Hi there

Have a butchers at this photo and see if you can work out who or what it is…

Who is it.jpg

Send us a reply with your ideas. The first correct answer will receive a ‘Wycliffe Benin’ t-shirt!!!

Now other info…

On the way back from Azove, we stopped off in Possotome, on the banks of Lake Aheme. First time we’d been and it was very pleasant. However, we took a slightly wrong turn near the village and ended up wending our way down this road:

There’s a sort of hotel/mini-Butlins there (chalets & restaurant, but definitely no monorail!!!) and the whole place looks out over the lake and has a ‘beach’ (of sand which was clearly delivered there!) Here’s Micah on said plage:

To try and keep/get fit, Rob has taken up tennis, which he is enjoying (in spite of the heat!) Here are a couple of shots of him in ‘full swing’:

Other news…

Mads has been off school the last couple of days, with a wheezy chest and coughing. She went to the doctor’s today and she put her on a nebulizer for 20 minutes, which seems to have done her the power of good.

Lois is busy organizing the school Summer Fayre, which takes place in a couple of weeks.

Micah goes round to play with his Dutch friend, Marijn, at least a couple of evenings a week, which he really enjoys (and they are both as talkative as each other, which is good too!)

Ruth is still enjoying ballet. On Monday, we had an SIL get-together, where an Irish short-termer did some Irish dancing. Ruth was so interested that the girl concerned lent Ruth the shoes for a couple of days (although they were a tad big for her, she had fun making a lot of noise with them!)

Thanks for visiting. I’ve added a couple of photos to the Azove info below too.

Thanks for all the comments we’ve received – they are much appreciated.

Hi Rob.

I think the picture is your face when you discovered you couldn’t put photos onto the website!

Cheers, Reggie

I think it’s a moth trying very hard to look like a gorilla!
