Our 52 Week Challenge

  1. Walk of the Week: Tokai Plantation is a little further than our usual walks…
  2. se7en - 170115 - 0436.jpg

  3. Game of the Week: The game you can just play on forever…
  4. My Just Because Book:

  5. A friend of mine lent me this book and I read it an afternoon… full of interesting and useful snippets. This doesn’t tell you how to homeschool high-schoolers, but rather where homeschooling stands for high-schoolers in South Africa. It was useful in that it provides the legal stand, and mentions a variety of steps for those folk wanting to take their kids from their homeschool and into a tertiary studies. Food for thought.

  6. Letter of the Week: I totally and utterly forgot to write a letter… even I can’t believe it!!!
  7. Organizing Project of the Week: Oh blergh… the totally unplanned and galactic computer clean up…

  9. Recipe of the Week: The Quickest Easiest Cake in the World…
  10. DSC_0491

  11. Our View from the Deck: I cannot believe I will keep this up for 365 days… nearly a month though!!!

    Tokai forest is my daily (almost) stomping ground and the day we chose to go to “your”beach must have been the windiest one this month so far!

    Oh Cat, Thank you so much!!! We have a kids’ pack of UNO, which is a collection of every single lose and missing Uno card ever found… and that my guys use all the time to play. And then a very pristinely kept pack in the actual original box for when they want to play with me… it’s the only way!!! Have a good week!!!

    Hi Wendy, so we swapped hoods… I know, I know… the first week in forever that schools are back and we can claim our beach as our own and it has just been too windy to step out the door!!! What can I say, the luxury of living here is that we can pick our days. Sorry you got such a blustery day when you were down here. Hope you are having a great week!!!
