On 27th March, 2009, Eryn and Joshua were staying with gran while their mum and dad went to the hospital in Bethlehem. Their baby sister was due to arrive that day and as Eryn celebrated her 6th birthday at the Pre-primary School in Marquard, little Bethany Grace Hedges made her welcome appearance in the world.
Bethany is the cutest and prettiest little girl in the whole world. Typical of the third child in a family, Bethany has an answer for almost everything and now as the older sister of her two younger brothers, Bethany can hold a conversation (and win any argument) with an of her siblings or any one of us adults.
Eryn, our first grandchild, a granddaughter, is eleven years old today
Bethany, five years old today and as cute as a button
The last time we saw Debbie and the children was at the end of January this year. We're looking forward to seeing them again when we go out on leave to South Africa again in April.
Granddad with his pride and joy: Joshua (almost seven); Elijah (almost three); Eryn (11 today) holding Israel (almost two) and Bethany (five today)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERYN AND BETHANY
