August 12 - Saying of the Week

Cai - at only 16 months - is already garnering an amazing vocabulary of words many of which he understands. However, typically, there are some things which he has picked up and uses in his own way.

"Home" - what he calls our minivan. Presumably because we always tell him that he is (mostly) going home when getting in the van to drive somewhere !

"Alright" - what he says when he either does not want something or has had enough of something, usually food or drink. (He started off saying "no" but then we would say "alright" - so that is what he has picked up on !)

He has an absolute fascination with the moon and is constantly looking for it in the sky - often finding it in the early morning or late afternoon sky when it is still showing. His first full sentence - over a month ago - was "I see de moon" - as he pointed up to it !

August 5 - Saying of the Week

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always." Mahatma Gandhi

House Farewell

Today was a bitter-sweet day as we handed over our house to the new owner. I (Gordon) was up early this morning for a final walk around the "estate" and through all the empty rooms. Sadness on my heart as I recalled many happy and sad events that we have been through during the 17 years of living and growing in our beautiful home. But glad that we had finally come to the end of a hectic time of packing and cleaning - and looking forward with anticipation to the next chapter of our lives.

The morning sunlight was - as always - a perfect time of day to take some memorable photos.
