Saturday, January 30
Our low key day started with a big milestone—Tisetso’s first donuts! He had picked out a chocolate donut at the grocery store the day before. I’d say his first donut experience was not the best. He picked at the chocolate, tried one actual bite, then left and asked what was for breakfast. I’m sure once he’s tried donuts from Harner's, our local bakery, he’ll be hooked.
For the better part of the morning, Brian and Tisetso went to the mall to pick up a few things we needed for the next morning (beach towels and beach toys). I enjoyed a couple of hours to myself and folded laundry, picked up, and wrote.
Lunch was a good time as Tisetso grilled our hotdogs. He had watched Brian grill (braai) the day before and was interested in helping. It was great to see the two of them working together to get the hotdogs cooked. Tisetso enjoyed being the "braai master."
In the afternoon we did a session of school, tried to convince Tisetso to go to the beach (especially as he had had so much fun the night before), and saw a film crew on the beach in front of our house.
We ended the evening by watching the first part of Up. It reminded me why I never watch that movie—I was crying within the first 10 minutes. Ridiculous.
