Jaap and Mieke arrived

My parents are here, it's wonderful to see them. Their plane landed at 4.00 pm, but customs took a while so we were home at 6.30 pm. Leo was very shy in the beginning, hiding behind Sasha, but Adrian was ready to start talking right away.

Mieke read a book, Kom uit die kraan!. They didn't remember it from last year and didn't quite get the story yet, but they quickly warmed up and dinner was fun with lots of talking.



Nora left for Bulgaria today -- all by herself. She is flying as an unaccompanied minor for the first time, a big step for all of us.

I brought her to the airport today and after check-in we went to the gate together. When we spoke to the service agent there Nora said, when asked, "I'm six... and a half".

She wasn't scared at all, just a little excited. When boarding started, she was the very first person on the plane. When the steward took her, she smiled and ran back at me for one more hug, and then she left.

The flight had a bit of a delay due to weather, so I waited a while at the gate until the flight departed. She'll arrive in Frankfurt in a few hours, and then in Bulgaria around 8.00 am EST tomorrow.


Selling our baby gear

We're cleaning out the basement and so we're selling our old baby gear. It makes us a little nostalgic, but it's also nice to clean up and get more space in the house.

The double stroller went to a family with two kids who are consolidating strollers. One of the high chairs went to a family who already had one of the model but wanted one at their aunt's as well. The "baby cage" went to a lady who'll use it for her small dog. The running stroller we sold to a lady who turned out to be a co-worker.

The car seats are more difficult to sell, though we just sold the oldest one (Nora's green one).
