Super Powers

Well this half term has been a very busy and cold one.  As you can see we did brave the cold and go down to the coast for an afternoon which was lovely as a family.  As it was Valentines day we choose to visit a place me and Mr JRT  used to come to quite a lot before we had additions. It was so nice to introduce Madison and Jasper (all be it what he could see from his cosy toes)  to Westgate , exploring the sea shore, rock pools and the sandy beach collecting lots of shells on the way.

However the uninviting weather did put us off spending a lot of time outside so we enjoyed a couple of cosy days baking,  painting and book creating. I will be the first to admit that i am absolutely rubbish at making up stories but can tell them in a way that keeps the children's imagination forever blossoming.  However Mr JRT is fantastic at this and he dose this in such a way that you can remember them. As Madison proved one day this week she and I sat down one afternoon whilst Jasper was asleep and wrote a mini book. I was thinking she would base it on an interest she has which currently Barbie ..........Nope !!

She sat down next to me and said "I want to write about Diarra The Dragon!" . Well I had never heard about a book called Diarra the Dragon but this is when it all came out about my Husbands Super ability to make up stories and this was one of them.

( Madison's version of Daddy's story)

" Diarra said the clouds have fallen"

" He went to tell owl"

" Owl said it's snow!"

A fantastic keep sake and a great achievement for Madison.

Looking forward to some family time tomorrow with all my special people.

Have a great weekend
