Lilly has been learning the drums at school for over 3 terms now, without a real set to practice on. Thanks to her lovely cousin (and a small swap) Lilly has a set on loan. Yay, it’s good to finally see the outcome of the lessons we’ve been paying for. She’s pretty good too (well I think so).
The bonus is that they fit nicely in the corner of the spare sleepout, away from the house, without disturbing my design wall or the space I use for laying out quilts. Score !!!
Cameron was delighted with the drums too and I had a hard time convincing him that they weren’t for him. I might see if I can get him a miniature set for Christmas.
Cameron’s tractor. Simple yet effective. He has a great imagination. I’m not great at pretend play, but Ian and I are good with encouraging engineering. Cameron spends a lot of time building with Duplo. He scored some off Aunty Michelle when we visited a few months back. Not a flash set, just a whole lot of mismatched stuff. But I think that may have been the best kind to get. It never built anything specific so it is up to Cam as to what it turns into everyday. A lot of trucks, trains and planes, some houses. It’s provided many peaceful hours of play. I’m looking for some more, but will buy 2nd hand, so comes as another mixed set with no expectations to build a set project.
The piglets survived the night in the new home. It was a cold night to be away from the Sow, but they obviously kept each other warm, buried in the straw and ate a hearty breakfast. All is good.
