Going on a letter hunt…
Eliza is currently learning her alphabet at nursery, so when we’re out and about she’ll stop at every car registration plate or street sign and point out “my letter….Florence’s letter…Daddy’s letter” and so on. It’s a great way to kill time on slow days (not so great on the days when we actually have somewhere to go, though).
It’s actually quite fun, finding letters in the wild – I think as an adult you don’t really see things you look at all the time, but as a child you realise that all these things you see are actually these things you’re learning about…and they are all around you.
So I’ve started taking photos of her journey of letter discovery and will be putting them on Instagram with the #theelizabet hashtag. At the moment, as the two photos testify, it’s not so much an A-Z as an A-E, but we’ll get there.
I thought it would also capture an insight into our days in the wonderful ‘summer’ that required sunglasses and flipflops along with knitwear.
