Turn that frown upside down

Did you know it takes 22 muscles to smile compared to a huge 37 to frown.
So think, by just smiling you'll be conserving energy!!

We've been practising our faces here. I believe getting kids to play around with their facial expression can really help kids. It allows them to see emotion, show them other ways to express themselves......instead of having to rely on their voices or their fists)

Giving them the chance to see you make faces, and allowing them to pull their own faces is equally important. Sitting in front of the mirror and talking about what faces might mean what and making a game of it. It's fun and your kids can  learn so much about reading reading people and conserving energy at the same time!

Here's a few of our fav's. Can you read the emotion?

It's been a while since I've blogged.
Since the death of my friend I found myself in bit of a funk. I found myself doing a lot of thinking, both forward in time and back. This constant thinking has occupied most of my head, hence not much left for blogging! Team that with  two weeks school holidays spent exploring Melbourne and a family drama unfolding, the blog has been neglected..........but I'm back!

So here's a quick pictorial to keep us up to date!!

lots of time spent playing with new birthday presents

sharing special times with friends

getting hands on in Melbourne

enjoying the simple things

connecting with dreams

taking our 'promise'

enjoying the beauty in nature
see you soon!

Memories in music

Fotos del muro
Have you ever heard a song and been taken back in time??
Today I heard on the radio  'Informer' by Snow and it was like I was back in high school.
Amazing how one piece of music an do that!

Has this ever happened to you? What were you listening to at school?
