Winter has arrived in Sydney. It’s been windy, cold and wet. My kids have muted their cries to go and play outdoors. It must really be windy, cold and wet! While I scan the skies for a sunny patch of sky (or dry pavement in our grassless garden), we’ve immersed ourselves with indoor play.

Here’s my favourite Instagram of the Week. I’ve started to explore drawing with one of my four year old sons. I love that he enjoys drawing, (even if it’s only for five minutes). I look forward to many shared drawing sessions.

While we’re wrapped up in our Winter woolies over here, I can’t help but notice that many of you are having a ball of a time enjoying Summer. (Wooly bound me mutters, “There is a time for everything.”) Living vicariously through our northern hemisphere friends, here are some great Summery posts from last week’s Weekly Kids’ Co-op:
