John has been working on his ABC's, I think he's getting pretty good! Funny thing is he just started singing them one day, we aren't quite sure where he picked it up- maybe from Dora?

A Little Bike Ride

As you may know, John doesn't get a lot of time to practice bike riding. Over last summer he tried a few times, but the driveway at the 'real house' is hilly and he fell over one too many times. He was pretty unsure about trying this tricycle, but with a little coaxing from Mommy he gave it a go. He did pretty well once he figured out the foot-pedal concept!

Oh, Friends...

Over the past few weeks, we have been in Fort Myers Beach tying up a few loose ends (more on that later) We made some new friends about a month ago, at the park! Since then they have become near and dear to our heart. We've even been able to have the boat behind their house which has been a real help! John has had them over to his 'big boat' to play a few times. This has been a real learning experience for John, to say the least! He's learning to share!

John and Aeden fishing- or fighting over the fishing rod...

Myra and John 'cheese!'

John and 'Daddy Aaron' playing trains at Kelton's house- so much fun!

Myra and Aeden are twins who are about 8 months older than John. Kelton is another buddy who just turned 3, it was at his birthday party that we were absorbed by this wonderful group of friends!

Somehow I am often without the camera, but I promise I'll get some pics of the whole group together at some point before we leave!

Funny Face

John catching up on the happenings in his hometown of Nashville this morning on NPR- I don't think he likes the sound of President Palin!

Good thing he is a Kiwi too!

In Limbo...

There are many definitions for the word 'limbo', mostly going back to Catholicism and medieval times. However, there is a widely accepted modern definition- this is what my favorite Wikipedia has to say:
'Differing slightly from the original meaning, in colloquial speech, "limbo" is any status where a person or project is held up, and nothing can be done until another action happens'

This is where we are right now, in the modern definition of Limbo. I'll fill you in on all of the details as we know more- but in the meantime, we've been making the most of the situation. We have great new friends and playmates for John (I'll do another whole post on all of that).

Until next time... Cheers!
