This has been the last week of summer holidays for Little O; he’s back to preschool tomorrow for three weeks, and then he starts his new preschool at the end of August (incidentally at the same time that we move into our new apartment – not the best timing…). We’ve been having some fun at home on the rainier days and catching up with people when the weather has played ball.
On Monday we did some crayoning (until it all turned bad and we ended up with crayon all over the tablecloth [sigh], then on Tuesday we did some shopping and found a bargain in the sales: great bed linen for the boys with cars on. On Wednesday, Little O demonstrated his great multitasking skills: reading a healthcare brochure while incorrectly wearing one shoe. (I really don’t know where he gets this obsession with shoes from…)
The next day we met up with friends at Rum För Barn, the free play area at Kulturhuset. They have changed one of the rooms there and it now contains a pirate ship to play on. This was so exciting for Little O as we have been talking about pirates these past few days, and he got to be a pirate captain. Ahoy there!
On Friday, my cousin and his girlfriend arrived and we watched the opening ceremony. Many, many people have said many things about it, expressed far better than I could, so all I have to add is that it made me feel so proud of my little country at that moment (there might or might not have been a few tears during Jerusalem…). Didn’t we put on a great show?
The weather was great again yesterday, so I got out my new sales purchase: white jeans. Am I made wearing white jeans when running around after two small children? Most likely, but I love them.
And that brings me to today. This morning, Little O broke into the one room he knows he’s not meant to go in as there dwelleth a multitude of packing boxes. Luckily, he only found a BBC History magazine, and we had fun looking through that for trains. Unfortunately, the issue was heavily on Elizabethan history, so no luck on the locomotive front!
