We went to mass again at Maria Regina in Lyttelton Manor this morning. The priest is leaving at the end of Feb, which kind of puts a wrench in my plan of getting spiritual advisement from him. Hopefully the new guy will be open to that. Anyway, I digress. Here are the kids in the […]

2/7/2009: Mission Work – The Beginning

By online gaming companies based in london | February 9, 2009

This evening I was picked up at the house by Gordon and Francis – the latter is a full-time missionary; the former, a colleague at Vodacom. They do mission work on a regular basis in townships (slums), informal settlements (really bad slums), and outreach centres that cater to, for example, refugee Zimbabweans. I am very […]

2/7/2009: Saturday Morning Rituals

By online gaming companies based in london | February 7, 2009

When I was growing up, our Saturday morning ritual was to get up early to the smell of pancakes cooking in the kitchen and the sound of Saturday morning cartoons. Since cartoons are too freaky for even me to watch anymore, we’ve eliminated that part of the morning, but I still like to cook pancakes […]

2/6/2009: Ala Turka

By online gaming companies based in london | February 7, 2009

We decided that an evening out was in order, as we’ve been really good all week. We stuck to April’s meal plan and haven’t eaten out at all, instead cooking and eating at home. We knew of a place called Ala Turka in the Irene Village Mall, about 2km from our house, so we decided […]

2/5/2009: Adam’s work

By online gaming companies based in london | February 5, 2009

I went up to the office yesterday to meet with the guys with whom I work and organize some logistics for the demo we are doing on Friday for the head of the group over at Vodacom. Shortly after arriving, C. asks me “what have you done?”. C. is the head of the group mind […]

2/3/2009: The Return of Philemon and Mexican Food!

By online gaming companies based in london | February 4, 2009

Philemon showed up this afternoon. He had been at a social worker’s office on Monday and today to sort out some issues with the separation and impending divorce from his wife. They have a small child, so he was pretty broken up it seemed. I told him we were just worried that something had happened […]

2/2/2009: Philemon?

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

Today April and the children did school a little differently – they had been up late the night before, so she thought that she would do all the manipulatives today. It went well and John got all the way through lesson 12 on Tucker signing. He then read two books – excellent! Lydia said that […]

2/1/2009: Choich and Guests

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

This morning we tried Maria Regina parish once again, this time at 10 rather than 7:30 to see if there were more families in attendance, and there were. As we left the church we saw a Homemaker’s Market that appeared to be open! I loved all of the fresh produce! We got some things for […]

1/31/2009: Weekending

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

We got up and ready, expecting to head over to the Irene Craft market again. Little did we know that they took the entire month of January off. 😐 We decided to instead go to the dairy to hang out and get some milk and other groceries. Afterward we came home to swim, eat leftover […]

1/30/2009: Airshow and Ciao Restaurant

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

Today the children drew pictures of the beach and glued actual Durban beach sand onto them in school. When they tried to get back to work, they heard helicopters outside. Turns out there was an airshow, probably at the air force base close to our neighbourhood. They watched two different formations make practice circles – […]

1/29/2009: Rain again

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

It rained again all day. Bummer – no pool! April decided that we need to find activities outside the house to break up the routine from time to time. We had Boerwoers (traditional sausage) for supper and I was hooked. Very nice! April and the children weren’t so thrilled with them however.

1/28/2009: VOIP!

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

It rained all day today, so the kids could not swim. That’s a bad thing, as their energy level increases and our patience decreases when we are going stir crazy. I got the Voice Over IP (VOIP) phone working today, so we can receive calls at our old 806 home phone number! April promptly got […]

1/27/2009: Back to the routine

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

Today April started school with the children again and had a bit of a rough time with them, since they were out of sorts with their schedule. We realized this morning that yet another drawback of Grandma not being here, other than her wonderful company, is that the kids have to eat cereal rather than […]

1/26/2009: Mom leaves :(

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

Everyone slept in a bit today, a result of being tired from our trip to Durban and exacerbated by our sunburns. My mom and I went to pick up the Land Rover (again) and hit the grocery store to get some things for her to take back to the States. When we got home my […]

1/25/2009: Durban and home

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

We awoke, packed up our room, got dressed for mass, and went to a nice old church (built in the 1800’s) named St. Anthony’s. April made the joke that it was easy to find! Ha Ha Ha! We then went to McDonald’s so my mom could experience the wonder of franchise reliability and how they […]

1/24/2009: Indian Ocean in Durban

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

We got up, packed our beach bags, got dressed, and headed out to the beach. We finally found a parking spot after driving down the beach a bit. We walked a few blocks down to a cafe to have breakfast and found the best banana nut muffin most of us had ever tasted. Afterward, one […]

1/23/2009: Trip to Durban

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

Today we packed up the Caravan and drove for around six hours to Durban. My mom had made sandwiches for lunch, so about halfway we stopped at a roadside park and had a picnic lunch. It was wonderfully decorated and the playground was great! On the way we saw many amazing sights – little painted […]

1/22/2009: Ready to travel and vehicle problems

By online gaming companies based in london | February 3, 2009

Schooling went very well today – Mary pushed through the school work and John came back from a long break to be completely finished by 10:15! We then packed our bags for the weekend journey and ate lunch. We went shopping for a baby cot and swim suits for the boys (it had been raining […]
