This week we have been very busy, we celebrated the Autumn Equinox. 🍁

We found that last weeks autumn rain had brought a snail into our garden. 🐌

We focused on the habits and the life of snails, we found that snails do not live in family groups but clusters. 👴👵

This sparked our conversation around extended family such as grandparents.

We found that we all call our grandparents different names including:

👵 Granny
👵 Nanny
👵 Nene
👵 Niania
👵Bambinaia

…..different names but love then very much.
