Our New (Temporary!) Home!

We leave the U.S. on July 30th, bound first for London and then it's onto Singapore, our new (temporary) home for about 18 months. Here are some pictures of our new apartment block, yes it's back to apartment living for a while (which I think Dom is secretly pleased about since he won't have to cut the lawns for a while..!). Millie will be attending the Canadian International School while Evie is at the Learning Ladder, the sister school to the CIS.

The playground, where I'm sure we'll be spending a good amount of time.

The swimming pool, where I hope to spend even more time!

The outside of the apartment block...not so very attractive, it's much nicer on the inside.

Nanny & Grandad Day Visit June 2009

Nanny and Grandad Day came to visit us all in June. We had a lovely time, despite the weather which was unusually wet for June. During the two days of sun we had we ventured out to Stone Zoo so that Millie and Evie could show Nan and Grandad Bubba and Smokey, the new black bear exhibit. During the not so wet days Grandad refinished our deck (thank you Dad!) and Nanny took care of Millie after her operation (thank you Mum!).

Millie's Ballet Recital Take 2

Despite Millie just having had her tonsils and adenoids removed a week earlier, on June 22nd, 2009 Millie had another ballet recital, this time with the class she takes at school, Happy Feet. It was a great show which saw all the children demonstrate a talent, Millie's was performing a cartwheel, which she did expertly!

Here's Millie all ready to perform.

Post-performance, Millie, Olivia, Lily, Paige and the rest of the team collect their trophies and their certificates. Then it was a quick snack of oreo's and juice then home to bed!
