Summer Days

The days are passing quickly. Time is a wicked creature. Our dear Sophia Penelope turns three years old on July 18th. Below is documentation of how we’ve been spending our summer days.

And she’s got a balance bike!

The male and female capybaras have escaped at the High Park Zoo! We hope they return home safely. Thanks to @travisdhanraj at CP24 for the fun interview, and for listening to where Sophia thinks the capybaras are…”in the barn.”

We love how loose parts encourage imaginative play. This is a town created by Sophia, with a barn for the animals, trucks that are digging around, and a bridge that helps cars get up and down the mountain. Oh, and Jelly Bunny is in a dress.

“Loose parts, natural or synthetic, are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart, and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials…they empower our creativity and imagination.” #openendedplay

This mud kitchen. Our hearts are so grateful and we are in love with it! It is just perfect for us, and we can’t thank Joe enough for his time and effort in building it for Sophia.
