The academic year for our children ended on the 30th of November. It is therefore optional to attend, until school closes on Friday for our Summer holidays. There is something very sneaky- feeling about not having to attend to school, even if it is still legal, and with the blessing of your teacher, while some of the other learners are still going (Us, Afrikaners have a saying: “Shame nê” - which literally means I feel sorry for you). We have been trying to catch-up with play dates these past few days of playing hookey, resulting in going to a movie and having some of the childrens’ friends over.
I was really amazed with the amount of creativity each one of them came up with. Watching them create each little art work, made me reach for my camera.
Luckily, this Mom saved some cookies that she wants to try and decorate with proper Royal Icing tomorrow… although I feel a little intimidated by all the talent that surrounds me apparently…..
