Akassia in Marsa Alam, Egypt

Snorkeling in the Red Sea

The Red Sea was absolutely magnificent! It was such a fabulous experience to be able to see the beautiful, colorful fish and coral reef. Cameron and Caleb 'caught the bug' but Sydney had a fear of going in that deep of water in the sea. To make a very long story short as well as Blake talking her through her fears, she literally overcame this fear and actually went snorkeling the last day. She fell in love with snorkeling. We're so proud of her!

King Tut...

King Tut......They crack us up! The guy in the picture with Sydney seriously asked how many camels we wanted for her...every time we saw him - which was often!

Out and About in Egypt

The kids had a ball playing beach volleyball. After watching the Olympics this summer, they have a new interest in the sport! We had so much fun swimming. By the end of every day, we all crashed!

First Day of School - 2008

Cameron and Sydney started back to school on August 25. This is the first year in 4 years that the kids haven't changed schools....and NO, Cameron is not shorter than Sydney (he's just on a step below her). They are attending a Department of Defense school (DoDDs) school since we luckily live near an American Military base.

Caleb, on the other hand, started yesterday, September 15 back at his Italian Elementare in second grade. The great thing with his school is that his teachers follow them from 1st grade every year until 5th. He's also with the same kids every year. He has wonderful teachers who take him under their wing and shower him with kisses every morning - who wouldn't love that ?!?
