We are now Grandpa and Grandma!!!

Rhett was born on April 22 at 11:00. Soon after being born he was flown to Sioux Falls SD and admitted into the NICU because of breathing complications. Barb and I left Landfall in Whangarei New Zealand, at Riverside Marina, in the care of dear friends, and flew back to the US. After week or so Rhett went home and we got to enjoy some time with him before flying back to Landfall.

He is less then a week old in this picture

The proud papa

The happy new mom

Mom can’t wait to get home.

Auntie Becky

Grandma is in her glory

He will hate this one when he gets older

See he is excited to get a postcard from Grandpa and Grandma. He is already in a sailing outfit!

It is hard sometimes being so far away.  We miss people so much when we are out here and know we are missing so much.  It is a hard thing to balance.  People is really what life is all about!
