Flying "Home"

Next Wednesday I'm flying home to San Diego to see my folks. Both mom and dad aren't doing too well. I had originally planned to fly over in January, which would have suited me better, but things don't always go as planned. It's with lots of trepidation and yes, fear, that I fly over. My son, Carsten is following me over at the same time.

On a nicer note....

I never did post pictures of Tamara's first day of school. Yesterday Regina sent me this one which I definitely want to share with you all!

See that big "cone" Tamara is carrying? All kids get those... either home made or store bought, big or small depending on the parents. It gets filled with lots of goodies, usually sweets and/or school supplies, to "sweeten" up the first day of school and begin of one of life's more serious stages. More pictures can be viewed here (and I just realised, I never got around to commenting them.... I'm really getting sloppy! lol)

And here's a picture of Regina on HER first day of school!

Last night I went bowling with my co-workers. I haven't bowled in over 30 years and it was quite fun! I actually managed a couple of strikes, but generally I did terrible... *shame* But it was FUN!

I'll be busy the next days preparing for my trip. Weather has been fantastic the past days, but thunder storms, etc. are forcasted for the next days.

Keeping in touch!



  1. Hi Westy ~ Oh thankgoodness, I'm glad Carsten will be going along too. I wish you all the best of a smooth flight and safety there and back. Prayers for you and family.....

    I love that jacket you are wearing, and the leggings and shoes are so cute , as is Tamara!
    Awww, what a cutie Regina is too.

    I still have not got my scanner up and running! It's still brand new! Been since last Christmas, lol!

    *hugs* and prayers to you all, ~Sunny
