Homeschooling, farm life and our love of earth

"Everything that happens to you is your teacher. The secret is to learn to sit at the feet of your own life and be taught by it." ~Polly Berrien Berends

Yesterday we collected Hope from Customs and brought her home to meet Thandi, the orphan that will live with Hope. [ nice pun!].

She was dressed for a snow storm so we changed her into summer clothes.

Nolundi fell in love with her and rocked her for a bit. :-)

Oh my she is so special... Read about her here - TRAVELLING HOPE
I then took her to the village were Alta's daughter cuddled her and then started to cry big splashy tears from her huge brown eyes. She gave her back with my promise that Hope could spend some time with her.
