The weather has been almost entirely dismal this past week and I long for daylight. I am trying to be encouraged by the fact that in a few days we will pass the winter solstice and the slow march towards longer days will begin. It is hard leaving home in the dark and returning in the dark. A sunshine holiday would definitely be nice!
We had a drizzly visit to Gourock Park last weekend. Lukester wasn’t too deterred by the weather as he loves splashing in puddles:
This also includes with his hands!
The chickens were also amusing for Luke, though I was a bit concerned about him getting pecked as he is not shy about putting his fingers right through the fence:
Wet bottoms all round on the slides and swings!
Scott was more interested in hide and seek:
And, of course, football:Like his brother a few years ago, Luke was a little perplexed by the immovable “balls” 🙂
“Come on then..you want it? Come and get it!”
Last weekend, Scott also engaged in an unexpected cleaning frenzy. Dusting and cleaning glass was the new favourite pastime. It lasted a few hours, so I made the most of it!
This week has brought more Christmas events with Luke’s Christmas party at nursery:
And Scott’s p2 class singing for the p1 Christmas nativity:
Despite appearances (serious face in the photo), Luke does love a party. Any time music goes on, he starts to dance. I must also commit to my permanent memory the sound and image of Luke wandering about singing “Ally bally bee”. He must have been hearing this one at nursery and listening to his version is one of the cutest things ever! It is just as well he is cute as he is killing me slowly at night times again with his antics….
