Wow, I haven’t updated for a while. Things just seem to have been so busy in so many ways!
After Alfie’s birthday, it was straight back into our normal busy lives. We went for a lovely lunch at Pickle Jack’s with Nanny, Grandad and Uncle John, to say thank you for building our fence. We had a fun day at Fourways Play Centre with Elaine, Jacob and Jess. We had lots of fun at Friday Club.
And made cakes when we got home
We met Uncle Steve, Aunty Andy and cousin Toby for a fantastic day at Snibston Discovery Centre. It was great to catch up, and the kids all ahd fun palying together.
Alfie, Amber and I had a an amazing day at Dudley Zoo and Castle, with lots and lots of our home ed friends. Holly spent a happy day with Nanny and Grandad as she didn’t feel like coming. The rain soon dried up and we had an amazing day seeing all the animals and playing with friends.
On Tuesday we had a quieter day to regroup for the rest of our busy week. Amber made a bird from the craft drawers. Alfie and Holly spent time playing games and drawing. Amber and I went for a parent and toddler swim at Oak Park pool.
We had a lovely day at Come Into Play with Cian, Cadi, Mael, Iolo, Teifi, Rachel and Rob. Lots of space to run off energy and explore the extension to the play frame.
Alfie and Holly really enjoyed their Lego Control robot workshop and animation workshop at Think Tank science museum. Whilst they were in their sessions, the younger children explored the galleries together. It was a fantastic day, and the kids learnt loads.
We had a lovely time at a very busy Friday Club, followed by play at Sarah’s house.
As well as repotting plants, cleaning out chickens and other chores, today has mainly been a crafty day. Amber and Holly have been doing Bendaroo modelling, Amber has been making moon dough animals, Alfie has been tidying his drawers out to make room for all the Minecraft papercraft models he has made, and Holly finished the sun catcher that she started at Friday Club yesterday. Alfie also made the alien, stomach and brain from his alien operation kit, as well as making some alien goo (non-Newtonian fluid). We also played Pop to the Shops
Amber made a Bendaroo pineapple!
