Longest night!21 June , 2013
Tonight will be the longest night for the southern hemisphere. You know what that means, right? 🙂 We’ll be getting more sun as of tomorrow…slowly but surely spring is creeping up on us. I could not be more thrilled if I tried! Of course this doesn’t exactly mean that winter is over, the nights will still be cold – but at least they’ll be shorter?
This also marks the one year anniversary of Nicola potty training herself. Thousands saved in diapers over the last year. That’s definitely a reason to celebrate!
Another reason is that we got Nicola’s half year report card yesterday. She did brilliantly! I am so proud of my daughter (of course even without that), but it’s lovely to see that she’s doing well at school as well as at home.
This is what her teacher wrote at the end of the report about Nicola:
Nicola werk ywerig en onafhanklik, sy prober haar bes in alles wat sy doen. Sy geniet dit om met haar maatjies buite te speel. Juffrou is trots op jou liefie. (Nicola works hard and independently, she tries her best in everything she does. She enjoys playing with her friends outside. Teacher is very proud of you lovey. – loosely translated).
- A proper princess needs a pink towel…don’t you know? 😉
- Ouma’s vegetable soup – best ever!
3 & 4. Pirate princess…arrrgh! 😆
