Fishing in the Ba'e

Jamie has enjoyed fishing as long as he’s been old enough to hold a pole (at least as far as I’ve been able to determine from the stories he’s told me). A couple weekends ago, armed with a “new” fishing pole that he had gotten from our neighbors, Jamie went fishing in the little river that runs past our Center.

I think that it was mostly just a fun venture for him to get out of the house and have some time to himself, but he did manage to catch something!

This little 6-inch guy even has some “fangs” like a catfish.

(We didn’t eat him, but gave him away to one of our PNG friends.)

the big ONE

Well, I keep thinking I need to be getting back to this blog and Thad’s 1st birthday seems a pretty good occasion. Here's the big ONE-year-old!

You can’t tell from his smile that he now has 4 teeth—two on top and two on bottom. He enjoyed utilizing those teeth to try chocolate cake for the first time!

We invited our neighbors over for supper and cake to help us celebrate!
