I think it was the time to concentrate on my children. Their abilities & enjoy their personalitlies. Teach them and listen to them - really listen ... every time. The idea of this is what really made time out appealing. The chance to spend the full 2 minutes cleaning their teeth , helping them dive, answering questions about why ninjas spin?.
this has been a wonderful experiment? experience?
but today I can hear myself and am thinking "give them a break!"
they can sort it out ( may the victor emerge from the room unscathed)
10 minutes of no sudden movements ( me sketching hidden from view in a corner of the garden)
peace is restored.... or did they fight to the death? at this point the silence is golden & the water lilly sketched
Just a shame I didn't have a proper pencil
nts ** I had been snapping shots of the emerging lillies.
It turns out noah was too.
His shots are of leaves and water
