Hello Family and Friends,
It's hard to believe, but we are actually creating a bit of a rhythum and schedule around here. Monday mornings start slow, but we set out mid-day to run errands and get the week started. We make appointments, check emails, and get the week set up for what we need to accomplish. It may sound boring, but actually it's SO nice to have created the start of a life around here!
Not much to report on the weekend because Casey and I were both sick with a stomach bug. We are both still a bit 'off' but definitely getting better. What made it so hard was that Sunday we were both dead and Kieren was happy and on the move! Thankfully, our friend and neighbor Jamie Kallis took Kieren to Hout Bay for the day for a family outing they were having. The house was VERY quiet but it was nice to just lay on the couch and not feel like we were neglecting our child! We watched so many movies this weekend - which I love! Being sick is always a bummer, but the good thing is that it makes you slow down a bit which was great.
Kieren turned 11 months this weekend - WHAT?? Seriously she is a little person and on the move ALL the time. It's hard to even tell when she is ready for a nap because she is so happy and enjoys playing and crawling and cruising aroung the whole house. She also continues to look more and more like her dad. As they say in Ocean View, 'shame.' :)
Looking forward to a good week of meeting with people, Casey is looking ahead to the next Ubuntu events, and hanging with our friends and neighbors. A prayer that we honestly have for the week is to begin spiritually and mentally preparing for Christmas - because it's less than 2 weeks away and we feel so out of touch!
Lots of love,
