At a playground with . Listening to some music while scrolling through the timelines and researching some ideas for my YouTube captions script, while the kiddo is filling and emptying his bucket with sand and stones.

And while I was at it, I decided to a tree by a lake with some happy clouds. ;)

Been with 's on the paper right in front of him. Hopefully it shows him that drawing can be more than just single strokes, spirals and dots. :)

Used his favourite as an example. :)

Perspective isn't great, but it turned out better than I'd expected to be honest. :D

I was hoping could help me sort , but he prefers shoving them around with his bulldozer, and loading them up in his instead, undoing any sorting I might've done 😅

Not sure what was wrong about that one banana, or the way I opened it, but it was reason for a full on tantrum from .
