School holidays come with such mixed emotions for some people. If you’re a teacher you most likely are excited to be having a break, if you’re in high school you can’t wait to sleep late, if you’re a working mum (like myself) you’re probably thinking “how will I entertain my child for FIVE weeks” and if you’re Erin Grace you’re CRYING “I want to go to schoolie”.
A few months ago when I was wondering what I would do with Erin for five weeks, I started planning activities, holiday programme, play dates and a small family vacation. FIVE weeks, like seriously, is that REALLY necessary? Surely kids could use a week or two, but FIVE? Just seems excessive and unnecessary?
Erin kept busy most of the holiday by attending holiday programme for three days (couldn’t send her for more as it’s R190 A MORNING), going to her best friend Monkey’s house with her nanny and going to my good friend Toni’s house (she has three daughters that Erin adores).
Last week we set out on our small family vacation. We realized that us three had not really been on a holiday, as every time a holiday comes up, Erin goes to my folks. Damien doesn’t believe it’s much of a holiday is your baby/ under 3 year old child comes with….
We went to Hazyview for five days and stayed in a WONDERFUL place called Waterberry Hill, +-8km from the Pabeni Kruger National Park gate. We went to the Kruger for a whole day, went sight seeing (think Bourkes Luck potholes) and relaxed and spent QT with each other A LOT!
It was a well deserved and very much needed family vacation, but here’s the pictures that say it all……
Erin super excited to go to the “game averse” for the first time
I think Erin had five action packed weeks of holiday and she wasn’t bored much but after such a long break my dear school loving, Montessori thriving darling angel CANNOT wait to go back to school tomorrow and neither can I 🙂
