Reality is that in just over a week we are off to the KwaZulu Natal coast for a two week vacation. My love is turning 60 and does not intend spending it at home. That means that everything admin related at the Mission must be up to date, all SARS returns done ahead of time and all payments scheduled for the time we are away. On top of that our end of financial year is at the end of February when we are still away...and I start getting heart palpitations just thinking of the "to do list".
Today I just want to share some moments captured these past two weeks.
Lukas with their two hounds.
Wynand and Nadia is married 7 years...and still so very much in love.
Luki lost his first tooth and started Grade 1 this year.
It always touches me deeply when my grandchildren start at the same school their fathers attended.
Stefan helping Oupa clean the pool.
We are so blessed to have this little man growing up in our home.
His favourite place...Oupa's chest.
Living in Port Elizabeth is wonderful. When we woke up last Sunday the weather was HOT and we decided to visit the Addo Elephant park which is only 30 minutes away from our city.
We got up close with the big animals...this photo was taken in the hide near a watering hole...and to see the baby elephants play in the mud was awesome.
A pretty flowering wild plant.
The plant that forms the staple food for the elephant was in flower...I never knew that they flowered.
At the Hapoor watering hole the elephants were enjoying the cool water.
I really managed to capture some great moments.
A warthog waiting for his turn at the watering hole.
Zebra standing close by.
Juan and Stefan started their new school this year. Siembamba is the same school Leane, Lukas and Dewan attended...and long before that Wynand and Bianca.
I had a birthday and had a wonderful friends date with my friend Janel.
If I have to tell you that this photo is the only one where all children are looking in the general direction of the camera...and it was the only photo that had all the children in focus...they are my pride and joy.
My five babies in our bed watching a movie.
Have you made some awesome memories this year?
Are you living each day to the full?
