Some things I didn’t tell you…

Lately I’m so busy with my career as a Mother and with my students to whom I’m teaching arts that I completely forgot to share with you some nice moments from our last travel to Vilnius.

Yes, it was super short but still it was opportunity to see my parents and my siblings.

Also Rodrigo had two concerts at Karalienės Mortos mokykla, a school that has been innovating a lot in terms of education and how they work with their kids. Both concerts were full of engaged students quite curious to learn more about the didgeridoo.

He also met Ūdros Vaikai, a duo that uses the mouth harp as their main instrument, blending it with poetry and other instruments. They devised some music together to present it in a unique concert and we do hope to collaborate more in the future.

Some new things that I learnt from last journey to Vilnius:

1. In the plane, as a 2 year old, Markus doesn’t receive life jacket but also being such a small kid he still can’t fit in an adult jacket.  The same with the belts… is it only me who thinks about having a “medium size” or something like that ;-)? It would be suitable for older than 2 years old kids but younger than 10 years. Or maybe it could be regulated by kilos and high of kid… lets say if you are bigger then 1.5m then you get adult size, if smaller you would use “medium size” …..

2. I can’t make happy all my family and friends… It’s just impossible!! So I learnt that best way to see all or at lease those who are available it s my husband’s concerts! !!

3. It s super nice to see how my kid is adapting to new places and people! Let’s do it again!!!

CRAFTY WEEK!!

Last week was messy and busy as we like!

We started the week with a project “colorful clouds” that I found in one little project. It contains only stuff that you normally have at home (unless your dad has a stylish beard as ours and doesn’t use shaving foam). Results are unexpected and beautiful!!!

We tried “Penny Spinners”. It s super fast and fun small project and you can learn how to make it here.

Lately Markus is insisting to have my glasses so I thought to make ones for him from a eggs box???. And even though he enjoyed the process of making them ,,,but not to wear….

The project of the week was a garage for small cars!  It super simple:
Collect and glue toilet paper rolls! As much you need or as much you do have cars 😉 and create your own garage shape and form! Markus spend at least 25min in silence playing with it: taking out and putting back in his cars.

cars have a place now!

And what is yours project of the week??

 

I WILL GET THERE OR gardening basics

One day I will find the place where I will want to have my own home (including R+M) and I will have garden full of vegetables and herbs.

So I need to practice for that ;)…

I learned some tricks from my father because he loves flowers and everything else that has leaves. But my skills in gardening are totally low!

Last summer I tried to grow some strawberries… you know those pots “easy to plant” and etc. That you just need to add water and wait because rest it s already done…but not for me. I was waiting and waiting… calling to my father for consultation but no success!

Ok. After some months I got one or two poor blossoms… but no strawberries. Maybe they was missing bees to pollinate and fertilize them?? 😉

But this year I was ready to try again! Specially because I wanted Markus to learn how to behave in front of a fragile plant (on those days he basically was just stepping all blossoms that he could find and I wanted to show him that he needs to take care of smaller beings than him and not hurt them).

So… I planted some herbs like basil, rucola and rosemary.

I was super happy when I saw them growing and growing super fast and it looked that I was going to have my success!

2 weeks after, my beautiful garden turned into a dry desert… too much water? To hot?… I have no idea.

Anyway we learned two things:

1. Markus learned to plant and take care of plants.

2. I had more experience with gardening and now I am ready for third round! !! I will get there!
