Hello dear friends. What a week it has been. News of an earthquake and hurricane overseas, which is still on my mind and affecting my friends on the east coast. Sickness here in our household, of various sorts. I can say I have the utmost respect for the amazing discovery of Penicillin, and would be long ago deceased without it. Aren’t we lucky to live in this day and age.
We have mango trees, and boy are they fruiting. Soon, we will have mango delights ! It is such fun to live in a tropical climate, so different to anything i’ve ever experienced before. It has now been ‘dry’ for 6 months, wonderful cool weather. In the next few months it will heat up and bring the rainy ‘wet’ season with it. During the exchange, we experience 8 full months without a single drop of rain. Marvelous how the trees and plants and people adapt.
Due to our illnesses of sorts we’ve had some downtime from the homeschooling, but we have managed to complete our newspaper Biology man, turning it into a fun game to boot. This was super fun for us all….. Moving on into Roman Numerals in our Maths.
I myself having revelations of sorts as I continue reading “Art of zen” as discussed before. So many things I could post from it, but I won’t. Just read it sometime, won’t yoU? It has helped me become more rooted – in a foreign country that isn’t easy to do I had thought. But aren’t you the same person wherever you roam? Perhaps life throws little tests at us ; intervalls of teaching and learning. The world keeps spinning around and around.
( I’m glad to be on it. )
