This is My Karanambu...

 I was born here…this is not my Village,
 but this is my Karanambu.
I have worked here for 34 years...
this is my Karanambu.
I have been working here since 1956.
This is my Karanambu too.
I am still small, I watch my Mom 
preparing for the guests to come.
This is my Karanambu too.
I learned our birds so that 
I could share them with our guests.
This is my Karanambu.
The Giant Anteaters are wild, but I introduce them to our guests.
This is my Karanambu too.
 From the time I was small I helped my Mommy with the laundry.
This is my Karanambu too.
 I was born here too...
And this is my Karanambu!
Since the early 1930s, Karanambu has been so much to so many.  

All of us here want to make it
your Karanambu too!

We're Back!

The first thing was to go to Kwaimatta and visit our friends and staff who had been on leave during the rainy season! We had all been following the birth of the babies.  Shannon was due to deliver our new Grandson Ryan on the same day that Yonette was due to deliver her baby...July 2nd.
Ryan Charles Cagna 
born on June 22nd, 2012
Salvador's 60th birthday!
Seon Roberts born on July 10th, 2012
 Yonette's Birthday!!

Ryan's big brother Jacob started Kindergarten!
Seon's big brother Dixter started Nursery School
 And Seraj started 3rd Grade!!!
Visiting with Dix and Seon's Grandma Karen, 
sure made us miss our boys!
But as Salvador always reminds me...
"It's the BIG PICTURE!"
So it was back to work!
and getting ready for the new season!
