One day after school this week Ruby, Lottie and I took a trip to the local park and had a lot of fun, I really feel that since Ruby has started school I don't actually get to spend that much time with any more, we seem to be in such a strict routine of get up, go to school, come home, have an hour together before dinner, bath and then bedtime. I'm really looking forward to next week as it is half term and I get to have Ruby back, but I'm not sure I will want to send her back to school after the week off. I miss her a lot when she's at school.
Whilst walking back from the park, Ruby suggested we collected some things for an Autumn picture; we collected several different colour leaves, sticks and even found a conker.
Ruby was very excited to get out the glue and do some art and craft to make an autumn picture. I drew a very basic outline of a tree and she cut and tore up the leaves before placing them onto the tree. For the trunk of the tree, she placed the sticks on it.
Ruby had a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyed doing her autumn picture; here is the end result.
