Birds and ladybugs

A new school year started and Olivia finally became a kindergarten kid. Although she long longed for this moment, it took her a while to get used to a greater number of children and related noise, but now she is going to the kindergarten with enthusiasm, she brings home lots of drawings every day and she tells us what everything they did there. She also likes the music education they have.

Forest playground

In a small town Pöring, near to us, there is a large playground on the edge of the forest. I like it very much because it’s all in a pleasant shade of trees and you can play there even when it’s hot outside or raining lightly. There is something for everyone and it’s a favorite place for birthday parties or just for a picnic. The best thing is that the children go home completely tired every time:)

Vychylovka and Stará Bystrica

When the weather is bad, you need to find a place where it’s better and so we made a trip from Stefanova, immersed in clouds, to the historical forest railway and open-air museum of Kysuce village in Vychylovka. Our children were enthusiastic about the train, sheep and playgrounds and we enjoyed “živánska” in a local restaurant :) And after a pleasant walk among the wooden houses we stopped in Stara Bystrica to see the only astronomical clock in Slovakia.

Vrátna valley

We wanted to eat some proper slovak food specialties like halušky, pirohy and šúľance, relax and relish the nature and so we made a culinary trip to Štefanova in Vrátna valley. We made a trip to a cottage on Grúň and under Chleb and on every trip we found a playground or sheep, so our children were more than satisfied.

Dominik can walk

Dominik began to walk. He has already started doing the first steps about a month ago, but now he can walk longer, he tries it more often and he enjoys it more than crawling. Olivia likes to hold his hand and to walk with him and every time I pick him up, she reminds me that I can put him down because he is able to walk alone. Beside walking, he likes climbing the stairs, sliding and he can ride his toddler balance bike and he has already learned to control it.

Blond

Our small dark tan Dominik with blond hair and dark eyes is one year old. A week ago I would write that he is toothless, but now I discovered two teeth on the right side (not in the front as usual), and if another two same teeth grow on the other side, he will look like a vampire :). He likes walking and pushing a chair and he is able to push it even when Olivia sits on it.

In movement

Dominik is in that wonderful age when everything fascinates him and when he sees something new (i.e. the cows in the stable) he is able to watch it intently with a wide-open mouth. He also points his finger at everything, he likes playing with a ball (he tries to throw it over himself stretching his arms out or he rolls it enthusiastically through a Lego tunnel), he spents a lot of time in Olivia’s kitchen and he is fascinated by everything that does something i.

Daily news

Dominik stands wherever possible, he stands up even though there is nothing to hold. And then he tries to get back down on the floor and he doesn’t like when he fells down. He likes playing in the sand and examining our garden and I’m very pleased that he doesn’t put everything he finds in his mouth anymore. On Olivia’s request, they sleep together in one room and it seems like they both enjoy it.

3 years old

Olivia is already a big girl and she’s going to school. In the morning, she’ll play there and she’ll learn to write, because she can already read and in the afternoon mommy picks her up. She keeps saying everyone that she is three years old and she shows on her fingers how much it is. We celebrated twice; once privately with a creamy berry cake and an easel and once with Olivia’s four friends (2.
