Considering the amount of posts i’ve done today, its really been a very positive day.
Js has been here, playing with Josie and Amelie at various Happy Street, Lego type things
Before she even got here, all the big three had launched into Bob the Builder flowers, which they did such a nice job on and were quite obscenely proud of!
Then Maddy and i did her story, while Fran was… hmm… not entirely sure, it was something industrious though, which felt nice. Maddy got a big kick out of her storyboard and followed it up with the picture of a flower growing, which she did entirely off her own bat; i loved the way she sectioned it off to show time passing. She is SUCH a different girl to Fran!
Fran and i spent some time on the beginnings of a scrapbook of postcards; she got them all sorted into sensible sets and then we did a page on Edinburgh and Stirling Castle. She did some great writing.
I think more lego and some dvds happened then, while i started trying to sort out the desktop, the aim being to hand that mainly over to them. I’m gonig to clear off my email and web stuff from it so i don’t get drawn to it through the day, even if its on for them to use (as it mostly has been recently, Ammi is very much into software and both the others love to do Studydog still.)
Fran decorated her box house (don’t ask, she’s asleep in it!) with a variety of flags all stuck to lollysticks, Maddy was very busy at something else and 578 photos uploaded on to Flickr later, it was tea time. Oh yes, and Maddy and i started Dave the Duck’s diary. That’s all her own writing there!
Tonight has been mainly trying to settle Josie off a bit earlier (failed) more flickr-ing, the start of Olga-da-Polga (finished The BFG, made me cry) and some serious and much needed discussion.
I loved this:
How different are my big two?!?!?!
