So have you had enough of Remi blowing out candles? Oh the things that amuse me! I'm nearly all better; have had a very busy week with Catherine, our live in maid starting, getting back into doing my (non-paid, non-official) teaching, and trying to readjust to the heat and the hustle and bustle of life in Singapore.
But before I let the trip slide into the past, I have to revisit some of my favourite photos and memories. For you see, after 17 years of since we left our home state, I totally fell in love with it again.
On the first day we were in Tassie, Matt's parents drove us around...down to Richmond (to Australia's oldest bridge -which was the same age as our house in Connecticut, the old goal, maze, meat pies at the bakery) and then on to Kit's request which was to swim at a beach. First we went to this beach which was at extremely low tide, and while it made for gorgeous pictures, it was not quite what Kit had in mind for a swim....
Matt and I have often talked about how we think that part of the reason we fell in love with Vermont was how it reminded us of Tasmania. And where Matt's brother and his family live is just gorgeous...bush and farmland and definitely something like Vermont.

And for me, a highlight was getting to celebrate my grandmother's 86th birthday with my family.
