Wow! She has a fine running style, too, Gramps!
Louis: I thought so, too, Ray. Thank you.
you have been blessed with this beautiful angel Louis...
Annerien truly is a FREE Sprit!

Louis: Thank you peter. She and I have spent some good hours in the outdoors. When we drive all over the farm, she loves to sit on top of the reinforced roof of the truck, with what I refer to as a long distance look. Some would say, she is dreaming with eyes open.
She's beautiful - and what a perfect photo of her!
Louis: Thank you Elizabeth. Fortunately, she takes after her mother.

what a nice girl- een meisje!
Louis: Ja, zeker weten. Wij hebben nu al drie meisjes en een jongetje als kleinkinderen. Noch een jongetje onderweg ongeveer de eerste week van Desember.
She is lovely and reminds me of my daughter, Sarah, at that age Louis. She was always running too.
Louis: And did she become a great athlete? This little one is training herself as athlete - no overeager mom or dad involved. So it hardly requires a prompt to run to me, as part of a shoot.

An absolutely charming image Louis
Louis: Thank you Chris.
I love the look of joy on her face. This 'free spirit' is running straight to Grandpa!
Louis: Kids are lovely, sometimes I think it is a pity that they grow up. Thanks for the comment, Mary.
