Alpha Four- Their Story So Far...

Sepilok: home of orangutans and Alpha Four

Pip misses his university graduation ceremony so Alpha Four host a ceremony of their own for him.  Congratulations Pip from all of us!

Work begins on the boardwalk

Many hands make light work

One post down, five hundred to go...

Sweat, dirt and smiles

Hiya Stephen, glad to see you looking so well. Looks like a great experience! It's great reading about what you are all getting up to via the blog.

Everyone is fine here. It's school holidays of course, so I am trying to keep Joshua busy! Zachary is sitting up by himself a little bit now and he is starting to try and crawl! You're going to see a massive change in him when you get home. We're going round to your parents at the weekend which will be nice.

Lot's of love

Vicky, Matthew, Joshua and Zachary. xxxx

Everything sounds amazing (except leachy showers!), really glad you're having fun! & also v jealous. Letter on the way to fill you in on all the exciting happenings in cambridge (don't expect too much!). Enjoy your next project & give me another call once you're back again! Will be watching the blog for new updates/photos! LOVE XX

Been following your progress online and it looks like an amazing experience – very jealous!!! Hope your enjoying mate it looks a lot of fun! Just showed the recent pictures of you to your Gran + granddad who both pass on there best wishes – although granddad saw the picture of you with your feet in tub of water/stuff on your face and said tell him to stop ‘monkey-ing around…with those orangutans’ and get back to work’…you know his humor, very witty. I’m currently in Leeds for a bit so seeing everyone which is good but looking forward to seeing you in the USA once you get onto your travels. Take care mate, JP.

I swear I wrote a comment as soon as I saw your face on this blog ages ago!, but it must have not gone through.
Its nice to see you in some photos, and it was sweet of them to throw you a little graduation celebration out there. I can't imagine how dirty you're getting, but if the photos are anything to go by, its pretty bad hehe
They call you Pip in the blog though, is this your new nickname now?
The iPhone is still safe, getting its full usage as Jenny tells you. We are inseparable hehehe. I think I might have to get one myself.
I got onto the Creative media Camp thing you linked to me. It was a fun week, so thanks!

I get my results next week too, I'll let you know how badly I've done when I can.. oh dear..

Other than that, England is boring and rainy, home is home, nothing particularly interesting or out of the blue here.

Hope you're having a ball out there! The count down to my 18th and the day you get back starts now! Not too long left I guess!

Take care Big Bro! :)
From Annie xxx
