Miss Tanzi misses her Dad so much that she often writes little notes and places them on his bed before he arrives home. This time she wanted to make a card for her 'Precious Daddy'.

They have it all sorted..... CoolDude deals with client liasons and Cooldude does the photography and packaging. They make an awesome team and it's wonderful to see my offspring working together!.....;)
"Just had a memory flash-back .... Do you remember when WizzKid was about 3 , we were at City of Life and he tried to get MrGee's attention during the service but MrGee was too engrossed in the message so WizzKid walked to the front corner , whipped it out and "sprinkled" all over the floor ! We were in fits of laughter when MrGee suddenly realised what was happening ! :-) You remember ? lol good memories !"
What a wonderful memory to include in his 21st speech! haha

For 2 years Miss Tanzi was obsessed with them. She would create different 'looks' on the ballerinas, pop stars,tennis players,beach girls,princesses etc.. When I found a new book in this series she was beyond ecstatic!
Now that she is older(6 yrs) she has fallen in love with Klutz's range of Paper Fashions

It's mind blowing to think that we have stuck at it for this long. I started homeschooling CoolDude in 2005 just to give him a gap year and to allow him to mature emotionally. The whole 'Boys take longer to mature' is a truth! The plan was to stick him back, a year later, into mainstream schooling for Grade 2. You can read about that HERE. (of course we didn't)
We did have a years break from home-ed, in 2008, when all three kids were put back into a private school the year we relocated from Johannesburg to Natal. I felt they needed to make friends in a new Provence and the plan worked well. Oh yes, there was a very short period(at the end of 2009) when MrGee stuck the boys back into private schooling when we were going through a difficult time in our marriage ....
Both have an Internet Business selling second hand goods on BiD or BuY and being home schooled frees them up to pursue their areas of interest instead of having to attend senseless after school requirements at a regular school.
I feel so blessed being Miss Tanzi's teacher and seeing her blossom before my eyes. I'm experiencing her growth in education and character first hand. She is my 'Gods Girl' and our learning together is creating a beautiful bond between us. Of course, I am fervently reading James Dobsons book, 'Bringing Up Girls'. His insight is such a help...... and I need it daily!
