A week in photos – loving Spring!8 September , 2014
Remember how I counted down?
So worth it! 🙂
This was on Thursday at the information morning at Nicola’s school for next year.
They planned a two hour event, but they lost about 130 little people in the audience 20 minutes in. Haha, when the principal came on, you could tell he definitely wasn’t used to being more or less ignored.
I really like the school. Obviously…otherwise I wouldn’t have stalked them online for the last three years. I do have my doubts about this new principal though…I hope he’s much more approachable in real life than on stage. Also, his one piece of advice to the parents very much didn’t suit me…apparently we mustn’t believe everything we hear because our kids all make up stuff? I will always believe what Nicola tells me, unless I know for a fact she understood things wrong. Always.
The children got to try out their new playground for next year – big hit!
Nicola’s favourite part…this space ship! The little girl who joined her has a very unlikely name hahaha!
Very pleased with herself. 🙂
My favourite part of the playground is this giant tree.
Polka went for her big snip on the same day.
Cute vet asked me if I was a nursery school teacher because he heard the playground noise when he phoned to let me know that they had to pull some extra teeth while she was under and that she was doing well after the op.
Apparently the small breeds battle to lose their milk teeth. He left quite a few in…and she might have to go back for another procedure next year if she doesn’t lose them on her own by then.
Feeling very sorry for herself…poor baby.
Nicola and Polka, Finding Nemo while enjoying some breakfast.
Helping Ouma make some of her famous apple crumble pies (or “tasting” big hands full of dough every time Ouma turns her back. 😉
It was so hot in the afternoon that I hosed down the children. They LOVED it! If all goes well, we’ll do our first pool swim of the season this coming weekend.
More ice cream!
More ice cream!
I don’t know what this plant is called, but it’s putting up a great display at our place at the moment.
I finally managed to tie up Polka’s hair. It lasted all of 5 minutes untill she figured put how to untie it again. I’ll take her for a serious trim once her stiches come out…
No small feat getting a photo of her double row of teeth…she kept trying to chew my hand off with them!
Splashing in puddles after we planted some new shrubs at my folks yesterday.
Watching a phone video with Oupa.
Getting very comfortable on Ouma.
How was your weekend? 🙂
