At little catching up to do. ! :)

Trevor & Rhyanne, Welcome to South Africa! We have full moon over the bush veldt, and lots of memories to make! What a joy to open the season with our 11 year old "South Carolina Huntress".
New friendships and new challenges. So who is going to shoot the most birds??? :)
The three children have clicked and there is much laughter and fun filling each day. "It truly is a blessing to hear the laughter of children"! (to quote Bill Snow)
We have had a little (much needed) rain, but otherwise our days are warm, sunny, clear, and beautiful!
Rhyanne made such a fantastic shot on her Gemsbuck! He dropped on the spot, and she has every reason to be very proud of her self!!! I think the hogs and impala need to beware. ;)

On a family note - Mom is doing very well. She is pretty mobile now with her crutches, and she is back into the teaching mode with the children. They will break for school holidays at the end of March. It has been a long first term!
Young Goosley has made the adventureous journey outdoors several times now, and has befriended the dogs! They play endless games of tag and hide & seek! The cats are pretty weary of her (giving her a wide bearth), and she has the run of the office! She is extremely playful, purrs like a kitten, and is very affectionate.

Mom is home!

We are so thankful... After a successful hip replacement operation last Monday (21st Feb), Mom and Dad arrived home yesterday afternoon. We missed them so much, and are so grateful that it all went well. It was a very tough time for them both, particularly Mom. We value your continued prayers for them both, and thank you for all of the calls and smses!
Here are a few pictures of little Gustav.... Or should I say Goosley.... (We are beginning to think that 'he' may in actual fact be a 'she', but we are not 100% sure!) We are slowly introducing Champ and Lady to her. The speed with which she moves has them quite uncertain about her, but "so far so good"!
Curled up asleep on my lap. Playing 'hide & seek' first thing in the morning while Micaela is trying to do her school work!
