What we’ve been up to this Summer…

Rainbow dominoes have been adorning our coffee table. Winding paths, going up, down and around. The moment when you accidentally knock them too early, and the anticipation as you set them off as planned…

Little Miss caring for her ‘sick’ brother, asking how he feels and offering band aids… always band aids! I’ve never met someone so in love with first aid supplies *grin*

Whimsical homes for peg dolls and gnomes. Listening to Dino Boy create stories around them. He sets up puppet shows like at kindergarten, singing ‘puppet show is in the town, everyone gather round‘ ~ who can resist?

Whirling marbles spinning through our beautiful wooden marble run. The patience of working together to create, testing as we go, followed by the reward of a finished run

Homemade goodies being played with happily, mingled together with other toys. Listening to Little Miss as the animals and dolls chatter and play… one of the most special remnants of play to find!

There can never be too much block play… I watch them piece together the shapes in different formations, looking for the colour spilling through. Making boats, houses, towers and all sorts of other wonderful things

Climbing, running, exploring a wonderful new park to enjoy, as I sip my chai latte *grin*

Watching them both gain more and more confidence as they run ahead of me, trying new things, but checking back in for that reassuring smile…

And quiet time, at the end of the day, as we get ready for rest. We read books of summer and enjoy each others company

Have have you enjoyed the season?

Warmly, Kelly

    What a very caring sister. The children have beautiful toys to play with. I love Freya Blackwood illustrations. Is that park from another planet? It’s amazing!

    I adore those rainbow dominoes, did you make them yourself?

    It’s lovely to see some glimpses of summer, as I’m stuck in Northern winter.

    Wow, what a playground. Pity it is in Canberra at the National Arboretum, not here in Melbourne. We will plan a trip to Canberra just to explore this park!
