Photos of us and our place lately

Jacob in contemplation (and wearing his big brother t-shirt).

Hi.  It was Earth Week at Jacob’s school recently, so he’s been talking about animals, Earth and nature more at home lately. He asked us ‘What will happen if we annoy the Earth?’ to which we replied ‘The Earth isn’t a person, so it can’t feel annoyed’. Jacob responded with ‘Come on, just use your imagination’ – didn’t know how to reply to that!

Below are some of shots of our own goings on with nature and other things around here. Jacob and Dad planted some tomatoes, we’ve kept up with our plants inside and outside of the house and there’s been some beautiful sunrises outside our balcony lately. Check them out below:

Building and light across the field and sunrise.

Our white boulganveias on the balcony.

Our pink boulganveias.

Early morning on a Sunday – dragonfly perched on the end of an orchid on our balcony.

Another gorgeous sunrise across the field.

Sunset on the horizon – from the 50th floor of the Bitexco building, downtown Saigon, stormy night.

Jacob lost his first tooth! He already cashed it in for $2.50 from the tooth fairy. Tooth fairy received a bailout from the U.S. government and now needs to watch how much cash it gives out.

This is a shot of Jacob with his new robot and math sheets and blanket. He was super excited to have robots on the blanket.

Jacob and chess – his new favorite board/card game. Believe it or not, he beat me in the game we played after this shot (and I wasn’t trying to let him win!).

One last sunrise – this is the building across the park from us. The colors were even more brilliant than shown here.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
