The photo was taken at the end of a two hour lesson with Aliki, my older granddaughter who is seven. Her younger sister, Anna, had just come to join her at the end of our session and they were listening to me when their mother took this photo. I think we were planning to meet up. We have all met up twice in ‘distanced’ picnics since it was permitted to do so.
I have ‘taught’ Aliki five mornings a week for about ten weeks. As you can imagine we are the firmest of friends! By engaging Aliki in this way, not only does she cover her school topics and more but it also allows her father to work and her mother and baby brother to have a quick nap while Anna is out at nursery school. It gives a rhythm to our day for all of us.
