The top 4 in J's division.
The bronze medal.
We were very proud of their accomplishments in their first competition and they were taken out for dinner by their Ouma and Oupa to celebrate their success.
We enjoyed the loaves fresh out of the oven with lashings of strawberry jam and cheese.....delicious! We will certainly be baking our own at home. The "friend up on the hill" ,as our new friend called her, came down to the village to hand deliver some honey for us. What a treat to buy eucalyptus and orange blossom honey for R20 a jar! An interesting and fun filled day was had by all.
The proud baker!
In the afternoon , we headed off to meet friends. As we drove past Fish Hoek, the children noticed some fishing boats in the bay and at the beach. They were curious to see if there had been a catch. One quick call to our friends, and they came to meet us on the beach.
The children were fascinated as they watched the nets being pulled in, teeming with fish! What a catch! There were hundreds of Yellow Tail ! There was great excitement as the fishermen loaded them into the back of a bakkie for the market. Some were sold right there on the beach. I was tempted to buy one but could not face gutting and cleaning it
The children were very brave about exploring the fish...looking at the gills and touching the eyes and feeling the scales. They enjoyed the hands on experience. The girls also found a huge jellyfish which they decided needed to be rescued. It was carried back into the sea amid squeals and laughter! We spent a further hour on the beach and the children made the most of the warm day and calm , cool waters.
Operation Jellyfish Rescue.
I was spoiled with a beautiful bunch of flowers when Eric came home and take out pizza for dinner, a rare treat!
Our two cats have decided to drape themselves lazily over a poof . The days have been very warm and they laze there, most days, all day!Please visit Peggys blog at at http://thesimplewomansdaybook.blogspot.com/
The children created these decorations for their cupcakes.

The happy faces tell all! They had a great time!
Zak loved all this "hands on , messy fun"
