Family update

So this is what's happening in our lives at the mo.....

MrGee is doing so well. He is managing his weight.... something the doctors said he would battle with because the steroids and cortisone he has to take make him ravenous! He is still travelling up to Johannesburg every week(a 6 hr drive) for business. Vault-IT is growing even though he has had to diversify his business due to Google making off-site storage a free service. But as I've seen in the any years we've been together MrGee always makes a plan. So although we are watching what we spend we are doing alright.

WizzKid is in his last year of school and is battling to decide between studying a BSc in Computer Science or Microbiology. At one stage he had thought of getting a swimming bursary and studying overseas, but he told us he doesn't have the desire to swim another 5 years after school. In a way I'm glad as the thought of him moving to the USA scared this momma! He is driving like a pro and hopes to get his license in the latter half of this year. We have told him that he needs to save R20 000(about $2500) towards a car and then we will put in the rest. He is working furiously at getting this amount. He also has a girl that he is about to ask out.... eek! This is definitely an exciting chapter in his life.

CoolDude is in grade 9 and loving Waterfall College.After 7 years of homeschooling this small school has been an absolute blessing to us all. I LOVED the years I had teaching my boy, but I felt,due to our similiar personalities, he needed to be taught by someone else so that I could just be MOM!.... I am a bit sad that he has chosen to stop swimming as he has SUCH potential in that field bt he told us he hates it and that it makes him depressed knowing that every day he has to finish off with 2 hours of swimming. He is a much happier boy these days.

Miss Tanzi and I are having fun learning together. We are doing Sonlights condensed World History for her Grade 3 year. She is coming along beautifully with her singing and is proving to be a natural butterfly swimmer. I'm so happy for her that she has made friends with a couple of girls in our complex and enjoys making cookies with them and selling to the neighbours.

I am back into my walking and pilates.... boy am I unfit and stiff jointed! My mosaicing has taken a bit of a backseat as I've been sorting out the lounge and rearranging things. I'm having fun revamping old picture frames. MrGee and I are in our third month of marriage counselling and things are coming along really well in our relationship. This year I've decided to serve at Childrens Church and I'm enjoying building relationships with the 10-11 year old girls.

Love Fifi x
