Back by popular demand (yes, really).. here is some more of the children’s art.
Cormac (the 3 year old) is in what Montessori refers to as a ‘sensitive period’ right now, and it is for cutting shit up with scissors. Everywhere we are finding vandalism and little scraps of things.
This one is quite nice because it ended up looking like origami. It was a school notice I had not yet read.
Cormac must be doing a lot of ‘parallel line’ work at Montessori, too (ie. an exercise to teach kids how to be able to write) because I found him practicing them on paper towels at home.
Lauca (the 7 year old) really likes to practice drawing techniques like those you see illustrating children’s books at the moment. She’s quite interested in cartooning, so it’s all quite stylised at the moment and with storylines.
This is our family, I know, we’re so nuclear.
Views of our kitchen garden.
My sister has moved back here with her partner to have their first baby. I’m very excited.
And they’re renovating their house. Poor things.
Last weekend we went with some friends to wander about in the vegetable gardens of strangers. We found it quite amusing but the kids were bored silly. Oh kids, I can recall about a billion weekends just like this growing up, where we tramped about looking at boring stuff our parents apparently found interesting. Tradition.
