Life on a trot. Yes, that's about what's happening in our part of the world. Work is keeping me extremely busy, life at home and the school has been hectic. Leaving blogging (and reading) just about the last item on my to do list.
But we are all doing fine - I am also extremely happy that this term is ending on Friday. Mock ballet exam is done, first Voortrekker camp is done, yearly Ophthalmologist appointment is done (new glasses being made as we speak), hockey season is something of the past and dress rehearsal for the revue done.
Of course, we have a BIG event next week - a certain awesome twosome are turning 6. Gosh 6! Wow. And as they have their birthday in the school holidays we are taking cupcakes for the kids to decorate themselves at school tomorrow and we will only have a party after the school re opens and when Ouma is visiting from PE. But the boys are ok with it - I think they are big enough to see the sense in it. No doubt we will have to repeat it a 100 times in the next 3/4 weeks until the party, but so be it.
It's been a good term academically for the kids. The Princess is continuing being a good student, Mr C surprised us by learning to read in grade 0 (it does sometimes happen that they just "grasp" it themselves without actively being taught - he is not the only one in the class) and Mr L has made great progress and is on his way to grade 0 at our school. I do not think I have mentioned it before but we got the formal ADHD diagnosis a while ago and although he is not on meds yet (to follow soon) our new OT has concentrated on this and he is growing in leaps. I am sure that the horse riding therapy has a big part to pay in it too.
I am still keeping up with Project Life- 2 weeks ago I was behind but managed to catch up about 4 weeks in one weekend. I am way behind in posting the layouts though but if you are interested there may be some you have not seen yet.
Hope you are all doing well. I will pop in soon.
