A busy week

Well, the week seems have flown by again and it has been a busy one. The weather has warmed up significantly and summer seems to be here! The children have all been swimming and enjoying the pool.
Last Sunday evening we had the pleasure of going to the opening of the Western Cape Doctors Art Group Annual Exhibition. The venue was jam packed it wasn't too easy to view the art with so many people there. My dad had some of his new art on exhibition and I loved the one of some elephants and a baobab. It was great to see him too. I hope to get back to view the art properly tomorrow before the exhibition is over.
Monday saw J and I at a meeting with the pillar mom for Oikos. I had been feeling apprehensive about the last 4 years of high school, but came away feeling totally refreshed and assured that it is just another step in the journey we began all those years ago, when he was just 3 years old and we made the decision to educate him at home. I believe that the years to come will be exciting as he enters his young adult studies. It seems that he was just learning to read and write the other day.....the time flys!
Tuesday I took the children to see the 3D version of "A Christmas Carol". Oma joined us and we had plenty of fun. The movie was rather scary but the children knew the story as we had read it last year. J thoroughly enjoyed the movie but the younger two were a little scared. Z said "mom, this is a thriller for kids!"
In the evening, a long time friend and I went out for a long overdue dinner together. It was lovely to catch up with this special friend.
Wednesday we celebrated a good friends birthday with a fantastic braai . Last night we continued celebrating her birthday with a sunset picnic at Kirstenbosh and the Chris De Burgh concert. It was a truly amazing evening with not a breath of wind. The lawns were packed with people enjoying their picnics and the sounds of this talented artist.

He sang a mix of old and new songs and really entertained the crowds. When he sang "Lady in Red" he came off the stage and moved about among the crowd. It was a magnificent evening!

On the school side, we made some good progress with our Zoology and we are getting ready to wrap up our studies for the year. We hope to be done in two weeks time. I am really looking forward to the break.
