 Watching and waiting for Papa to bring Tante Karen from teh airport!! It was SO great to have her visit...even for just a few days :}
What strange kids!!  Below Emma is playing cricket...kinda....we still need some help with the rules!

 Emma in the Harvest Festival at Glass Primary...She did really well with her lines and singing the was great that Karen could be there for it!

September 2013

 After about 4 months of watching our sunflowers grow from seeds, we were very excited to see them be SO tall...
 Peter is just over 6 feet tall...We even got the heads after then died to feed the bird the dried seeds.
 We have had such amazing weather, both this summer and this fall...we have gotten to play outside so much...

and we said goodbye to our lovely Ford Mondeo...we upgraded to a 7 seater-a Ctitreon Grand Picasso :}

Chicken Pox continued ;}

Sam got his chicken pox exactly 13 days after Emma started....
And Ben got his 13 days after was a long 5 1/2 weeks.   Sam had the most, but Ben itched and fussed the most...and I am SO glad we will never have that again....
