Today we celebrated Gavin’s 7th birthday with his friends at the Nefeli Taverna in Aroni. We had a great time and the food was wonderful as always and the cake was scrumptious! The sad part is this is our last weekend here in Crete. Only five days to go before we start our journey to Deutschland and the cold weather. We are definitely not looking forward to saying goodbye to all of our friends here, but are looking forward to seeing our old friends in Germany and getting back involved with our church there. Fortunately, with things like Facebook, you never really have to say goodbye anymore…
Here’s us singing Happy Birthday to Gavin:
Here’s a quick message for mommy from Gavin:
You’ve got to love that giggle!
Here’s a picture of Gavin and Tristan in the backyard on Easter morning. This was their first time in ties, and for some reason, they really enjoyed wearing them. Go figure!
Here’s a little clip of how we put Gavin to bed at night:
Okay, so maybe not really…
In December, when our household goods arrived and were unpacked, Gavin decided it was time to ride his bike without training wheels. It wasn’t dad that taught him (we tried before in Germany, but he wasn’t ready yet), but his big brother Tristan. Nothing like having a big brother to help you out. This is the result:
Gavin had some school pictures taken at his German kindergarten back in June. They really do a good job and allow the siblings to come along, too. Anyways, enjoy!
