It has been such a tough year for Faith in terms of school. Some of the relationships she has have challenged her almost beyond what she felt she could bear. There have been many tears, many prayers and many talks about how to journey through something that seems undo-able.
We went as far as to allow her to go and visit another brilliant local government school in our area, Fish Hoek Primary. She wanted to know what it would be like to be part of something BIG, something with so much to offer in terms of friendships, activities and extramurals. I think it was an excellent experience for her. She took it all in. She enjoyed it but ultimately she was able to see the value of the small school she is privileged enough to attend.
She has gone back, armed with knowledge and experience, with a completely different perspective. She is able to look at the pros and cons with maturity beyond her years and make the very best of each day.
I am insanely proud of her and so happy (such a lame word) that she has seemingly found her groove.
