Jessica reading "have"

One of Jessica's sight words this week is "have". So naturally she sounds it out like h a v e, but I told her that she shouldn't sound the e out. Why mommy, did they make a little mistake?

Potjiekos …

Last weekend we invited Gert and Elize over for potjiekos … so glad we brought our potjie with! The one thing that is really cheaper in Australia is ox tail (I remember it being really expensive in South Africa) In the shops you will find it next to the dog bones, in between gross stuff like pig ears, beef hearts and who knows what.

So we made a delicious ox tail potjie … mouth watering!!!

This was a little different because we had to do it on the gas braai, but it was so much easier than doing it on a wood fire.

Racing downhill in a park, boys will be boys!

Cycling …

Here are a couple of photos of us cycling with the kids.  There are so many stunning parks close to our house with wonderful play areas for the kids, so we o ften pack a little picnic bag, load the kids on the bikes and go park-crawling.  Not as exciting as pub-crawling, but the kids love it!!  Okay, slightly less often now that it’s winter and a bit cooler …
