Although he was achieving good results, he wasn't reaching his full potential because his love for learning had been destroyed & hence his grades were steadily declining.

Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Completely failed by the system, he hated school, was always tired & homework time was a major frustration for both of us. He was severely frustrated & quickly heading to become yet another ADHD statistic.

Horse Camp in Mpumalanga

image_thumbWe have signed our boys up for a homeschoolers’ camp at Mooikrans, Mpumalanga in September. For Clive & myself that’s going to be a whole new learning experience too. Time to let go and let them learn some independence, Life Skills as well as give them the opportunity to make some new friends in the homeschooling circles. As for ourselves, well we may finally be able to celebrate an early 19th wedding anniversary & catch up on that Honeymoon we missed, due to a lack of funds, when we got married.

image_thumb1Their days will be broken up into different activities, weather permitting starting with morning chores of feeding the various animals & fetching the horses, praise & worship, an outride in the rolling hills of Mooikrans or lessons in the arena, Kleilat-gooi, target shooting, woodwork, obstacle course and various other games and activities to make the week fun & adventurous! Sounds like it is going to be so much fun!

Only time will tell what impact this will have on their lives.

We shall wait & see… Feedback will follow….
