Here are some pictures showing what Mason did while at Aunt Janna and Uncle Kerrry's. Mason loves cats so he was seen carrying Attie-Kat around or sitting in the porch petting her
We took his tractor along and he drove that everywhere in between waiting for it to be charged.
He was seen walking around chewing on a ear of corn!
Mason went along to the markets and was right in there helping with the produce...the market in Fulda is by a caboose.
AND.....don't forget the watermelon!!


These are some pictures of Shawn and Mason learning about gathering eggs and bringing them to the house to be cleaned and put into egg cartons. Laura, Evan and Issac sell eggs at the markets when selling produce.

favorite picture!!


On our trip to Janna's it was close to Mom's birthday.. so on

Sunday after meeting we had a yummy dinner ot stroganaff and sweet corn and fresh tomatoes.

Alicia made a very good chocolate cake with dipped strawberries. Mom also spent another day with us at Janna's and I

showed Mom how to play scrabble on the computer.

Neeltje (de Boer) Visser
October 23, 1923 - July 23, 2012
23 oktober 1923 - 23 juli 2012

A few days ago, the sad news arrived via e-mail from my cousin Saskia that her mother, my Aunt Neeltje, passed away in The Netherlands. I have had the opportunity to meet her twice, once in 1995 and again 2010. Neeltje was my father's youngest sibling and the last of Brant and Jetske de Boer children to pass away. Her memories will be forever in my heart.

Een paar dagen geleden, het droevige nieuws kwam via e-mail van mijn nicht Saskia dat haar moeder, mijn tante Neeltje, overleden in Nederland. Ik heb de gelegenheid gehad om haar twee keer, eenmaal in 1995 en opnieuw 2010. Neeltje was mijn vaders jongste broer en de laatste van Brant en Jetske de Boer kinderen om weg te gaan. Haar herinneringen zullen voor altijd in mijn hart.
