Lots of happenings around here. In early March, we moved from #25 to #15. It's a wonderfully bright and airy house, with enough space for everybody, and Peter's office, as well.

We also have a very charming front yard. Here's the banyan tree at sunset (if you could walk up to the little wall behind it, you'd look 25 feet straight down to the alley below):

This is what it must be like to be 3:

Little miss happy and little miss calm on the new couch we had made:

Jonas is so amazing with Sadie!

Jonas and Sadie love each other

The kids' school had a sports day, where Jonas ran in the relay for his class. He comes by it honestly.

Ada had a ballet recital. Here she is waiting to go on. This is all the audience saw of her, too, because she refused to dance and only wanted to look at me backstage the whole time!

Sadie has a neck ring that she got as a gift. These things are kind of popular here...it's kind of neat.

Sadie is already turning 7 months old this week! She's been sitting up for a good month now. I like to call this "puppy dog phase":

Sadie, 6 months, puppy-dog phase

She's such a dear!

There are lots more pictures of Sadie, as well as some shots of our weekend at Camp Taiwan at Flickr - just click on any of the pictures above to go to my page there.

Here's Jonas on the zip wire at Camp Taiwan - it took him 2 days to work up the nerve, but when he finally wanted to, he REALLY wanted to! This is his 3rd time:

And here it is, your moment of zen. Welcome to life as a student in Taiwan! These are the hired 'sports' coordinators for the kids' sports day.
