Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

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.

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.

Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre

When we visited the Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve in April this year, Misha wasn’t allowed to touch the cheetah at the Animal Crèche due to his being too short & possibly being mistaken for prey by his favourite animal. This had him extremely upset so I decided to add the Cheetah Centre on our list of field trip to-do’s for next year.

However, an opportunity to visit the centre presented itself much faster than I expected . Dad took a day’s leave and we joined a group of homeschoolers at the Ann van Dyk Cheetah Centre today.

Misha was ecstatic about being able to touch his favourite animal at the end of the tour & purchased some cheetah memorabilia for his room.

Afterwards Jesse went home with his friends for an afternoon visit, we dropped Misha at his friend for a sleepover, went for lunch & spent the rest of the day chillaxing home alone.
