Tennis / Cricket / Horses / Birds ... Happy days!

Little Twitter - JohnD's little bird... found a way out of his cage two days ago. We couldn't find him anywhere, and we worried so much that he was lost. Well, it didn't take long for him to get hungry. We called and listened... and he found his way back to us - with his little beak wide open!!! Yesterday again, while JohnD was playing and stroking him, he flew off - but this time he didn't come back....for the whole night! Well, this morning - we were all DELIGHTED to hear him in the tree outside the kitchen - hungry and very ready to climb back into his little cage! We felt for sure that the night out was too much... but he seems fine! He has grown a lot, and is quite a character. He gets so very excited when anyone comes near him, and loves to be taken out and stroked!
They are both looking like different ladies, and are just so pretty. Jasmine still a little on the thin side, but so much better. They both had a shampoo yesterday afternoon, so they are shiny!

What great excitement this week. Ken put the gate in here at home, so we brought beloved Jasmine & Chloe "home"! It was quite a ride, as with them having had their injections, we didn't want them to work up a sweat! Because of the grids, we also had to go around the back of Silverbank, along the top boundary of the property... as Mr Buffalo Bill is in the area where we would normally have ridden through (where the gates are!!!).

JohnD had his first tennis & cricket lessons this week, and coped very well! He enjoyed them, and so we are signed up for him to continue... His hair is growing noticably now... and he is slowly gaining weight. A year ago today - he had his first operation...
We have such a faithful FATHER GOD!
The kids are participating in the "Triggies" go cart race tomorrow. This is the main public school in town. All of the ACE home school children have formed a team, so they are a crowd of approximately 34 children! :) Micaela is very excited... our team is "Ireland" and they are all going to be armed in orange, green and white!
We have had a busy camp this last week, folks from the UK and Sweden, as well as from Pretoria.
