Ted thoroughly enjoyed the light table. It would be amazing to be able to make one!
Maya, our amazing Maya, did a theatre camp all week. It was her first experience of organised theatre, and it was hard going – all day, every day, with some evenings to boot! She was tired, but she enjoyed it and even made some new friends – and at the end of the week we got to see not one, but two performances of ‘The Brothers Lionheart’ by Astrid Lindgren…

The boy with the hat is Maya’s old childhood friend Ludvig, who she did the camp with. In the last picture they’re being given roses by the camp leaders. 🙂
This week Alfie (our entomologist) continued his study of bugs. Having moved on from snails and dung beetles, woodlice and ants have taken their place…

We were very excited too, to see that the caterpillars that we found in the tree had turned in to small butterflies…

Of course, as the weather got better, there’s been beach trips…

Yesterday Grandad and Arun went home, and today we leave for ten days in France, where we’ll be staying in the summer house of Mormor (english grandmother) and Patu. ☀️
See you soon! 😉
