Through the coarse of my time at SCC, I watched so many walls & towers being built by little engineers only to be knocked down again, I ate platters full of playdough pizza & pancakes.
I played patient whilst my many ‘mini doctors’ listened to my heart beat, looked into my ears and made me say Aaggghh.
Elfie, Selene & Florence became my 'assistants' and it became rare to not have at least one of them with me, either photo bombing, or slipping in for a sly cuddle, or trying to slide onto my lap every time I sat down!
The Kinder's kept me nicely puffed out which was fabulous for some action shots of jumping, running & skipping, some of the little monsters were true 'lens avoiders' which made it particularly challenging to get any shots of them in a stationary position!
With the Kinder girls, I went on an expedition with Annalies, Elle & Selene to find bugs, Ava O spotted a bee which appeared to be injured or 'tired', so we all sat for sometime and watched as it crawled around the flowers in the morning sunshine, it was lovely to get close to the bee without it buzzing around, Elle was very concerned for the Bee's well being and so Myra made the decision that we should leave the bee to have some quiet time.
The bug expedition ramped up when the magnifying glasses came out, I showed Spencer, Florence & Rachael how to use the magnifier properly to look at the pollen on flowers, Spencer found a baby spider with his.
There are definitely some smartypants in this centre, I was blown away by Ellie's vocabulary and pronunciation putting my 18 month old to shame, James impressed me with his math skills, he agreed with me that he is 100% ready for school!
I captured as many 'Concentration tongues' as I could, these are my favourite things to photograph, those young brains problem solving and the facial expressions they pull, that and eyes and eye lashes, the purity in a child's eye and the vibrance in the colour of the iris, I don't think I will ever tire of capturing the beauty of a child's eye.
My last mention goes to Sidney, geez that lad is committed, I watched him for what must have been over 5 minutes trying to find the end of the sticky tape (we've all been there right!!?) This boy did not give up, did not break under the pressure, he didn't even crack a sweat, he simply studied, tried and tried again, refused help, his dedication is commendable. And he found it in the end!
