Summer School

Here's Daisy with an extensive set-up fanning out from the piano.


At its heart, the Composer's giant German-English dictionary. Don't ask me why.


Perhaps you should ask Daisy why.


Why is she teaching German to the sock monkeys: when she doesn't even speak it herself?


A good question.


She'll never tell.

Oh my, it reminds me of my own childhood, when I was teaching all kinds of things to my plushies and to animals drawn on the paper tubes that come in the core of toilet paper... because I didn't have enough plushies to make for a whole class.
Thank you for this. It's the perfect thing to see in this cloudy, grey day, before I go to church...

So fresh, so sweet... great photography too

Libby said...

Oh, but her facial expression is wonderful while "speaking" her newly found language. :-)

Sarah said...

So cute! :)

Lisateresa said...

Why, she's teaching it to them because they're so willing to learn it, of course.........do you see how attentive they are?

Holly Marie said...

So sweet! Daisy reminds me in so many ways of my own little sisters. It brought a smile to my face to see her innocent and imaginative playing.

Joy said...

Gosh, she looks so grown up all of a sudden!
Your writings are inspiring to me and I thank you so much.

Ahhh Daisy and I are kindred spirits. I taught all my dolls and teddies all sorts of things. I now wonder why my parents never encouraged me into teaching. And perhaps that is now why I'm studying to be a Teacher Assistant.

Oh for the blissful days of teaching teddies. They never argue back and they're such good learners!

Lovely to have Giles' photos back :)
