Circus Fun

Last week we headed down to Dwellingup for a little break and to help out with a group of Sudanese refugees on a special camp. Their theme for the children's group was the circus so Paul went to help out with some circus skills and I chased Samuel around!!

The kids had a great time camping (pretend camping in a chalet) and joining in the fun activities. They even got to perform in the concert. Liam was a little(ok a lot) stage shy but he eventually got up and did some tricks with his Dad which is huge for him.

Liana as usual had no problem getting up and performing. Plus she got to get her face painted by the awesome Morris Jacobs!

The highlight of our holiday for Liam had to be the train. We were staying right near the Hotham Valley Steam Trains. We got there just after the train finished for the day, but we got to check out the train and have a play with the points and other technical thingies that I have no idea about. Good thing Paul knows what he is talking aboout!

Tot School - Red

Tot School
Samuel is 20.5 months

After a looong break from totschool we are back! For the next few weeks we are learning about colours. Last week we did red. Here are some of the things Samuel did.

We went on a red treasure hunt and collected as many red things as we could find in the toy room.

We threaded red pasta onto red pipecleaners.

We used our dot markers to paint a page of red things,

and we painted our RED page.

We did a contact paper collage of red materials.

Samuel coloured in his red minit. book.

And we used our red pom pom magnets to play with the do a dot page.

The older two are learning about the rainforest so Samuel decided to join in and help paint a box for their rainforest model. Not red, but good fun anyway!!

Nothing like sitting in the weeds ahh, flowers for some morning tea.

And my favourite photo of the week, My two little cheeky boys!
