Gramma's Birdhouses

How many birdhouses can you find?

Our Gramma loves bhousef3.gif (2382 bytes) - she has them on fence posts, hanging all over the front porch, hiding in plants, she has them everywhere! And now we are hanging out the birdhouses too.

bhouse.gif (1588 bytes)We hope no one is confused about us switching from Fall in New Zealand back to Spring.... but for those of you who don't know - WE'RE GOING BACK TO ALASKA!!! Isn't that exciting???? We really love New Zealand, but Alaska has always been our home and we are ready to go back to the "last frontier" and settle in. We can't wait to see our playhouse again. In the meantime, see what we've been up to....

bhouse4.gif (1597 bytes)Notes from Stasha in May 1998:

I was in a race with 33 other 5 year old girls and came in 18thstarylw.gif (1250 bytes) place. I am so proud of myself because I ran 1/2 mile without stopping. It was lots of fun and we all had a great time together. Right now I am in a read-a-thon to raise funds for our school. I love to read so this should be a piece of cake.

bhousef3.gif (2382 bytes) I will miss New Zealand and all of the wonderful things that it has to offer - playing outside all year long, my friend Jaydin, the best schools, fresh fruits in the backyard, and beautiful beaches. But Gramma & Grampa live right across the road from one of the most beautiful beaches in Ketchikan, "Rotary Beach", and Grampa loves to take us there to play. I can't wait!!!!

Hello.... I'm helping Mummy pack because I am so happy to be going back to Alaska. My Daddy is there right now. He left at the end of April so that he could get everything ready for us. I miss my Daddy very much and can't wait to see him. He is keeping my Elmo safe until I get there. In case you didn't know, I'm a "Daddy's Girl" and proud of it!

bhouse6.gif (1406 bytes)I will miss New Zealand, too, especially my teachers Miss Liz, Miss Rose, and Miss Lea. I will really miss the beach because that is one of my favorite places to go, and playing outside all the time, and all of my friends. I want my Grandma Judy & Grandpa Shirwin to visit usso I can show them our playhouse that we helped Grampa build.

bhouse3.gif (1694 bytes)We hope you enjoyed your visit..... We look forward to June and will update you on all of our travels from New Zealand to Alaska.
