In Character

Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back!

Tama 1 took a while to get into The Hobbit, but it's fun now having two kids enjoying The Hobbit and LOTR.

tama 1 as Gandalf

Tama 1, since becoming interested in JRR Tolkein has taught himself the Rune alphabet - but he tells me doesn't know the combinations "ee," "ea," st" and "ng."  Heck he knows a darn sight more than I would have bothered to learn, lol.

Tama 2 draws for tama 3

Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back!

We have a household who loves the movies Cars - yeah, yeah and Cars II, etc.  The DVDs get played and replayed so often I've grown accustomed to tuning out, lol.

One day, tama 2 decided he would draw Mack for tama 3.  To be honest, I don't remember if he ate breakfast that day.  If he did, it was lightning fast, ;)

Tama 2 was determined to get it done quickly, but as best as he could draw it.




 Tama 2 made a brilliant job.
His little brother thinks it's just the best thing!

History lesson through play

Nau mai, hoki mai and welcome back!

Having begun SOTW Volume 1 with tama 2 this year, we have tied in the Little Passports package on Egypt. 

It took a very, very long time to unearth the hidden treasure!  This was also a good lesson in
