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.

Sweet 16


This was a fairly unproductive week where schoolwork was concerned. Thursday was filled with a whole day of science/geography by Barry from Education Support. Apart from that, we were making arrangements for Jesse’s 16th Birthday Party on Friday.2013_0621_091757

Friday was filled with a long awaited, fun filled day at Gold Reef City. We hadn’t been to Gold Reef City since Misha’s last school trip in 2006. In those days he was still to short to go on all the ride. This time though, he wanted to do some of the kiddie rides but was told he was too big.2013_0621_103404 2013_0621_120225

We left Gold Reef City at 15h30 to move the party home for cake, snacks & movies.

On Saturday Jesse spent the day at the Northgate Ice with some friends arena to test out his brand new ice skates.

Sunday was spent at home quietly but with the exception of lunch at the Spur in the afternoon.

I still find it hard to believe that my little boy has turned into such a charming young man.
