Being realistic about screen timeJune 6, 2019
This evening Adam sat, pajama clad, perched on one of my knees, turning my ankle underneath it uncomfortably, but I wasn’t about to move. His fingers traced the un-illustrated words on the screen gripped by the description of the ninja’s that were moving towards our heroes. As a parent I knew I was going against so much medical advice but I wasn’t about to change a thing.
United Kingdom PackMay 31, 2019
Some packs I choose, and others choose us. We’ve not been in the UK since March but Adam had reason to revisit those memories at at his morning nursery group and so I made up a United Kingdom Preschool pack to follow through the theme at home.
This pack covers various aspects from the double-decker buses, phone boxes and Queen at the tower of London to more specific aspects – the town crier of Wells and the crescent houses of Bath. It also has a couple of pages about Old London Bridge which inspired the nursery rhyme.
I’ve not got photo’s of this pack in action sadly. though most pages are inspired by either books we’ve read or places we’ve seen.
The sourceMay 23, 2019
The words are akin to old friends, faintly resonating with faded sermon points and plastic chair discussions, steeped in theology lectures and justified talk-points. This weary book has seem many days and it’s battered cover shows the scars of it’s journey. Yet, inside, the words shine bright back on the thin white sheets, words of promise, a treaty to unlock a lens of understanding, a viewpoint for the world beyond it’s pages.
