School days and....
Seth actually had a rougher first day. He just could not understand why Gabby was not coming to school with him. It was only after Jason took him with to drop Gabby off that he now understands that Gabby has a new school and that his school is HIS school now. Otherwise the teachers are impressed with his speech development over the festive season. Which makes me much relieved. He has always been a slow talker so i spent the whole christmas holidays pointing at everything and saying its name, as well as having long gibberish conversations (which was actually kind of fun!!!).
I just need to get used to the homework! Is it just South Africa that has kids doing such a lot of homework? If the load is lighter in the US, i think i may be up to immigration, considering that i have 15 plus years of school ahead of me! Nothing like Gabby announcing last night at 7:15pm (bedtime is 7:30pm!!) that he has to make an animal out of circles, to cause panic! I also need to get used to making lunch boxes.
Otherwise the last three days have been good from a rest perspective. I have managed to squeeze in a lot of scrapbooking. I completed my christmas photos and am now onto my East London holiday album. I am half way through and hope to finish by the weekend. I have sorted all the pics, got out paper and am now on a roll. I also am cruising with my cross stitch. Please lord, might the end be in sight? I did a chunk yesterday while finally watching Twilight the movie. I know that i am behind the entire universe but it did not really appear to be my kind of thing. AND after watching it i can safely say that it is not. Sure the Wolf boy was nice eye candy (although i felt like a criminal! Is that boy even 21???) but after that the emo vampire thing did nothing for me. I love horror movies but like the mean cool vampires! The kind that have attitude! Give me Blade any day!
Today i have another quiet day although my brother is coming over to visit. I hope to take the kids to Gold reef city, which is our local theme park this weekend and then i have a braai (BBQ) with some friends on Saturday night.
Finally a special thanks to my friend Amanda for picking me as a winner for her online give away! *Hugs* Wish we lived closer so that we could meet for tea or coffee!
Here's wishing you a great weekend.
