“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.”
This little man is a superhero through and through. Not a single day goes by that we don’t find him in a costume. Sometimes three, sometimes four and sometimes, like in the photo above, he does a mashup and wears his Batman cape with his Antman costume. His whole persona changes when he is in costume and he is tickled when he gets to wear it out of the house to collect Ollie from school!
Ollie is devouring books these days at quite a rate! He loves them and it’s something we are trying hard to foster in him so he gets a good lot of reading time before bed every night. He had some Amazon vouchers left from Christmas so we went online and he got the next Diary Of A Wimpy Kid book (the 3rd is the one he is on), the 2nd Tom Gates book and the first Percy Jackson book. He was so excited when they arrived.
Nate got a new Playdoh set this week… Playdoh Pizza and it’s really cool! It comes with little moulds to make all the toppings (broccoli, mushrooms, olives, bacon, tomatoes, onions etc) and has a squeezy tool to make the cheese and even comes with it’s own little pizza box. He would play with Playdoh for hours undistracted so we stockpile the tubs when they’re on offer. Oh and of course, he is in a superhero costume again.
Ollie’s current school topic is World War Two and he loves it. He is currently working on a project on it that needs handed in this week and so far he hasn’t complained about this homework at all. It includes a page each on things like rationing, women in the war, evacuations, shelters and gas masks. At the end of the project he is including some pages on his own family in the war. He was lucky enough to interview his great Grandma over skype and ask her questions about when she was evacuated etc and his Grandma was able to fill him in on her side of the family too. He had relatives who fought, flew bomber planes and who worked in munition factories. Very cool.
