Living Arrows – 12/52

Living Arrows – 12/52
There is a lot of learning going on at nursery that we only hear about indirectly. This week the new game in the playground has obviously been hide and seek. Theo’s counting is still hilarious (8, 4, 7, 9, TEN!) But he’s obviously keen to give this new game a go and when we went on a walk in the woods yesterday afternoon every tree was a surface to hide his face against and practice the routine, though to be honest I’m still not sure you are supposed to jump out at the end and say “Boo!”

His nursery is such a magical place, staffed by such lovely people, I honestly don’t know how we (or he) got so lucky, but we are blessed that he’s growing up in such an exciting and happy environment.

My little boy goes to a childminders and always surprises us with the new things he’s learnt from them. They really are little sponges aren’t they? The photo is beautiful, there is something beautiful about photographs of children interacting with nature.

My 3yo daughter started nursery in January, just afternoons. She loves spending time with lots of other children. We don’t love that her vocab has changed for the worse though. When she started, the staff commented on her speech and vocab, which is quite advanced. Within a week, she came home calling dolls “dollies”, dogs “doggies”, cats “kitties” and has now developed the idea that colours are gender specific. I’m seriously considering removing her from nursery – not keen on her going backwards!

I love it when they do not fully grasp hide and seek. My little boy literally snuggles on the sofa and declares he has hidden, when he is actually in full blown view of everyone! So sweet.. Gorgeous photo by the way xx

Lovely picture and story behind. My son started nursery a month ago and always surprised us with lots of new words and songs, I found it equally cute and scary knowing there’s a little part of his life where we are not there, but that’s life and it’s part of a growing journey.
