Every so often Little H’s school sends home a “Home learning challenge” to complete over the weekend. This week we had to go and look for mini-beasts, so we headed down to the woods to do some exploring.
Little H had great fun lifting up logs and rocks with Daddy and finding bugs – while I stood a safe distance away! It was nice to see her getting stuck in, as she’s normally a complete girly girl, and screams when even so much as a moth goes near her. (No idea where she gets that from!)
It was great to hear about the things she’s been learning at school, especially as it’s normally impossible to get any kind of information out of her about what they get up to. She was telling us all about cocoons, bees, and bugs camouflaging themselves.
After a week cooped up at work and school, and a few days of rain, it was nice to get some fresh air and for Little H to run around and explore.
On the way back to the car we even found a fairy tree, which Little H was convinced was the Elf Tree from Ben & Holly. I love the fact she’s not yet growing out of believing in things like this, especially as I’m feeling a little bit emotional right now about my baby turning 5 in a few weeks!
I took lots of photos for her school project, but this sneaky one was one of my favourites. I love the concentration and interest on her little face. Shame a photo can’t show her rabbiting away about bugs and creepy crawlies!
Hope you’ve all had a good weekend and the rain has held off!
