One of most interesting features of human beings I've been musing over this week is our ability to learn and grow. The biggest of all these is the astonishing progression of language in children. I know the logic and reason behind speech development - but the reality is simply amazing. For babies- the transition from making noises to that of voicing words and then to join those words into real communication holds true wonder for me. God is amazing in his creations.
My children are in Year 1 & 2 at primary school and are learning the art of writing and expressing themselves on paper.
I love it. Little B is experimenting with poetry.
R is a more reluctant writer - even though she is very advanced in her reading she doesn't currently have the excitement in writing that B has. It's funny, with their characters (and the contentious boy / girl thing) I thought it would be the other way around. But no, they are who they are. I endeavour to make games and constantly encourage writing of any kind on the weekend... She instigated writing a short letter to 'Granny' this week (my heart melts).
I looked at my past couple of blog posts and I think I'm gonna try things a little differently. My aim is to do shorter blog posts a little more frequently. I think my last couple posts have been rather long and a shorter format may work better for readers and for me trying to fit blogging into my life. As I say, we are all constantly living and learning. I'll give it a try....
