Eowyn, Mummy and The-Tree-She-Fell-Out-Of, just minutes before...
Daddy, Eowyn and a very brave smile, in XRAY...
Lovely friends bringing cheer the next day (Adys 4 without significant sleep for 33 hours at this point!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR UNCLE SAM! G'DAY BRO! WE HEART YOU!

Eowyn chose a blue cast for her poor dear broken right arm - she is waving her castt for you, even as we speak, Samwise!

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY DEAR REUBEN!!!!!!

I AM A US CITIZEN!

A very special element of the proceedings was Gene Tagaban from the First Nations officially welcoming us. Here he is doing a Raven Dance, after telling the story of how Hawk went to fetch the firy spirit for Raven, and carrying it bent her beak, and Raven breathed the spirit into the mountains and the trees and each human being - it was a beautiful story. I was touched deeply by all the expressions of welcome, and especially by dear family and friends being present in the hot sun at my oath ceremony!

Summertime, and the livin' is easy...

Well, not sooo easy - I just had one of my 'I can't handle it anymore' dramatic meltdowns, which are a bit embarassing 5 minutes afterwards. It was just over Bens having accidentally deleted the blog entry I was about to publish for Anita's birthday, and Eowyn having just cut a hole in my down comforter (which she is now sewing up...)
It's very hot, and the girls have a lemonade stand set up out the front. Eowyn decided 10 cents a cup would be perfect. However it's so hot (relatively speaking - we've been in jumpers and even coats and had the heat on) there's not a soul around. No customers. Eowyn very kindly said that she wanted the proceeds of her sales to go towards our tickets to Australia! Bless her heart.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ANITA! WE LOVE YOU!

'Twas so wonderful talking today! We are all very glad you are part of our family, and we wish you a wonderful year of being 36, such a fun age! Love M, B, E & C!!
