kate5kiwis: Ecstatically Proud Mummy Announcement

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Ecstatically Proud Mummy Announcement

Samuel won the School High Jump today!
reckons the bar he's jumping's up to his neck -
Fosbury Flop styles, of course.
not bad for a first-timer.
ROCKS. THE. UNIVERSE.

now i'm off to bed with my uni reading and its Big Words -
epistemology, pedagogy, boggly-eye-ology... and the dictionary. cos peeps are already commenting in the forum and i have... oh... about a third of an idea of what's going on.
it's a bit scary.
making stuff is far easier.

good news - am on target for the triathlon on sunday. did a bike ride and a swim today (and a kick boxing class - my newest addiction) but i really need to beg/borrow/scrounge a bike WITH GEARS for the race - samuel's kid bike is knees-around-the-ears crazeeee stuff. know anyone in The Sunny Bay whose bike would like to ride around the block with me on sunday?

gooder news - if ya think unschooling is fun, you should try three days Study Leave with Bulldog. apart from the heady uni stuff, i am *so* sold on this lifestyle.

Go Sambo!

epistemology sounded scarily close to something else medical for a nano-second there.

Study leave... sigh... sounds divine...

Awesome high jumper! I did high jump way back when, sometimes I miss it ;).

And I totally have a bike you could borrow!! I am a little far away though. Best wishes, I can't believe you are doing a triathalon!!

Gah - if you knew the trouble I'd had leaving a comment here. My connection is so slow that it simply cannot cope with word verification and crashes out each time.

Now what did I say? Ah yes, what an amazing springy boy - you should have called him Zebedee. Not that he would have thanked you for that!

And I always cross my legs when I hear the word epistemology
