Always exploring. Here they are watching a large bird taking flight. Andrew has developed a great passion for births and loves to share his knoweldge.
Andrew has been learning a lot about birds. We have several books from the library and we have started to watch a few documentaries by David Attenborough. We feel very fortunate to have found this guy! His are the only documentaries Andrew (and Massimo sometimes) would watch, because the Disney ones, or others documentaries, feel too intense and they create to much suspence. The children do not watch television and they have wathed only one cartoon so far, and on very few occasions: “Kipper the dog”. They are thus very sensitive to any stimuli created by anything they may see on a screen. Andrew is very grounded on what he would watch and there were a few cartoons that had passed my scritining that Andrew would still choose not to watch; and he was right because to see things by his point of view, they were intesnse (it is difficult something to learn to discern but I am always very impressed by the confidence and groundness of Andrew). So we are very careful in choosing what to show our kids in the few occasion we show them something; but documentaries are something we thought to start and were very glad to find Allenborough; Andrew is learning a great deal from him, listening and remembering almost everything (with an attention to details that surprises me – hey I am the mom, I can talk this well about my kids).
And the other two… they just follow their leader and are full of confidence and something clever to say or some important question to ask.
