Wrestling on the floor

Two old pics from vacation last january

Just found these and wanted to share them. I took classes in another country and my parents met us to see the grandkids last January. In my free time from class we big a banana boat as a group. Also, gramma and The Peanut had a lot of bonding time.

Intricate handiwork of interior houses

Being accustomed to cut wood and nails, I find the housebuilding techniques of the interior peoples fascinating - even artistic. No plastic, no metal, just stuff you can get from the tree out back.

Village formation

Life is changing for the K people.

They are beginning to build houses and live together in villages.

Violence is up, but who really can get along with neighbors anyway?

The adjustments that these people are experiencing is more than any of us could ever imagine, but they desire this and are enthusiastically building their houses as they become "townies." They are begging for schools and healthcare.

Pray for a smooth transition.

Everyone needs a chest high pet cassowary bird

Little girl in grass skirt

At first she ran from me, like many interior little kids do. But then she cautiously wanted to see the white guy.

Interior portraits

Who needs toys!?

Kids make toys out of anything. Here is their latest car...or choo choo train depending on Big Brother's mood.

The mighty gecko hunter!

Baby Sister is now 1 year old!

Smearing the face with cake is a must for every one-year old birthday right!? And she loves ice cream oh so much!

Big Brother and Baby Sister - an inseparable pair

New family pics

Passing through another island we took the opportunity to get new photogaphs of the kids, who are growing SOOOooooooo fast.

Wow, we cannot believe how fast they grow and this confirms to us how precious every day with them is.
