The Holiday Awakens…


In a land far far away, at 26.2 degrees South latitude and 28 degrees East longitude the warriors have been at work.

For almost eleven months, Micah, Jake, and Caleb have battled their way through geography, math, history, science, language arts, keyboarding, computer science, and more in the Happy Blue School until the day arrived – the time to rest and enjoy the South African sun.

…But wait!!!


…something has stirred in the still waters.

…there has been an awakening.

…have you felt it?

…a force of play to be reckoned with and that can not be denied.


Micah and Caleb felt its powerful lure the most and succumbed to its dynamic force.




Jake, on the other hand, was content. He would not take part. He preferred the lounging effects of the lapping waves than to be influenced by the  call to action.


And so the force of play arose…



When I returned later, the warriors had not yet downed their sabers and Micah yelled, “Mom, we could do this forever! The summer holiday has only begun!”


And it’s true. The holiday has awakened. It’s time to play. It’s time to relax. It’s time to celebrate. And it’s time to share the love of family.


Well Done, Micah, Jake and Caleb! You have fought through the school year exceptionally well and your dad and I couldn’t be more proud of you!

Enjoy the holiday – it is indeed a force to be reckoned with!
