It’s week 32 of project 365 and I thought I’d missed a couple of days. But turned out that I hadn’t – obviously a couple of photos snuck in there at the last minute. Phew.
Before the rain arrived this weekend, it’s been lots more good weather, so plenty of outdoor play again.
Sunday we went to Warwick Castle. N’s favourite thing was probably rowing the viking ship in the horrible histories section.
Monday saw N’s stripping off in the garden. Child naked on a trampoline isn’t what I’d particularly want to see, but N seems quite relaxed about roaming starkers.
Tuesday and N was climbing up next to the sink to ‘clean’ it, one of his favourite tasks.. He’s started climbing on the table and work surfaces. No idea why.
Wednesday, N actually decided to help me water the tomato plant jungle. Probably because I was filling the watering can from his paddling pool rainwater collection.
Thursday I took this photo of N pottering in the garden. I can’t believe how slim he looks here. I wouldn’t say he is a slim child, but he’s definitely growing up and losing what podge he had. Today a staff member in M&S asked him if he was at school. I wouldn’t say he’s particularly tall, so not sure what she was thinking, but maybe I’m too close and he does look older than I think?
Friday, N’s been getting out the phonics magnetic letters I bought him a while back. He doesn’t want to learn the phonics or the letters, just fill in the wipe board with all the letters. Oh, and pick out letters that are in his name. He doesn’t know the sound of them, just what they look like. It’s going to be a long slog with N and letters I think.
Saturday we spent the afternoon at Brailes Show. We ambled, we watched and joined in the activities and just generally enjoyed being at the show. N however, just wanted food all day. It was ridiculous the amount he ate. I agreed to a cake from the WI refreshments, and he carried it all the way out from the hall to somewhere to sit by the main arena to eat it. He was so careful, it was like it was a ring on a cushion!
