More Stick children.

Jimmy and Johnny are walking to the top of the hill. It is a beautiful, sunny day. They are enjoying the lovely fresh air.

 Sue and Sally are following them. Sue is the oldest of all the kids, but she also loves playing outside!

Betty and Billy will soon join their friends. Today is a fun day, a play day.... a day to be friendly and thankful!

Children need love and attention. Proverb 22:6 — Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

My name is Frederick

I am also part of the Stick family. In fact, I am the oldest of all the children. My name is Frederick Stick. I am handsome, responsible and friendly. And yes, I wear glasses, but that doesn't mean I cannot see all the wonderful and beautiful things around me. I can!!  I appreciate them all: the tiny flowers on green grass or beautiful clouds passing by.

My spirit soars whenever I am able to get out of the school and classroom and into nature, even if that nature is a cultivated field and even if I am witnessing it from inside a motor vehicle. I think I find my greatest joy outside the four walls of  a school, a house or any building.

I love my parents, my two sisters Samantha and Emily and my brother Sebastian. We all live happily together in Bronkhorstspruit.

Little Sister

People always think the youngest or the smallest child in a family is spoiled. I am not!! As the last-born in the family I usually end up with a pile of clothes from my older sister. Nothing new for me. People also think that when the youngest family member speaks, everyone listens. Incorrect. Everyone listens to the first-born, and listening power diminishes down the birth order. I am cursed with not being taken seriously, the "baby" of the family. Well, I am NOT a baby.

My name is Samatha Stick and I am a very social human being. Sebastian is my older brother and Emily my older sister. I love to make friends and I know all of them love me.

If you want to meet me in person, please contact my mommy. 

The Stone Family

I would like to introduce you to two members of the Stone Family. They are also happy kids like the Sticks. They often play together. They love their mommy and daddy and all their friends. They also love to go to school and to learn new things. I hope they will make you happy and fill your heart with long-forgotten dreams and wonderful childhood memories. 

This is Sibusiso Stone. He is on his way to visit his Granny who lives on the other side of the green hill. He is singing a song and enjoying the wonderful warm sun. His name means "blessing" and that is what Sibusiso is.

This is Sibusiso's sister. Her name is Sihle Stone. Sihle means "good". And that is what she is! Always smiling, always happy, always caring for others.

Would you like to share their joy? Please contact me.
