Heather's List

What a good day out!

We left the house at 5:45am and got home at 7:30pm. The big African sky above us was in constant shifting patterns as the clouds thickened and abated, thickened and abated throughout the day. The world below was draped in rich hues of greens and golds. The birds that traveled between flashed with colors too wild and iridescent to emulate.


This family was very happy to duck out of home school and office work to accommodate Bill and Tina's hope to visit the game park :-)

Great list,Heather. Oh how Emily (and all Klein's) dream of going to the game park under such a lovely sky WITH YOU!
