Passports at the ready, the kiddies headed off to South Africa today to look at the mountains...
...they cut out the shape of the country and used a contour map to recreate its mountainous regions, using easy peasy tissue paper.
They checked out some photos and facts about South Africa on Kids' National Geographic and the two eldest created a chart for its main crop growth.
Papa lived in Namibia for four years, with the occasional trip to South Africa, so we dug out some of his awe-inspiring photographs.
The Boy had a check up with his asthma nurse today. He took his bag with his inhalers, spacers and asthma plan in and held the most adorable and responsible conversation with the nurse about when he uses his inhaler and when he needs it most. He has grown 2cm and put on a whole kilo. I am so proud of him.
We finished our afternoon in the library, this evening my eldest daughter was promoted to a full Sea Cadet and my second eldest daughter is now in charge of all the Junior Sea Cadets. They're so cool :)
