seen some of my cousins for about five years! It is good to catch up with them all.

Hugs to you all from the bush!

Uncle Rick!

This past month has just flown by! We had Rick here from Boise for a month, and it was just wonderful to see him again. He and Ken had a wonderful two weeks in Namibia, and thoroughly enjoyed the various different places they visited there.

Micaela and JohnD have swapped bedrooms! The house still has not recovered from the major shaking!!! Micaela has been in her room almost 12 years, and he has been after it for at least 6 of those years.

JohnD and I head back to Pretoria again tomorrow for his 2nd session of VAC. The van is all packed up and we will leave early tomorrow. Hope to be home before dark on Friday. Fortunately he really knows what it is all about, and does not seem phased by it any more.

Just love your emails - thank you so much for sending them. Big hugs from us all.
