Crafty Sunday

Tarek spent all day building an insect hotel. First he assembled the parts and painted and varnished some of them. Then we all went for a nice long walk to find things to fill up the hotel with.

What’s  the logic of putting on a jacket when it rains? It’ll only get wet!

After Tarek filled the rooms with different materials he used clay to fill up the final one. And the result?

Pretty cool huh? Lets hope the insects agree. Afterwards we were all treated to a family favourite:

Lasagne a la Hein.
We kind of had to eat something very tomatoey because mum went crazy and bought a whole big box of tomatoes.

Testing a playground

Our parents have been keeping busy. They say we will move to a place called Boddegat and lots of other nice people will move there too. We have met many of those people and yes, they are nice. But where the 26 houses will be build is a bunch of trees now so we cannot move for a long time it seems. Today they took us to a place that’s like the Boddegat. They told us they wanted our opinion on the playground so we can get something similar for the Boddegat. We say yes to the homemade sandpit, big trampoline and of course we say YES to a waterpump!

We’re not sure our mum agrees because Miko stepped right into the pond that a created pumping, wearing her only pair of proper leather shoes. Pfff. The shoes were old anyway!
After the trip we had an improvised picnic lunch somewhere in Driebergen.

Long weekend pt III

On the third day of the long weekend we were together. We had an easy going day. A bike trip to Wageningen to buy plants and pots and then to the city farm and playground.

We picked flowers in front of the house, that’s Tareks new hobby. I join in if my mum allows me to cross the road. Which isn’t very often.

Today she said okay.

Long weekend pt II

On the second day of the long weekend, Tarek ran off to spend the day at a campsite with his friend Jasper and Jaspers family. Dad, mum and I were outside all day in the garden and on the allotment. Spinach for dinner, lets go home!
