The Ladybird Nursery

Nursery finishes next week. Then there are only three weeks of holiday until next year begins. I love spending time with DD but I am dreading three long weeks in weather that is too hot for anything outdoors during the day. We'll go to town on the bus and have an ice-cream, we'll go to the library (although it also closes for two weeks), we'll have play-dates with water on the balcony, we'll go to the park in the early evening. And for three or four days in the middle we'll go down to visit our friends on their Kibbutz (with pool, animals, playgrounds, a fish pond and, best of all, wide open spaces for running around).

So I don't know why I'm dreading it so much but I am. I haven't even been able to write anything for the past few days. In the meantime, while I try and pull myself together, here are some pictures (taken by the nursery staff) of DD's amazing year at the Ladybird Nursery. I cannot express how much we have gained from this year (yes, me too). Thank you with all my heart Raheli, Linda, Na'ama, Tina, and Rutti. Now over to DD (in my own words :) )

Nursery is lots of fun!

I'm not sure about snakes

The birds are a bit fidgetty

We had a pyjama party!

On our picnic we played with a parachute

Painting is fun

I like riding the bimbas

In the spring we planted bulbs

I liked the birds on my head

We play games

I love Raheli my teacher

Cooking is great!
On Purim I dressed as an orange

I love the rabbit best


We had lollies at the pool party on the roof

Mummy was invited to my Birthday...
...and I sat on the special chair

  8. I am proud to say my oldest is the only child to have fallen into that fishpond - fully dressed in her best clothes one Rosh Hashana over a decade ago .. she is almost 13 now but the owners still remind her about it
