Dutch Blitz

There is nothing like a hearty game of Dutch Blitz...

and chess...

With good friends.

Steven and his family have been so helpful to us since we moved here. Details of their kindness need their own post.

new laoban

I'm fixing to have the kids take over Hen & Chicks as soon as possible. They made these cinnamon rolls themselves a while back. (with the help of the thermomix, of course)

Fading memories

I'm going through old pictures in preparation for our end-of-year homeschooling presentation. I need to prove that we have been diligently dispensing knowledge on a daily basis. Thankfully, I don't need to prove this. The committee is obliging and supportive. Nevertheless, I'm going to try to give off the impression that all we do around here learn and create in peace and harmony. Thanks to Jin-li for the idea she gave me long ago - simply glue photo documentation to A4 paper, and have the kids write about what they did. In no time, we'll have a folder full of cute, creative projects. Never mind that they occurred perhaps twice a month. So anyway, I'm taking a happy trip down memory lane of this past year. I want to write down as many memories here as possible before they slip into the fog of my 37 year old brain.

For example, I wish I could remember what song these three were dancing to here:

I have a hunch it was Nicole Mullen's My Redeemer Lives. How can you not dance to that song?
