Elf and Emperor are learning to play Senet, an ancient Egyptian game, while Woodjie is away at preschool. That's also when I have time to do strange things like eat lunch, organize my materials for the next day, and play with a strange little creature in my living room. Isn't she cute? She gets into some things and needs some reminders, but isn't constantly pinball-running, climbing, screeching and throwing stuff. Yes... when Woodjie is out at preschool, the house is (relatively) quiet. He goes for a few hours four times a week. He comes home smelling sweaty and his shoes are full of playground sand, but he does look forward to seeing the "zus."
