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.

Birthday Celebrations

578474_10151672778054639_2096865480_nWell, this has been one hectic week with birthday celebrations. We started on Monday with Misha’s friend Damian having a birthday. This meant a drop off at Northgate in the afternoon for some bumper cars & then a sleep over.

We also needed to do our final arrangements for Misha’s birthday on Wednesday and his party on Saturday.

2013_0915_122442Unfortunately dad wasn’t able to take time off work on Misha’s birthday but he did manage to get the day before. We took this time to have some lunch at the Spur & watch a movie as our special birthday family time together.

2013_0919_095414We were rather fortunate that there was a homeschoolers’ trip scheduled for Thursday, which also happened to be Misha’s birthday. This had been a very short notice arrangement & since the entry fees were reduced so much for the group I figured it might be a good idea to take the boys so they could celebrate Misha’s birthday with some fun & rides. We got to Gold Reef by 9am, spent the day wandering around & visiting with friends & finally left again at 5pm.

Friday was rather quiet. I had a few errands after which we spent the rest of the day chillaxing in anticipation of the big birthday party on Saturday.

2013_0921_120050Misha’s birthday party started with a trip to Brightwater Commons for 3 hours of skating at the Boogaloos Skate Park. It was rather cold when we got there but that didn’t seem to deter these little ones from having fun in what little sun was shining. Even though we had a few falls, fortunately there were no injuries & the boys had a great time whilst Ouboet & his friends roamed around the centre. Unfortunately Dad wasn’t able to join since the cake needed fetching because my sister who was meant to bring it fell ill.

2013_0921_131349After the skate park we headed back home where Dad & Oma awaited with Misha’s lovely birthday cake. The kids had hot dogs for lunch followed by cake, presents & party packs. 2013_0921_133413They spent the rest of the day playing games inside & outside whilst the rest of us relaxed.

All in all it has been a very eventful week & for the first time ever all but the Bakugan decorations of the birthday cake were gone by night fall.
