This is not the norm for the village we live in. Even MrGee was on form after a serious bout of gastric flu. I think the sun cheered him up beautifully and he quickly got in touch with his mischievious side ........
After a wonderful family day , I decided to go to church..... so I visited Hillside church for the first time. Miss Tanzi and I loved it! The praise and worship was good! It was such a blessing to see Miss Tanzi praising the Lord with her arms stretched high.
Have a blessed week.

The question was .......
"John spent $24 of his savings on a watch and 1 fifth of the remainder on a T- shirt. He still had 2 thirds of his savings left. How much was his savings at first?"
WizzKid and I were perplexed!
After much deliberation ..... Wizzkid turned to me and said "Gees-man , John should have kept his flippin' receipt!!!" ...... we laughed and laughed!!

CoolDude has quite a good Afrikaans accent for an English boy!

CoolDude, on the other hand, has not enjoyed swimming for the past year. But MrGee and I have felt to keep him at it. He suffers from Sever's Disease (it sounds worse than it really is!) and swimming is the ideal sport for this condition. He also has large, flat feet, and a very natural breastroke style which are both indications that he just might excel in the water!

On Sunday morning MrGee went to church, and I watched the movie FireProof. I realise that this movie possibly was released on DVD in the U.S many moons ago, but for us in S.A it's considered a new release.
What a powerful message this movie packs! I honestly howled like a baby when Caleb knelt at Catherine's bed and asked for her forgiveness. The kids and one of their friends came running to see if I was injured! I explained to Miss Tanzi that I was crying because I felt good inside. Her expression was one of bewilderment as she tried to make sense of the combination of my leaking eyes and happy heart!
I was SO blessed by this movie and will watch it again ...... and again !

This was WizzKid's first Midmar mile but I am sure that as long as we stay in this country we will take part in this event EVERY year ! MrGee said he wants to enter next year. I really hope he doesn't enter us as a family ...... yikes !
