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.

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.

Countdown to Horse Camp

This has been a fairly quiet week for us. After last week’s rushing around every day it has been a welcome break to just stay at home, enjoy each other and have fun around the house. Of course mommy got a little injured during the pillow fight and wrestling match.
Pillow Fight & Wrestle Mania
Misha hijacked my Galaxy Note to play some learning games and Jesse used as my Galaxy Tablet to attend his online Alpha Omega Academy lessons.

On Thursday we fetched a friend to join Misha at his technology lesson in Weltevreden Park. Unfortunately these have been discontinued for the rest of the year, much to Misha’s disappointment.
Technology co-op
This morning Gerhard and Keanan joined the boys as they re-started their guitar lessons. Having friends to join them seems to have made a major difference to their motivation to continue. This time even Misha was quite eager to continue guitar lessons again. After one and half hours their aching fingers forced them to stop to take a break and have some fun instead.

Elizabe & Jacques stopped by later for some fun and games with the boys whilst the moms met for a coffee break.
Game Time
On Sunday morning we’re heading off to Mooikrans Equus to drop the boys for their long awaited horse camp. This should provide a highly appreciated break for me and hopefully also some time to get to some of that backlog admin for which the time continues to elude me.
