I had a whole “Ten on Tuesday” post in my head last night and then tried to access my blog from my browser favourites only to realise the format was being changed over! Hello WordPress! Now to navigate and play here a bit to personalise it all. Change is as good as a holiday.
Tash has had quite a few exam marks back already. She’s done great in Maths and Xhosa, in fact, she got 96% for the latter. History was a little disappointing as I know she knew her work, but it didn’t translate in the exam. Afrikaans was Hero & Zero. She did really well in the “Taal” section and totally bombed in the “Begrip” so hopefully it evens out well to a good pass. They still need to add all the term assessments and projects in but I feel she’s done well enough for her high school application. Eeeep! Can you believe we are starting to talk high school already!
My friend F was fantastic in helping her prepare for all her exams, particularly Maths and I’m so grateful she was able to help out. I can really see the difference it has made. With me working full day, she usually only gets to study when we get home. Considering she’s at school from just after 7am and we only get home around 6pm, sometimes 6.30pm, you can understand that more arguments than learning happen as she’s tired by then. Being able to study in the afternoons has made a HUGE difference to both our lives.
We all need angels like this in our lives.
