a birthday in the house!

yep, KIRSTIN kissy-cheeks turned 7 on friday. oh, what a fun-fun day for her. she was really spoiled and blessed. she got a bicycle from jaku and me and heaps and heaps of presents from her friends at the party the afternoon. i really thought that i will not survive 12 kids but i did and i enjoyed it too much. mainly because some of the moms came to tea and we had a lovely afternoon. we set the bicycle up the previous evening so that when she came up the stairs she would see it. she gave a whelp of joy. tia said she is sooo glad for her sister


when jana came up the stairs and saw the bike, she just sat back on her knees and said: You! shouldn't have done that to me!


but the next morning she and tia got their bikes too and die kaap was hollands. we just totally didn't expect the learning curve to be so steep. tia is fine - she went with jaku, johann and marian on their run, riding her bike for 8km. i am proud of her.

will blog again soon. love and a kiss.
