August has been one heck of a rush! Here’s a couple of things that have been keeping us busy:
Oliver started his new school on the 1st of August. I was very concerned that he would battle to settle in, but he has been a trouper! We greet the chickens in the morning and off we go. The school is very Afrikaans, which was something I was worried about initially, but I soon realized that Oliver would be fine. Just like Logan was. Pretoria is majority Afrikaans and that is that. Also kids are awesome at adapting to their environment.
Logan attended a karate tournament. It was his first and he was quite nervous. I found the tournament a little disorganized. What bothered me most is that no one really explains to you how things work. Am I just crazy to have expected the Sensei to pick up the microphone and say, hi folks. There is a red flag and a blue. This is how we make our decisions regarding who wins.
Logan got first prize!!
Swimming lessons started again. Loads of fun for Logan. Half an hour of entertaining Oliver, for me.
And all that while house training a puppy (latest addition, Roxy). I must be honest, I cuddle, Kobus house train :) Participating in an online social media course; not getting around to UNISA assignments and battling to get rid of a silly winter flu.
That is hectic! How have you been?
