We went on our first school visit today, to Montessori @ Home. It was just to see the facilities and to chat with the teachers so all the children had already left when we were there. Grace took a short while and then settled down to exploring some of the toys and equipment that they had, and in the end we spent quite a bit of time playing on the jungle gym outside while Donné chatted to the principle.
Long walks in the ergo, walks to the dam with a little splash, lots of food, swinging, playing with the pigs, eating ice cream cones with melted chocolate and marshmallows – that’s what camps are made of.
Today is our first camping day as a family, and other than a bit of stress through the getting going part we’re doing well. After finally eating something Grace was a star and went straight to sleep, absolutely knackered from the day. Tomorrow we’ll actually take some photos…
It is nice to come home to my family. When I have been out for a day and I come home, Grace is usually hanging on the gate excitedly calling, “Daddy, daddy!” before I have even gotten out of the car. I love coming home to my little girl and my wife – I am blessed to have them.
