Jambo, Astrid!

My daughter is off on her big South African adventure working with big cats at the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre.

While we are not close right now and I'm not getting the exciting blow-by-blow details of how her mission is working out, I am extremely proud of my daughter for venturing out, LITERALLY, into the wild.

This is the kind of thing she was always destined to do, as her spirit has been fiercely independent from birth. I'll never forget how she seemed to be surveying the delivery room moments after being born with a look something along the lines of: "Okaaay... I can handle this."

And the best part of all: her very first word was "kitty"!

Go get 'em, Astrid! Lots of love from Dad.
