We arrived safely back in South Africa just over a week ago. It’s been a crazy couple of days since then, catching up with friends and family. Unpacking large bags that traveled with us from the States, unpacking boxes that were in storage at my parents and decided what’s flying to our new home, what’s staying behind and what’s getting thrown out.


This past weekend was a little more relaxed. We went on a very traditional family trip to Kruger National Park with my family. It was my mother’s 60th (this blog was named for her), and she decided to spend it in one of her favorite places. It was a fairly fruitful weekend with lots of elephant, monitor, giraffe, and rhino sightings as well as plenty of incredible birds. Sadly no hyenas.

We are already on our way again to our final destination. Where is that destinations? I’ll give you a hint. It’s a very popular coastal city in our country, surrounded on one side by the Atlantic Ocean and on the other by a magnificent mountain named for its resemblance to a table. Hopefully by the end of this month we would have found a new home and started unpacking, settling in, and starting on a new chapter in our lives. I will keep you updated.
