Hi everyone!

We’ve just come home from a wonderful week at Umhlanga. I love my beach holidays and as I’m getting older I’m doing more and more exciting things. Michelle and the two girls, Liya and Emma also joined us, so there was always some play and fun going on.

Besides our usual of building sand castles and swimming in the sea and the pool, we also went to the Kwa-Zulu Natal Sharks Board, which was a first for me. We watched an awesome video on sharks, and then a juvenile hammer head was dissected for us. During the dissection the presenters showed us all shark’s organs and how they differ from ours, as well as a few extra ones, such as the organ in their noses that sense electrical impulses. I was fascinated.

While at Umhlanga Sands we participated in the usual family bring and braais to get to meet and chat to the other holiday makers. We also went up to the Gateway on the one overcast day to play at Mr Funtubbles – we all loved it and had a rave of a time.

Sadly all of us came down with colds so we did spend a bit of our holiday not feeling too great.

The day before going on holiday Dad took me to Lauren for OT. The super exciting news is that I wrote my whole name in full and correctly. Everyone was super thrilled. Afterward Dad took me to his offices – a visit I always enjoy.

The last bit of exciting news is that Daddy is starting a new job tomorrow. I’m super excited for him, and keep saying May the Fourth Be With You!

Lots of hugs and kisses,
