  1. Great photos, Kate!
    I think kids should be out riding bikes and not sitting in front of monitors/screens. But, then I’m well-seasoned (not old, just well-seasoned! Ha! πŸ˜€ ).
    When I was a preschooler, I had a little tricycle like that blue one in the first photo! πŸ™‚
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

  2. So interesting, Kate. No, childhood is too short for kids to sit in front of screens! And I’m not surprised at the predominance of First Australian faces. The US still struggles with a justice system that is biased by race. It’s distressing.

    • in those days there was only the British here – don’t ask about the thousands of First Nation people that they slaughtered for no reason – Anna but I think we were still executing until about 40 years ago 😦
