Se7en’s Fabulous Fun Post #323

July 11th, 2016 · 6 Comments

This is pretty much where we are at, relaxing and chilling out… and busy catching up with all our school friends that are on holiday right now. So lots of business and lots of relaxing and not a whole lot in-between. The weather has been pretty glorious, so plenty of time to run around exploring in the great outdoors too…


First things first, if you haven’t read our interview on Growing up in South Africa on Simple Homeschool, then click on the link already. I shared a few details of our life and times that I don’t often share over here on our own blog.


And we have a fabulous World Wide GiveAway click on the link if you missed it and leave a comment.

Lovely Links from This Week

  1. Playing by the Book has excellent post after excellent post after excellent post: I loved her post: Nuturing Reading Over the Summer Break and if you are looking for some magic: Once upon a Wish is Just Epic.
  2. Babble Dabble Do posted a gazillion Art projects for Kids!!!
  3. Oh how dreamy is this space… Susie Q on Natalie Creates…
  4. A little late in the month to discover this, but it is fantastic: Take a look at the July 2016 Nature Journal Calendar on Blog, She Wrote.
  5. Tinkering Space on Tinkerlab… Oh to be a kid again and visit this spot!!!
  6. Almost everyone we know is away, has been away, will be away and I can’t help browsing around GetAway Magazine…
  7. I have vicariously traveled to Italy over the past few weeks with Alison Chino… and I will never ever complain about the stairs up the mountain behind our house again. I know never say never… but seriously!!!

A Blast From the Past:


The Last Week for Free Entry for Kids into Kirstenbosch

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is absolutely free for kids during the school holidays, you do have to buy a ticket for the accompanying adults though. They have a fantastic kids program for families… I’ll say it again… it is absolutely free. You can download the entire Winter Wonders 2016 Programme on the Kirstenbosch website.

    ah, thanks for including me in your round up! The Susie Q space made me think of this:

    We should create one of these together. An international travelling bookshop!

    Fantastic links this week, gang! I’m loving following @nataliecreates and that little camper is just the best! Is @alisonchino back instagramming again? I found her through your boos awhile back, but her IG account kind of died… can’t wait to read this blog. And finally, thanks for linking playing by the book. I’ve never heard of it and can’t wait to do some more reading! xo
