Yay! School holidays started today! I picked the kids up from school today at 11am and already felt a sense of relief.
4 weeks off bliss! No homework in the afternoons, no fetching & carrying to & from school (sometimes 3 or 4 times a day!), no school projects, just some pure fun! = HAPPY MOM!
This weekend is, of course, Easter. We’re at home, a quiet long weekend for us.
Tuesday we’re off to our little place of African heaven… The bushveld.
Hopefully we will see more of these beautiful prehistoric looking creatures…. I just love how this little baby is resting on his mommy’s back!
& this won’t happen again…(feb 2012)
the new, wider floodplain after the floods this summer…
Don’t you just love these faces?
You get the picture?
We’ll be back again after about a week, then we’ll relax at home until it’s my mom-in-law’s 80th birthday.
The whole family (the birthday girl + 5 kids + each of their spouses, + all 10 grandchildren= 21 in total) will be off for 3 days down to Umhlanga in Kwazulu Natal to a beautiful old hotel which was recently revamped …
I cannot wait to take photos of the beautiful lighthouse! (and I have to admit staying in such a gorgeous spot will be sublime!)
So this school holiday, we’ll have a bit of the bush and a bit of the beach – the best of both worlds – I can’t wait!
