Happy Belated Father’s Day…

See i’m once again late with my greetings to all Daddys!
Walter is away in US so we sent kisses over the Messenger – we will also be mailing him a card tomorrow – shhhh…. don’t tell him – actually i don’t think he’ll even log on here to read our blog – hahhaha 😉 so funny when he was the one who started this blog.
Here’s a little poem for all Fathers out there:

The things you taught me I will always know.
How could I not? The roots have sunk so deep:
All lessons of the heart that I will keep
No matter who I am or where I go.
Kids learn from what their parents are, and so
You are my book of life, the thoughts I reap;
Only in your arms I quiet sleep;
Under my words your voice sings soft and slow.
From you I learned the rules of right and wrong
Against which I at times had to rebel,
Though with regret I carry with me still.
How lucky I am to have been loved so well,
Even as I pushed against your will,
Relying on a father fair and strong.


Spring is finally here!!

YES! Spring is finally here! The sun came out today for the whole day & temps reached at least 18 – WOW!! Yippy!!! It was great – i was walking around outside with just a spaghetti top with a light sweater over! So great to be able to take Tobi to the playground without putting 4 layers of clothes on him – just 2 light ones was good for today.
Here’s a photo of Tobi enjoying the sunshine:

i’m a bit sad that the weather forecast is saying that temps will drop with some rain on Tuesday – but it looks to pick up again towards the weekend so that’s good. As long as temps stay above 10, i’m happy.

More about Tobi

It has been a while since our last post – so what’s been up??
Well, we’ve been trying to settle back into our routine here in cold cold Switzerland. Oh,ok it’s now not all that cold cold anymore – just windchill is hard to bear sometimes. Temps are around 7 to 10 so not really warm (to me anyhows). Really wish Spring would hurry & get here! Had lots of housework to catch up on & of cos emails too (even with checking periodically in Singapore didn’t help lower the load too much). & of cos we also had to change classes for Gymboree. & then there is some stuff happening at church too. So we’ve been busy.

Now to Tobi – he… well, he is not 100% – for our christian friends please pray that for a 100% restoration of his health – his little penis is painful – has been for the last 2 weeks – we’ve seen the doc twice already & he says to wait & see cos this sort of thing normally heals itself (a very Swiss doctor type thing to say – they are very much into the body healing itself). It does seem to have improved a little – so we’ll be waiting another week to see how it goes.

Now to more cheerful stuff – here’s a photo of Tobi with one of his “galfriends”:

Naomi is such a little cutie – parents are Swiss & Thai so she got the best of both worlds – don’t you agree?
