when conrad saw the first picture of oma, he leaned forward and kissed the screen. (i'm not kidding!) looks like beautiful weather and a fun time for all!
Conrad loved all the pictures of Sophie. :) It was very interesting to see inside their school. You can tell by their faces that they are all pretty pleased!

there was a big wilkin-sized hole at the table this year. you were all missed very much - and the topic of much discussion.

all of those women really do have hats on! amazing. great outfit. it really suits you. i just wish i could have seen your shoes in the picture. i couldn't help laughing over the detailed instructions you were given about what kind of purse to buy. who would have thought it would matter that much?
I am so glad the dinner went well! everything looks like it was mouth-wateringly good. wish I could have shared the leftovers. :)

it must take LOADS of mental and emotional energy to be living in a new culture. i can imagine that you are exhausting yourselves daily just by existing. i remember feeling that way the summer i spent in colombia. at least you have the assurance from you freinds that it will get better. keep your chins up!

i love the echinoderm cake. what a great idea! james is such a cutie. I wish I could be there to squeeze him. I know that conrad would love to be sharing his birthday with james, and would give him a hug and a kiss as well. happy birthday james!!!

one of my favorite parts of living (short term albeit) in a foreign country is going to the grocery store. it is always a mini-adventure. you never know exactly how to weigh and pay for the produce (do they weigh it at the check out, or are you supposed to have it weighed and marked in the produce aisle?) and you can never be totally sure of what you will find in that can or sealed package until you get home and open it. fun, fun. i had to go to the grocery store every day in rome and i had to haul conrad there with me, but i always looked forward to going. do i sound obnoxious? :) my point is that i love the pictures. it is like taking a virtual mini-adventure with all of you.

cheer up. the good folks here in mt. pleasant don't know how to use our new roundabout, and they get to have the steering wheel on the left side of the car!

I couldn't help noticing that all the door knobs are higher up than ours. That will take some getting used to! And I think I remember you saying that Aussies wear lots of black clothing? I would wear dirt-hiding colors too if it took 2 1/2 hours to wash a load of laundry. whew! (kind of discourages using too much water too.) :)
