L: This week my baby girl graduated from Kindy. It was such a lovely send-off to all the kids who were leaving to start school in September. Complete with caps, certificates and gifts! Although you've not had a very long time here, you had loved every minute of being there and adored your teacher. So special. Every day this week you also found yourself a snail buddy and had it "slug" all over your hands and arms... much to the amusement of teachers, parents and other kids. You and H were invited along to a birthday party for one of A's friends and had a ball playing, having your faces painted and henna tattoos drawn on.
A: I still look at you and marvel at just how big you are getting. But you are still so young and love playing and being a silly goose. You were delighted that we were finally going to be "in-town" for a birthday party you were invited to, as we've had to miss a couple previously! You had such a great time tearing around with your friends and having a ball. Makes my heart so happy to see you loving life and enjoying your lovely friends.
H: It is unlikely I will ever stop being fascinated by how different you all are from each other. This week you have brought a smile to my face many times with your realisation of words that sound or look the same but have different meanings. Some of the ones you've uncovered: saw (with your eyes) and saw (to cut a piece of wood), or know (to understand or have knowledge of something) and no (which sounds the same but means not/don't/negative/exclusion). Love the way your little brain works.
It's been a full week with lots of happiness.
