James and his Lego

James has always loved putting things together and taking them apart again and that's why he loves Lego so much.  I'm thrilled that at nine and a half he still loves playing with all his Lego and this week he has been at it before and after school putting together these two things.  The car has complete steering and the plane, well it's a plane and he asked me to take some photos so he could send them a picture and letter to Nanny and Pop in Melbourne.

Cubby House

On Sunday Sienna decided to make a cubby house in her room with some towels and pegs and set it up complete with disco ball, colouring pens and blankets.  She has been so thrilled with it that she hasn't been watching TV and playing in her cubby house in the mornings and afternoons.  She actually did her homework in there on Sunday.

James thought it seemed like a good idea so he made himself one at the end of his bed and had his turn of 30 mins on the iPad snug in his cubby house.  I took these photos of them in their home made cubby houses which makes me laugh.  I love it when kids are just being kids the old fashioned way.  Well James did have some technology with him at the time but given it's only 30 minutes I didn't mind.

Picture of James and Sienna this week

This week I managed to get a photo of James and Sienna around the side of the house in the early afternoon light.  Sienna was wearing her "100 days of school" hat from last week or the week before and James was happy enough for me to take a photo in between his skipping sessions.

Instagram Pictures

It's been a while since I posted some Instagram pictures so I thought I would go through them and pick some of my favourites.
