Spring has sprung!
It has been such a gorgeous day here, I'm picking 25 degrees celcius - unusually warm for this time of year. The sort of day that makes you realise that you really should slop on the sunscreen and find last year's (too small) sunhats.
We spent the day outside, playing, yakking, exploring.
The kids love the obstacle course at preschool, which consists of lots of bits of fancy coloured steel that snap together in limitless ways to create bridges, beams, monkey bars etc. Today we made our own version together, using a tunnel, a plank of decking timber, Caleb's old cot mattress and the swingset. Lots of problem-solving, trial and error putting it together (and stopping the tunnel from blowing away) and literally hours of fun!
Soph would have liked it to have been a bit more complicated, but Caleb (just turned 2) still hasn't quite mastered some of the physical skills necessary, such as jumping with both feet, so we'll have to keep it simple for now.
Dinner was on the deck again tonight - bliss!
