February in review

I seem to be doing everything in review this year;-)  Life just seem to be getting away from me and I am clinging on for dear life as time just speeds ahead...maybe you know the feeling.  I posted in a previous post about the divine time we had at the Tsitsikamma Lodge.  What I didn't blog about is our adventure at Tsitsikamma Adventures and our ziplining across the waterfalls.
Our group on the first platform
As free as a bird.  This was such a wonderful experience, that we will repeat it somewhere in the future.
Then there was Valentines Day.  Not really something we celebrate.  At the Mission one of the local companies in Port Elizabeth gave all the people on the program a lovely tea.
Bianca went for a 4D scan and it was amazing to see how expressive a baby's face can be at 33 weeks.
DH won the SAGES Golf championship.  I am so proud of him
 Kobus and Lache became the proud owners of a home.
The house is just around the corner from our home and suits their growing family like a glove.
 Leane, our little animal, insect, whatever lover.
..with a butterfly she saved from the pool.
Our three little ones...always have to sit ON TOP of their Oupa. (during a sleepover)
Oupa and his four grandchildren on his 57th birthday.
Lukas throwing a tantrum.
My pretty DIL Lache celebrated her 30th birthday.

Now that was quite a quick catch-up in photographs.  Kobus and Lache moved into their new home already, and they love their new space.

Then there is one layout I made for Sketch Support that I haven't posted yet.

One-page Sketch #18

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the one-page sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar of the Sketch Support blog. Here is my layout.

Hopefully I will be able to keep my blog up to date from now on...but I am not holding my breath.



  1. Love all the pics - would love to try the ziplining but too scared!

    So exciting that K&L have their own home now. Just in time for baba's arrival.

    And yes, my blogging is also rather sad at the moment. Time is something i'm lacking somewhat.


  2. jou familie lyk so happy! bladsy is baie mooi!!! x

  3. Ziplining is on my to-do list, the life one.

    I think I need to schedule the one Cat did in the Magaliesberg and go for our birthdays :)
