Beautiful art

Things are mostly going well here with us. Bianca still has a cough, but it doesn't seem to get any worse, so for now we're just keeping a bit of an eye on it. I can't believe that it's nearly school holiday time and I also can't believe that Bianca's been at school for more than 6 weeks already and this afternoon Terence and I met with Bianca's teacher to discuss her progress. We are so impressed with how well she is doing. We are still feeling so amazed at the fact that Bianca is actually able to go to school, I find it so amazing how she suddenly picks up on all sorts of different words and things.

Then this evening we went to the Art Festival at Bianca's school and they had the most beautiful artwork on display. We saw two of Bianca's pieces and we are so proud of her!

This one is about Red Riding Hood

Here they had to try and draw their self-portraits.

Caitlyn has now sort of learned to count. When we start counting as she goes up or down the stairs in our house we will go "one" and she will then say "twooo" and then "wee" and it is so funny when we get to "eight" she will then say "nine". She has now also started saying two words together and this morning she said "bye cool" (bye school) as we dropped Bianca off. Bianca likes it that I drop her off and then she walks up the path to her classroom, of course I stay there on the path, watching until she is inside her classroom (even though it is really just a few metres, but still - I'm not quite ready to do the whole drop off and go kind of thing). This morning Caitlyn wasn't too impressed as she wanted to go with Bianca to drop her off at her class.
