It has been such a great time catching up and also meeting new families.
Here are some pics that show a bit of our time here so far.....
Why is it that when I sit to make an update I realize that we haven't been taking very many pics??? ARG. :)
But here goes with what we have and conciser my hand hand slapped so as to take more photos! :)
Gotta love that beautiful green and sky!
And of course the new wild life that frolic literally in our front yard.
The kids are fascinated by horses! (not many around in Ambrym) and have enjoyed feeding and cuddling with these beauties while on our walks.
