Dakota
My first “work” day... I must say the kids are really well behaved. Let me try to give a short introduction to the family. I'll start with the children: Dakota, aka (Da)Kota-Boo, a four year old little chatterbox, is very lively, at times he is also the little dreamer. He has started inventing his own language, which is full of strange sounds. He loves to invent his own games and tends to make up and change the rules as he goes along. Shasta, aka Shasta-Daisy, is the two year old little princess. Baby-badpak (baby-swimsuit, a baby that is attired in a swimsuit) almost never leaves her side. The parents both work in the computer industry; Anneloes is a user interface analyst and works from her home office and Vance is a recruiter and  a volunteer fireman next to his job.
Shasta!

Since the day was beautiful we spent most of it in the backyard, which I must say is huge. At the far end of the backyard the kids have a little play set. The play set has three swings; a yellow baby swing and a red and a blue swing. The baby swing is certainly the big favourite. Whenever the baby swing is occupied by Dakota, Shasta swings on one of the other swings and baby-badpak must be swung on the remaining swing. Next to the swings there is a little playhouse which is about 1,5 meters above the ground. To get in the little playhouse one can take a ladder but there is also a little “climbing” wall. To get down one can go the same way as up or take the slide. The downside of the kids using the slide is that if you touch them within a few minutes after they had gone down, you get a small electric shock.
In the evening Anneloes, the kids and I drove to Walmart. I was the one that drove, I must say that my driving was quite horrible. My only excuses are; that I haven't driven a car for  the past several months and even then my driving wasn't too great. Also the fact that it was a car that I had never driven before didn't help that much.
