My second favorite thing about South Africa was Table Mountain. The views are truly breathtaking there. It was a shame I was there with my school class walking around by myself and that Tom and Phoebe were not with me. I did send them there the next day when I was doing the last day of school things. That was the day of drama I mentioned before. Turns out everyone has started forming teams for the fall term when we have to work on a final project that will be due in May. I found out that morning that people were forming teams and that no one had talked to me about it, which kind of left me feeling like the last person picked in gym class. My feelings were extremely hurt. I'm afraid to ask why I was not approached to help make up a team, but I think it's because not too many people know me well. I'm usually too busy trying to balance the kids, work and school. I think my team for the summer semester is liking me, I'm really pushing myself to do well and be more outspoken. I was not a big fan of the team I had last term, as the only person I don't like in the class of 30 people was on that team. He's much more impatient with getting moving on things, when I like to sit back and think a bit before diving in.
After this post, I have a lot to say about the rest of the trip to Paris and London with Tom and Phoebe. We had so much fun! On to the South Africa pictures! First Joburg with Marcia driving me from the other side of the car!

This giraffe did like Phoebe's hair. Thought it was a snack!
I was so happy to see Marcia and her family that day!!! Can you see how tired I was from the trip though???
Our handsome men! Hope they are both having a great Father's Day today!
More love for the Mommy!

We had exhausted the kids at that point! Hope they slept well that night....
