On Wednesday, Rebekah had her first P1 Sports Day. Since London is hosting the Summer Olympics, Sunnybank had an Olympics theme, and each child was on a team that represented a country. Sadly, no US team, but Rebekah did get Spain. One of the main tenets of the play-based system here is a total lack of passivity, meaning every child should be actively participating at all times. Thus, they did a great job of stations and keeping the kids moving. All the kids seemed to really enjoy it. I, of course, made a lot of preparations to attend during Lizzie’s nap time, only to have my battery die because I forgot to charge it. Oh well- you get the idea of how it went…Rebekah was a burst of colour on a grey, cold, Aberdeen day. That pretty much sums it up!
Many thanks to Michelle for the best pics and for running with my daughter when I left!
I loved Lizzie’s little hands and toes here…I have already put away this seat because she is crazy-good at flinging herself out of it. Sigh. However, she is a pretty firm sitter most of the time, so we don’t really need it. Lizzie is an amazing eater- so much so that nursing is not her preference anymore. The more grown-up and textured the food, the better! Meal time is usually pretty happy for her unless it’s not coming fast enough! She’s hilarious. Today was one of the first times I heard her chattering in her bed instead of crying when she woke up after a nap. Regardless, she almost always just lights up when she hears the door open and sees a loved face. She is definitely fun to feed, hold, and get up! Definitely feisty, but such a doll.
