Thursday, June 19, 2009

It’s hard to believe that a month from today we will be on the plane flying to the US. I am excited to see (and hear) the kids reactions as soon much will be new. Ryan is really the only one who remembers anything about the states and he mostly remembers his friends. When I told Ginny the other day that she won’t be seeing pigs or chickens roaming the streets by grandma’s house, she replied, “Only cows walk the streets?” I think she was a bit disappointed at the answer.

A few nights ago, while we were sleeping, a few cows decided to help themselves to our yard. They “took” the lid off the chicken food and ate it all up. They ate the cat food and helped themselves to our passion fruit vine that was growing over lattice. This morning Ryan ran out of the house declaring a game of hide-and-seek. He froze as he stepped off our front porch, staring at a now scrawny bush. “Ah man! The cows ate my favorite hiding spot.” And, of course, they left us many cow pies!

Do you think we will have those problems in the states?

Your kids look so happy. I hope you have a great time when you come here. I enjoy hearing from you even though I hardly ever communicate.

Amy and Jeff,
We are so excited about your return to the states. It's been far too long since we've seen you and the kids. Whitney and I would love to spend some time photographing your family (especially the kids, but Jeff can be in one or two). :)

All is well here. Just planning a near future move to Oklahoma City in order to set up our photography business. Lots to do. We'll be in touch. Take care and give Jeff our best.

Wooo hooo! If you want to visit the mountains let us know! Poor Ginny. She will miss her animals. You will miss your terere. :) (is that how you spell it?)
