Winter has gripped us all, and by golly gosh is it chilly. Thank goodness for the sunny days.
The kids have just two days of school left and then they have their winter school holidays for three weeks. We simply can't wait for Mom and Dad's arrival from Aus.... Ken will be collecting Mom from Joburg with Ed Lowndes and Brian. (They will be with us for a week. Ed hunted here two years ago, so it's gonna be lekker to welcome him back!) Mom will spend a week with us and then head to see Aunty May (Mom's sister) in East London while Dad is in Sudan.
Keep warm, and write when you can! We love hearing from you! Love from us all xxx

Mike and Betsy Carroll arrived yesterday too, and he started hunting this morning. They had some great sightings in Thornybush, and from us they head off to Mozambique for five days... Vic Falls for two days... then Cape Town for another five days... :D
Winter is here... brrrrrr with about five layers of clothes on - thank goodness for the sunny days!

Micaela is in the middle of exams. They have another two weeks of school, then they break for the July holidays! :) They have worked very hard!
JohnD is getting very excited, he plans to ride in the Kremetart Cycling Race this weekend. He wants to do the 30km mountain bike race... but I really think it is will be too much for him! We currently are "locking heads" over it.... but I have a feeling i'm gonna win this one! He has only had his bike (THANK YOU AGAIN ILSE!!!) for about a month, so he is not fit enough to do such a challenging race.
Big hugs to you all!!!!! :) Winter is here, it's cold and sunny. Clear skys, and very crisp mornings. We have a full camp with all of the cyclists this weekend, and then we are excited to welcome Mike and Betsy here from Charleston.
