John, Debbie and their five beautiful children live in Mozambique for six weeks and then they return to their home in the Drakensberg for a six week break. Until recently John's leave cycle and Grant's overlapped so we could see them in SA. But in September we were just a week out and we missed seeing them. So you can imagine how thrilled we were to receive photos of the whole family on my cell phone this afternoon.
John tells me that Eryn and Joshua have graduated to the next Std 3 and Std 1 respectively; Bethany, who's four and three- year-old Elijah are following a step-by-step course on reading. All four the older children can read. There are no i-pads, e-books, electronic games, television or cell phones for these children. They're beautiful, well-behaved, (I'm the Gran, right! So I'm biased, right!), highly intelligent and very healthy outdoorsy children.
Joshua, Eryn, Israel, Bethany and Elijah
While the his siblings learn and play, one year old Israel - now walking - is exploring and learning in his own way.
He is just like his daddy!
What a cutey!
Debbie, wonderful mother to our grandchildren and support to John

As if I wasn't spoiled enough, at the same time, our daughter-in-law Amanda (in Marquard, South Africa) sent me photos of Joel and Abby.
Joel, 3 3/4 years, and Abby who's a two and a half. Aren't they poppets? (Photo: Amanda Hedges)
