Very Zen

very-zen

After a very steamy summer (heat indices well over 100/40) a lot, fall is already settling in here in the north midwest, so we are enjoying the last days of sun and fun as much as possible.

Nonie loved summer camp (no pics sadly as the camera was MIA) — lots of swimming and boating and outdoor sports and activities, and basketball training, oh, and more swimming) — and has loved going to water parks and having play dates and riding her bike (she can ride a very big girl bike now). Lots of Mummy and Daddy time and even a visit to Miss Jane at Lifeways where she got to show all of the little kids how big she has gotten (i.e. she gave heaps of piggy back rides).

We went off to Door County (the peninsula north east of us that separates Green Bay from Lake Michigan) for two nights. Really, really beautiful. We found delightful beaches, gorgeous state parks, and yummy food (oh, and bugs, of course). Nonie made lots of friends, loved the ferry to Washington Island, and rode nearly 11 miles (18 kilometres) on a rented bike.

Nonie’s favourite phrase of the summer: “that’s awkward!”

School has started for the very big kids, and Nonie is very excited to join Miss Jeanette in Grade 1 (which is upstairs!!!) at DMA after Labor Day.

Love to everyone. We miss you heaps! See you here at nerdtobe soon with some video highlights and, most likely, after Thanksgiving with more pics and news.

June 2012

Me and daddy have uploaded a mish mash of great photos and videos from June 2012, including a visit from Patrick Lichty, and camel and bike rides in Milwaukee (the latter I learned from walking to trail-blazing - literally - in 3 days flat!). I saw cousins and aunts, uncles and grandparents, good friends and newborns (and art!) in New York, and helped daddy pick images from my folks’ time in Leeds. It was my first time away from Mommy and Daddy, while Pop-pop and Babba, in from NYC, took care of me at home. It was super fun - and I’ve been loving JCC camp - but I’m glad to have my parents back just in time for the 4th of July. Yay, fireworks! TWICE! I’ve been learning to read and doing lots of fun math over the Summer, too. Today: bike parade! More photos soon. Love to all my fans - Nonie.

Here are some of the things I have been up to since August (busy, busy, busy) and here are two movies of me (firstly, eating Halloween cookies and telling scary tales of monsters and then dancing in a Isadora Duncan/Mick Jagger sort of way). Enjoy … We miss you all!!! Happy Halloween!!!

Mommy and daddy finally got around to editing some video clips together from our great holiday in Disney with the US family. I miss my granny and grandpa and ouma and oupa and uncle emy and auntie sam (and especially little leo) SOOOOOO much. Here’re are two video memories - I wish I had some of my South African family, too! For them, just below, some newer photos - mommy says I am growing too too fast….

Yes, we’ve got a diaper-load of photos we’re about to put online from our trip to South Africa! In the meanwhile, below is a photo, followed by two ADORABLE videos - Sid and Daddy playing on the couch at Grandpa Howie’s place. Afraid that may be it with the videos for a while, tho — Dad’s video camera completely died while in South Africa (it had a nearly 7-year run….). Enjoy!

OOOOOOH

Video 1 and Video 2.
