Koeksisters and Rugby - South African traditions

Interesting day we had today! Theo's rugby match was fun. They lost, but they had a good game. I've managed to get some pictures of him tackling guys twice his size and hope to scrap them soon.

Tonight there was a heritage scrap over at The Daily Scrap - the challenge was to scrap some tradition or habit to remember. I thought koeksisters (a sweet sugar dumpling, for want of a better translation) would be a good subject!

The bigger layout can be seen here if you want to read more about this treat.

About the rugby - here is one small cutout of Theo tackling a guy very close to the posts - the blue in the background is the foot of one of the posts under which a try could be scored.

Oh - and not to look as if one son gets more attention than the other (LOL heaven forbid!) - Jaco was invited to get a Principal's award on Friday, for staying on the honours roll. Hope to get a picture there - they are usually very good and keep these awards ceremonies small enough for people to circulate and chat and get good bragbook pictures for the grandparents.

Thanks for reading!
