BIG week for one little girl...


yep. this is her. my girl. my genes. obviously her dad's charm AND genes as he also caught a buckload of fish this weekend. AND its her birthday on wednesday. and i just want to add... this was her 3rd fish and NOT the biggest one. we went out on Francois and Maralien's boat and i didnt want to take my NIKON baby with me, so i didnt snap the second and biggest fish. she threw in herself and caught the fish ALL BY HERSELF. man, i am so proud. i was telling her what an adventure her life has been this year.
1. she learned to snow ski
2. she is learning horseback riding
3. she learned to fish
4. next weekend she will learn to water ski.
and she is only turning 9. what a life!! thanks to Matyn for the letter on the blog! and WHOOOHOOO to boetie for getting that CANON. only shame its not a NIKON. i am looking for a lense for you. Barbara emailed me. i have a sigma 70-300mm f4-5.6 DG makro. have a GREAT week!
love

Darling Tia

Ons wens jou die wonderlikste dag ooit. Dit voel soos nou die dag dat ek en Boetie daar in Tsintswalo aangekom het om jou vir die eerste keer te sien. Jou Ma en Pa het gestraal van trots. En as ek terug kyk het hulle die volste reg gehad om so trots te wees want jy het toe 'n wonderlike persoon geword. Jy is 'n fabulous sussie vir Kirstin en Jana en 'n groot treat vir jou ouers.

Bly so wonderlik soos wat jy is.

Baie liefde, soentjies en drukkies
Boetie en Babs.


Wilna,

Soos jy sal agterkom het ek eit eindelik by jy blog uitgekom. Ons server is geblok vir blogs en lyk vir my ek het toevallig die dag gekies wat die server se "guard down is". Baie dankie vir die moeite op die lens. Merian land more en ek kannie meer wag nie(in the words of the classic "Pretty Woman" I am so excited it is "like the pirates of Penzance". Ek sal kort-kort weer loer, hopefully die bug in die firewall mutates and regenerates en laat my toe om gereeld te kyk. Ek is van vandag af op verlof tot die 14de Aug.

Baie liefde
Babs
