“The question is not, - how much does the youth know?
when he has finished his education --
but how much does he care?
and about how many orders of things does he care?
In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set?
and, therefore, how full is the life he has before him?”
We are into our 3rd week of holidays. I took an extra week off, to work on our B&B accommodation websites, and attract more guests. It has been worth it, as we are now receiving more bookings.
Our tropical gardens
This week I am trying to relax, but also get geared up for our last 7 weeks of Ambleside Online year 4, before we reach Christmas season and our most busiest part of the year with our three apartments.
It's incredible how quickly our children grow and change, and before we know it, we are out of all the fun craft stage, where schooling was much simpler.
Through my daughters lens
I have been struggling with the transition of my children becoming older, more independent and truly becoming their own persons. This is what I desire of course, to see them be who God made them, to watch how they express their thoughts, will and emotions. But I don't think I was prepared for it to happen so fast, for the time to slip through my fingers like sand.
My son all geared up
As we move on in life, and people and things change, I am realising more and more that it's about being content right where you are. I believe this is one of the greatest battles, for one to be content right where they are. The more that I am thankful and grateful for where I am at, the more I am content with everything.

Being content during life's transitions, brings great fulfilment, and especially when you know the God of the universe, He can only satisfy the hunger and thirst that all mankind have inside their souls.
