Mutaleni & her girls



BBQ at the daycare!

The children's daycare had their annual summer BBQ - loads of fun for little people & big people alike. Naomi got her face painted like a butterfly, there was a jumping castle, loads of food and live music!










Watch the parents, teachers & children dance together!
What a great party!

Day at the beach

Naomi, Mila & Mutaleni discovered Ijburg beach a few weeks ago & spent the day there with Bregje & Tristan and Ebisse & Sonali.

Holiday in France

We enjoyed seven gorgeous days at the beginning of August in the south west of France vacationing with family & friends at La Blanche, the vacation house of Valerie & Ulrich's family. Ramin, Cathelijne, Norah & Kian were there as were Marc, Nancy & Guilia as well as Elena, Nicolas & Arthur - Ulrich and Valerie's children. Here are some snap shots of the house, the food, the swimming pool, our adventures... and our wonderful family & friends!

Mutaleni acts in dramatic short film *CLICK HERE*


Without words, we’re left to consider whether love and attraction can break through the impasse of human intolerance.

******************************************************************************************
Directed by young Dutch filmmaker Bram Schouw, IMPASSE is part of a series of short films inspired by the United Nations 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It has been shown at film festivals in Paris, New York, Amsterdam and Istanbul.

Family time

Finally... a picture of the four of us on the couch.

Mama looking understandably tired... or is it just that she's heard this story a million times? Naomi never gets enough of her favourite books! So good to all be together in the same place doing the same thing at the end of the day... eating at the dining table, reading on the couch, dancing in the living room or just laying in bed. We belong together.

She's here... Mila Nadimi born 25 May 2009!

Our beautiful daughter, Mila Philipine Nadimi, was born on Monday 25th of May at 5.13am. We are very thankful for her safe delivery, in good health & good spirits - born on her Ouma Sustjie's birthday! Mila has been given Ouma Sustjie's mother's name as a second name as her great grandmother had four children born on this same auspicious day.

Naomi is delighted by the presence of her little sister, as are the entire Nadimi, Mbumba, Oudshoorn, Van Wyk, Wouters, Wolters, Tjitendero & Lie families.

Mother and baby are doing well, and along with Papa, Ouma and big sister Naomi, enjoying the sweet attention of cards, flowers and messages streaming in. We look forward to your visits after our first weeks of rest.
