Hi everyone

I know it’s been a while since I last published – almost four months to the day – but whilst I’ve been extremely busy and having heaps of fun, not much has changed or needed updating on.

This weekend however, I solicited Dad’s inputs, as he is in Windhoek on a business trip.  So while he’s sitting around the hotel doing nothing over the weekend, I decided he should publish my blog again and make use of his free time.  Admittedly I know he is working really hard during the week, but during the weekend he can take a break from ‘establishing a new bank’ as he calls his project.  Sadly, he’ll be travelling back and forth for many more months.  Mom and I really miss him.

On my front Granny and Mommy are taking turns schooling me at home, and I’ve come some way.  Mom, Dad and Granny are frustrated by my stubbornness which makes schooling hard.  But Mom and Granny have been wonderful and persist in my education.

I’m continuing speech, OT and trauma therapy on a weekly basis, and I have also started working with a brilliant reading tutor called Bo.  Some weeks are tougher than others, but I mostly do love going to my various therapists.

Mom and Dad are entering some exciting times as they have a Sherpa Kids franchise in Houghton, serving six schools.  I’m looking forward to “helping” Mom and Dad during their site visits to the various aftercare centres.

Well, that’s about it.  The 200 plus photos below will give you a glimpse of my other antics over the past while!

Happy scrolling and all the best for 2017!
