Rushing through the week

Have to get used to being on our own again - the days are a lot busier now with all regular activities being back to normal, and minus two extra domestic workers in the house :)  I had a violin lesson at 7.30 on Tuesday eve but with cooking, cleaning and doing homework with the boys I barely had time to squeeze in a practice.  At 8.30 Liz and Graham called in after their two and a half weeks in the States.  We were thrilled to catch up with them and get a run-down of the trip - and who doesn't love an exciting box of pressies including a lot of interesting tracts for distribution!
 Wednesday was another whole day at work (since I didn't work Monday I'm doing four full days this week); at 4.30 the boys had their first violin and recorder lessons for the year.  We've switched Aaron to recorder this year so he can learn to read music, while Caleb is continuing with the violin.  Had to whip around the house doing a quick clean before and after their lessons as we had bible study in our home this evening.
Meanwhile, my parents arrived back in Joburg safely after their 40+ hour journey across continents.  We praise the Lord for their safe-keeping and that they were well enough to fly here and back and be with us.  It hurts to be separated again but we do have some wonderful memories to savour. 

Thursday the boys had swimming at 9 am so needed dropping off at the pool early.  I was in a quiet school for the first hour or so!  Popped in at the Camerons during lunchtime to return some holiday items; good to have a quick catch up and hello.  Got home around 4 after running a few errands after school; gave Nick a haircut, made tea, and at 7.30 pm did the grocery shopping.  Phew!
