A New Generation


Not that long ago there was this little girl, with blond hair that gradually turned brown as she grew older, whose stories lived here. Then one day I looked, and not only was she a teenager, but she wanted to write her own stories and capture her own memories just like her mama had done once upon a time when there seemed to be more time in the world.

Anyway, when this little girl, who here has been called 'Dolly' asked me if she could start her own blog. I replied, "Sure. Go ahead!". I was surprised by her reaction of pure shock and delight. It was as if she had thought it was some great privilege far beyond her reach and she fully expected to be denied. The truth is, the privilege is mine. Where I don't have the time to capture the little moments in pictures and play with the words to make the pictures come alive anymore, I still get to see these wonderful memories being preserved as see through the eyes of my own little (and not so little) ones.

So, if you come here to see the little things that happen in my wonderful corner of the world, and again find my words to be old and still, be of good cheer! There is another place where the record of these things is being written. Dolly has her own blog that she has called Memories in the Making. Take a peek, and cheer her on. She has the potential to keep you enthralled and entertained.

World Travelers!

Today, and yesterday if you want to be technical, we traveled over 4000 miles at speeds close to 1000 km/hr for nearly 10 hours to reach the other side of the world. It's been a wonderful adventure so far, and worth every second of the insane stress and frenzy that preparing for it caused.

About 3 weeks ago, Sir found out he had to go to London, UK and participate in some special meetings for his work during the first week of February. We started to talk about what he could do while he was in London for work and before I knew it, Cricket and I were going with him! At that point, the only person in our family that had a passport was Sir. So for the last 20 days or so, we've been packing and planning, and doing everything to get us ready to go and we managed to pull it off!

I promised the 7 kids that were going to be staying home with Grandpa and Grandma C. that I'd send them pictures of our trip. These are the pictures from our trip so far. Wednesday, January 31st and Thursday Feb 1st. They are not in order because I uploaded them weirdly, and I can't stay up long enough tonight to fix them. It's already after midnight here in London.


This sign looked like a person wearing moose antlers to me.


The hallway/tunnel down to the subway from the airport.


London chimneys and a sunset - taken from the subway train.


Looking back at the station on the walk to our hotel.


Our hotel room.


From a different angle.


And another angle.


Cricket at Dinner.


Just before going through security in Vancouver, Canada.


A model plane in the Vancouver airport.


Cricket's reaction to a photo book the other kids made for her before we left.


A really BIG fishtank in the Vancouver airport - on our way to our departure gate.


A closer look at the fish.


A giant chess board in the Vancouver airport - still on our way to our departure gate.


Watching the planes while we waited to board in Vancouver.


The Subway train coming into the station at the airport in London.


My favorite picture from this post. Cricket telling her daddy something special as we waited to board our plane in Vancouver.

And now it's half past midnight, so I'm going to bed!

Spur of the Moment, Sunday Evening Photo Shoot


The two year old.



The boy who never smiles for pictures.




Three months old already!



Almost four years old.




Being silly.



Stair-step line-up.



Not quite the pose I was looking for.



This is harder than it looks!




The smiles!!


Real life.


If at first, you don't succeed...


Try, try...


Again! All Eight.
