In common and different

They are really different, but one thing they have in common, each pursues their own interests and follows them. Olivia is like a manager and her assertiveness has no boundaries. When I want to pick her up from the kindergarten, she first goes to all teachers to say goodbye with a handshake (I do not know where does it come from). The best is when we are talking about how to do something, she listens to everything and then she says, “You know what we do it this way …”.

Olivia is 4 years old

Olivia talked about her birthday since summer. She couldn’t wait till she would put four candles on her birthday cake, light them and blow them out. We celebrated together, with her friends, with the grandparents and finally in the kindergarten with cakes. Luckily, everyone has birthday only once a year :). Olivia got Cubetto (she calls him Kubo), a small robot to learn programming and improve spatial orientation in a funny way.

When there is a lot of snow

We planned to go somewhere for the winter holidays, but it snowed so much that we changed our minds. We are every day in our garden playing with shovels or sledding on the nearby hill. And I started introducing Olivia to skiing. First, in the garden just to learn balance on her own and then on the nearby slopes, but they seemed to be too steep. Then my friend recommended me a small ski resort for children.

Gym

I always try to take my children outside in any weather and every time I say we are going out they both rush to the door. But sometimes I just want to be at home, it’s raining, cold or dark early outside and then it is good to have a place where they can spend all their excess energy. So we made a gym in the basement. They can throw a ball there, slide, climb, boulder and chase each other.

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.

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.
