feeling at home

Windhoek, Namibia.
June 2010, winter.

day = 24 degrees Celsius
night = 07 degrees Celsius

We are so happy to be here in this beautiful country, surrounded by family & old friends. We have been here a little over a week now and feel very blessed. Here are a few photographs taken at Ouma & Oupa's house (Oma & Opa in Afrikaans) as well as photos of our gorgeous temporary home until we move into our own place next month. Also browse further down for some more pics of our last weeks in NL... speaking of which, World Cup fever has taken over so excuse us for taking so long to blog. Hup Holland hup!

Lots of love R,M,n&m

The sun is shining...

...but it's still a little too cold to swim.

Goodbye Netherlands!

Our last weeks in The Netherlands have been busy, emotional and yet filled with many wonderful moments with friends and family. It is a small miracle that we were able to see and say farewell to so many friends during these hectic weeks!
Some highlights:

Our last night in The Netherlands was spent in Nijmegen at Celine & Tim's house...

Da dag Tettertjes...
On Naomi & Mila's last day at the creche we had a "borrel" with all the teachers, parents and children. It was a lot fun yet bittersweet... we are still enjoying the many toys, books, bags, hair bands and cards we received. THANK YOU TETTERTJES, WE LOVE YOU!!!

Family aan zee
We spent a whole week in two big houses together with the entire Nadimi Wouters family at Noordwijk aan Zee... we will miss the North Sea, especially Naomi!

Oma Adri and the grandkids.

Famke, Joanne, Roya & Sietse went surfing!

Mutaleni squeezed in some good summer reading.
