Rileys Homework!









Gosh! What a huge project for a 4 year old. It was to make a miniature garden ( to scale if possible - but we didnt do that bit, too complex for sure!) and a write up on what and why things were in your garden. Fortunately it was classed as "family" homework, otherwise he would have definately struggled. Weve been working on it all week in 5 minutes sessions as any longer he gets bored of it and loses interest. Anyway, here are the pics especially for my mum (who also roamed around her garden for little bits and bobs) and of course the lovely Terrie B who shares my passion for having poster paint under her nails - and that lovely scratchy feel it has - YUK! After we had finished Riley decided he wanted Buzz Lightyear to live in the shed. Mind you in his write up, he done a fab picture of me and him sitting on the bench watching the butterflies. Also, dont know if you can see it clearly on the photo, but he done the cutest drawing of a bee (its on one of the little blue circles)





The last picture is of the children this afternoon. Riley was frantically telling Poppi that they must put headbands, necklaces and bracelets on to protect them from "HIM" as "HE" might try and get them. It just begs the question - Who is HIM? Aaaw! bless them, they brighten my world and make me laugh every day without fail.
