Even more pictures!

Watch out! Baby with a racket!!

Auntie Kathy and Aidan blowing bubbles:

Uncle Dean showing Kirsi the snow geese. Can you tell Kirsi loves Uncle Dean?

Feeding the geese with Auntie and Uncle. The geese were well behaved that day!

Aidan checking out the Canada goose. I'm sure he's wondering what the heck that thing is!

Aidan is walking! These are the first pictures I got of him walking, though he'd been doing it for a few days.

I had to get a picture of Kirsi and her first Canada goose:

We went to Candycane Park in Regina one day with Auntie Kristin. That was a stroll down memory lane. I hadn't been there since I was a kid and we met up with Clay, Jackie, Kim, Uncle Dennis and Auntie Karen. The kids had lots of fun there!

Checking cows up in the hills. I'd say that was one of Kirsi's favourite things to do on the farm. Aidan loved seeing them too, but he was a little nervous if they got too close to the truck.

We had a Miller BBQ out at the farm on August 2nd. A lot of the Miller crew showed up, which was great, because I hadn't seen some of them in a long time. It was great to visit with everyone again.

Kim looked after Aidan for a while. He loved her so much!

Grampa Neil, the host. :)

Aidan's first haircut on August 2nd.

We celebrated Teagan's first birthday early so that we could celebrate with her. This is the kitty cat cake I made for her:

Monkey attack, Maid & hired help, Food, and Day 1 in the Books

The doorbell rang this morning and a very shy, humble young man in his 20s introduced himself as Vineet. Vineet is our dhobi.

Every Monday and Thursday morning, we leave our laundry outside our door. Vineet takes and washes, irons, and folds the laundry and returns it to us by the end of the day.

Kirsi, Aidan, and I are having him do our laundry. Dana is doing her own. This service costs us $70 CDN/month.

For all of the sweating that we're going to do here, we feel it's worth it.

This afternoon, we met Sujata, who will be our maid. We had phoned her months ago while still living in Canada and arranged to hire her when we arrived in New Delhi.

She seems very nice and the family took to her immediately. She has worked for AES staff before so she knows the ins and outs of campus life.

Her main duties will be cooking and cleaning. She took cooking classes in Vietnamese, Thai, and Mediterranean cooking. She, of course, can cook Indian food as well. We gave her some rupe…

A Day of Firsts at an International School - Geckos, monkeys, and humidity oh my!

We arrived in New Delhi late last night to a warm welcome from the admin and support team from the American Embassy School New Delhi. It was nice meeting the people that were helping us get here in person. They've been very efficient and helpful in navigating the sea of paperwork of applications and visas.

Jet lag had me up at 4:00 in the morning and I immediately checked out the Hindi Devotional playlist on Google Music. I'm really digging the mellow, groove. Click on the link, turn up the music, and keep reading. Aidan is really digging the music, as well.

So far, it's been a day+ of firsts.

Kirsi and Aidan's first long international flight as independent children. They did a great job of navigating all of the steps involved in international travel and are pros now.Our new apartment is really nice - a video tour and pictures to come. Kirsi "loves our apartment, it's awesome."A gecko on the balcony at 1:30 in the morning sent the kids screaming to the sa…

Lodi Gardens & Kirsi's Soccer

Here is what our Saturday has looked like so far: Dana and Aidan Dana and Aidan went with the school group named HOPE at Lodi Gardens. There, they worked with the rest of the staff and students to offer activities to students from a local school. It's an amazing program.
Aidan said that it was "really awesome" to be able to work with the students and that Lodi Gardens was beautiful. 
Dana came away with some amazing photos.
