After yesterday's pity party...

A bit of sunshine from last weekend. We put up the hammock between the trees in the garden as I have seen how well Little man L is stimulated by anything that swings. A lot of SID kids enjoy swinging and it calms them. It proved to be a huge hit with all 3 the kids who had so much fun on it.


Later on they brought out their camping chairs and had fun "camping out" in the garden. When Hunter loaded the bakkie (Ute) to take away the garden refuse they all climbed in and were imagining seeing rhinos and cheetahs in the game reserve. I love it that my kids are growing up sharing this love of ours - nature and the outdoors, be it just in our own garden.

Thanks again for the outpouring of love and support.  We appreciate every prayer and thought. Lots of unicorns and rainbows and bubbles here today.

  4. I've put 2 swings up for J, one normal one with a seat and another over the dam with just a log that requires balance and tight holding on. He LOVES it and spends hours (when I allow it) playing and having fun.

  7. Hammocks are the business!!! We had one in our old lapa and many afternoon was spent chilling in it with a glass of wine and a good book. I'm glad to hear your children have an appreciation for them too :)
