Now that our little monkey is happy again and the weather was pleasantly sunny (though freezing!), we made good use of the afternoon having serious fun in the back garden with bubbles and later inside with ball catching.
bubbles are meant to be stomped

Ellie taking seriously Papa's advice that she watch the ball carefully
While we're on the subject of afternoon fun, a few weekends ago, Ellie got her first kite, which we took for a test run on the Malieveld (big grassy field) near our house. After she and Papa got it high into the air, she was so proud to hold the string herself and control her kite on her own. "By self" is very important these days, and handling the kite independently was extra joy for her (watching her little proud expression was extra joy for us).
Hope you all are having a great weekend!
