Where has the year gone – it seems to have flown by! We had a great time on our family holiday on the Big Island of Hawaii and would definitely return there again. We were able to enjoy a Luau, beaches, swimming with turtles, tropical fish and snorkeling with dolphins – a real highlight.
We actually ended up having a bonus trip as well. Daniel was playing in a basketball tournament in Las Vegas for the Victoria Prep basketball team so we decided to travel down and see it and experience Las Vegas. We managed to book the flights, car hire and hotel using our air miles and had a good time taking in the sights of the Strip and going to see Lion King and the Blue Man group – very entertaining. Plus we left Vegas with $75 in winnings from the casinos so a little bonus as well.
September saw Daniel moving across to Vancouver to attend Langara College for both education and basketball. We have managed to go across and see some games and they are doing well. They are a young team so if the coach can keep them together for a couple of seasons they could have a good run. Daniel is enjoying playing and has made some good friends. They are travelling to Oregon in the New Year to play some games and he is looking forward to that.
Anja decided to change dance schools this year and is enjoying that. She is doing four different dance styles and has also attended a couple of dance conventions in Vancouver. She always enjoys them as she gets the opportunity to meet and be taught by dancers from the TV show So You Think You Can Dance. Anja also is helping doing choreography with a local drama society and will be in their shows in February.
Mette is still busy with Real Estate and is enjoying it. Se has been doing this for five and a half years now and has met lots of people who we are still friends with.
Darren has been busy landscaping and also growing our www.emigreat.com website. We have now started venturing into New Zealand and Australia as well as Canada and the expansion will continue! We have started doing a newsletter so please remember to sign up for it on our website.
Well Christmas time is now upon us so we would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
