The Adventures of Tanjiro & Uschi-Swirl
We have had the pleasure of meeting many, many new people [19,700 "unique visitors" as of today (thanks to all of you for visiting!!)], from all over the world. We have learned many things about; digital photography, holiday history, the boys, and each other. Lesley has been motivated to work on her painting skills and is studying Chinese (in the hopes of a 2008 Olympics trip), I have "finished" up some things around the house, we have installed an internet connection at home, and we have even purchased and are developing our own web-domain,... This entire adventure has helped to strengthen and keep our small family active and connected.
Our lives have been transformed since the boys joined us in our little strawbale house. We no longer sleep in (I sleep with ear plugs), Lesley continues to have "spy adventure dreams" but now they involve the boys almost every night, the house is often active with running and "howling," we rush home from work to see the boys, we go outside with them every single day, always with a camera in hand taking pictures. Then when we do come in, it is time for food and an excited wait while the camera is downloaded,... hoping for a few "blog-worthy" shots. We are constantly experiencing new adventures with the boys, as taking out DaBird the 10th day in a row becomes a bit tiring for all involved (well maybe not Tanji). Lesley and I often find ourselves looking back through the blog laughing,... regularly when we are sitting on the couch with the boys right next to us.
Basically, Tanjiro and Uschi-Swirl have taken over our lives and we are having a ball !!!
