1 month already!

The little one!

Family pics

Visiting little holland (Zaanse Schans)

A little bit cheesy, but fun nonetheless


Kaemon's growing up...into a (nose-picking) BOY

Stan Getz in the making...

Buddies hanging out

Not afraid...

A (dubious) tribute to Sister Kathleen, our violin teacher (Jen, Ingrid and myself). I hope she appreciates the fact that we're still playing since it's impossible to appreciate anything else... Warning: turn the sound DOWN. C'mon, it's been 5 years since we've played together and our fingers aren't the nimble ones as when we were 10 year old prodigies scratching out Bach (at least ingrid has the advantage of having perfect pitch!! sorry ingrid, couldn't resist one more dig ;). Now we're just nearly 30/30-somethings scratching out Bach. Anyway it was fun (despite douwe and tom laughing about us going to band camp. Band camp was fun too). The musical equivalent of a not-too photogenic photo: video

Ingrid visited and I had such a good time talking Australian, and meeting the backpacker that led her to go AWOL in Belgium. Jen, she's entering our competition (Denmark vs NL vs Belgium) but she's already lost a point since Vlaams-Dutch sounds much nicer than Dutch!

kaemon meets the big chicken, kaemon loses chicken

Apologies to the vegetarians, a chicken was harmed in the making of this film.
video
Panic ensues when the chicken time is over...methinks he's got a little touch for Drama.

Kaemon's friends Yara and Timo came to visit Nelson!


Vrijgezellendag!

Lieve Marjolein Bride-to-be! Girlfriends are great aren't they? We had a great day on the canals of Utrecht doing some girl-bonding.

little lord N

Time flies when you're having fun! N is a lovely baby- hardly cries, eats and sleeps well- all a baby his age ought to do! he appears to smile just before getting the booby... Kaemon is very interested in him...in short intense bursts of 20 seconds at a time, then it's back to tractors and buses. They like holding hands and giving each other kisses, kaemon calls N 'tractor' & gives nelson little gifts of contraband (my credit card, car keys, all the things he's not allowed).
