Beep, (my granddaughter) and I, are spending her school vacation days together, (July and August, weekdays, from 9:30 until 3:30), while mom and dad are at work.
There is no TV allowed at gramma's house during the day, no movies, dvd's or videos. Electronic use is limited to an occasional hour or two on her iPad that we gave her as a "passing present". She is going into grade 5 in September!
We have quite the agenda! Arts and crafts, including designing and constructing our faerie houses, sewing lessons, learning photography basics, and cursive writing (which they no longer teach in the schools here). We have to spend a little time on math and spelling tutoring as well.
(That's a Canada Day wash off "tattoo" on her cheek)
And then there is physical fitness. Did you know that the average child in North America spends less that 3 hours a week engaging in any physical activity, and merely an hour a week outdoors! So, part of every day is outdoor time, skipping, hoola hooping, hopscotching, gardening, feeding the squirrels, (centre photo), and nature walks.
Ergo, gramma has a lot less time for photography, being on the internet, and a lot less energy as well! I won't be posting as often over the next two months, and I may not be able to visit and comment on as many blogs as usual. Not to worry, Pixel Posts will be back to "normal" in September.
