The end of the school year is chugging along, and I can now fill out my lesson calendar all the way up to the last day which leads to important questions like, what movie do I select for my last few hours with the 9th graders?
We’ve been working a little bit on cleaning out our third bedroom to make it into a our new guestroom (since the current guestroom will become the baby’s room), so if anyone wants to buy a desk, or a roll-out couch, we’re selling them for cheap.
We’ve also been working a little bit on our trip to South Africa, including buying the Lonely Planet guide which I pored over last weekend. We’re hoping to do some kayaking and whale watching and light hiking. Things like wine tasting and long hikes and 4×4 safari drives are sort of out of the realm of possibilities. I am a little nervous about our long drive (8 hours) from the Cederburg Mountains to the Garden Route—more so than about the flights!
The book has a good section on literature so I hope to read lots of South African books while I’m there, with one important hiccup: my Kindle seems to be kaput (boring story). So I’ll have to replace that before we go since I don’t plan on filling my suitcase with books.
