Gone Hiking…

Today we are going to do hiking at the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve. It’s so nice and cool today. We want to try and spot the Zebra’s and Impala’s.

We spot the centipedes, when you touch them they curl up.

And then we spotted the zebras and the impalas. We were hiding in the bush but when they saw us they fled.

Mami said she wants a better picture of the animals, so we followed their spoors.

Here are some impala prints. And here we are walking through the bush, watch out for those thorns. And yes… here we see the Zebras again but once again they run away from us.

It was great today in the bush, the scenery is beautiful and it’s just a very nice day out to get some fresh air and clear the head.

Christmas!!!!

I wake up early in the morning, it is a miserable day so it seems to be dark still and I sit down on the couch and look at the presents. The Christmas tree is flickering with lights and I see Santa has been to deliver our presents. He ate the biscuit and drank the milk and when I think about him having been in the house I get excited.

Later in the afternoon we get visitors. Jayden and EJ with their parents and Connor with his parents and his granny. There is a whole lot of food, it looks like we are feeding an army. A turkey, chicken, gammon, tuna, salads, fried rice, potato and for desert Ice cream, chocolate mousse, biscuits and chocolate truffels.

We had a great day of fun, playing with all the friends, unwrapping presents and staying up late.

Today is my Birthday and I’m turning 12. I’m so excited, I said to my mami that I want to go climbing on my birthday. So my mami booked for us to go to the climbing barn in Pretoria.

I said that I’m not scared but when I managed to get higher I got a little scared and I wanted to go down again. I need to take a little break and then try again. My brother Kai and my friend Connor also come and climb so when they climbing I can have a break.

The next climb is already going much better… look at me!!!! …..step by step….reaching for the top.

Kai is doing very well. He is planning ahead looking out for the rocks to hold on to. But like all of us, he also got tired…

It was a super day and to round it all up we had burger and chips at the Spur… my favorite restaurant.

Making a bracelet

I have to choose the colour of the thread and the beads I want to use.

Then comes the complicated twisting and turning of the thread…wow it is a little hard to make it look nice…really.

But it’s coming right and I’m proud of the outcome…..
