The sun still rises every day!

It's been hectic!

I had taken 5 days leave to go camping with the Little Miss! I am censoring myself so much, as I do not want to say too much! Suffice to say that it was our last time camping in this way, and that I won't let my daughter go on a trip like this again! I am so glad that Hubby and I went along. Being eight years is definitely too young to send your child on their own on a camp! I am SO disappointed!

The children made art works over the weekend camping. The marble art (rolling marbles in paint and letting it roll over paper) was part of their projects.

This past traumatic weekend was magnified by our own family financial crisis! As if not enough, the country's economy took a dive which does not bode well for a rosy future in finances (personal and investment related)!

This is life! I know we will survive!
On the personal and broader level!

I just need to dig deep, go inside (as introverts do), and carry on!

The sun rises every day!
Even on a bad camping weekend!


The school holidays are in full swing, but we are still working! (The traffic is definitely better!) Lucky you if you are able to go away for a while!

Where are you going or what are you doing for the holidays?

  1. Don't worry. I believe there is light at the end of a very dark tunnel. The worst will be over soon.

  3. We only do those regional camps in our Kommando from grade 4 onwards because they are so long.

    1. That's a very good idea, Cat! They are definitely too long!

  4. Pity the camping didn't go well. I think we all also in a state of grief / shock over the events in SA. Last night Cliff and I had THAT discussion, next step to be boldly taken is where to go? Like you say the sun will still rise

    1. Anon, you are so right! I know it is all about perspective! I choose the rose coloured tint as well! :-)

  6. It should be fun for the kids and not a slave camp. Young kids should be in bed at 8pm. Rather go on peaceful bushveld camp for the weekend with your own family. Much more you can teach your children.
