Kaili in Spring

Hello friends! Today I would like to introduce you to another island girlie- not a new friend, but one who has never been featured here on the blog. This is our friend Kaili- she's Indie's little sister, and she's adopted from Nepal! Kaili loves flowers and acting and has a rad sense of style as well as a rad nose piercing.

Kaili is also a twin, just like Maddelynne and Violet! Her twin sister is named Nira, and they are almost identical. I'll be sure to introduce Nira to you all soon!

In other news, spring has finally arrived on the island! And by spring, I mean temperatures have been higher than 30...but we'll take what we can get! Our daredevil friend Cecile was the last one on a snowmobile across the ice bridge this winter, and most of the snow is melted by now. The ferries have started running regularly again, and Venus, Marlee, and I have decided to go across to St. Igance tomorrow after church to get some new clothes.

Meet Marlee!

Hello guys! It's Zaira, and I haven't posted in AGES!! I completely forgot about this blog when school started up again, and Venus and I decided it was high time we get back to you all. This is our new friend Marlee. She showed up with her family in the middle of a snowstorm, in a teeny tiny plane, that being the only way to get to our island when the ice bridge hasn't formed yet and the boats can't get through! She came all the way from New York! Her parents have lived here forever, and she decided to come home for the holidays. Marlee is 15, and she was able to convince her parent to let her finish out the school year here instead of going back to New York!

Marlee also loves fashion- don't you love the glittery gold dress she's wearing in these photos?

Venus, Marlee, and I hiked up the bluff to our favorite little clearing- the snow's all melted now, but at the time it looked like something out of the movie Frozen! Marlee made the perfect Elsa!

I'll be back really, really soon guys! I have so many ideas, and Venus is getting a new camera soon to take some more lovely pictures for you. See you all soon!
