On Tuesdays and Thursdays Sophia attends an Halte Garderie at St Honore d'Eylau. Each afternoon she runs down the driveway and out into the courtyard in front of the church where she is fascinated by the metal (removable) blocks the church locks into place when they do not want people to park in that area. To be honest the only time I've ever seen them down is during weddings and funerals. But everyday Sophia has to test it out.
When they are down, the world as she knows it just doesn't make sense. She talks about it all day long, all night long, until we return to school, and the barricades are back up, and the world is right again.
I don't know if she likes the noise that they make, or the fact that she can shake & rock them, and they won't fall down, but it's the same - everyday.
