As you can see from the photos, we haven't strayed far from home. No need to...everything we need is within 3-4 km and the Wx has been clear and warm most days....gets up to 25 in the house and only down to 20 at night. Outside its about 27-8 and down to 10ish. Carla is now doing the "one leg tucked under" crawl and is starting to use the walker that Karen gave us for Ramon. Ramon is getting into EVERYTHING! Mom is trying to keep her sanity, keeping the place clean...found slugs, mouse, fleas (which Ramon seems alergic to the bite) and worst of all, RAmon had a bout of scabies, possibly from an old mattress that had been stored too long. So we now have a maid once a week to keep the vermin at bay. All this is due to the fact that the owners had pretty low standards of cleanliness, it's a rural area with a number of crops in the yard,(inc dogs and chickens until recently) and it's a warmer climate year round; no winter kill. Dad's been working nearly every day since the start of school, but I think this will be my last weekend for a while...till reports in December!
