hooray for visitors!

I'm late in posting.....I've been sick with bronchitis, yuck...but finally I seem to be improving now that the kids are stating to get sicker.

We were thrilled to finally receive our first family visitors (although we have to admit that they planned the trip before we were even planning on moving here).  Lonnie's Aunt Vicki and Uncle Jerry came and spent a night and morning with us before heading off to more New Zealand adventures.  Maya was immediately drawn to Jerry because he is a man and he read her a book.  She pretty much wouldn't leave him alone the entire time they were with us.   I loved talking with Vicki about her work as a postpartum nurse.  I also especially loved how much Vicki's tone of voice reminded me of Lonnie's dad Lynne.
