Last day at nursery. Master R leaves his nursery today to go to pre-school 3 days a week. He’s had the best time starting in early 2017 when we had just moved to the area and he was just a baby. He’s moved up through the 4 rooms, from Caterpillar, to Butterfly, to Ladybird, and most recently he’s been a Busy Bee. I love a good themed present so the kids got busy at the weekend making potato print bee wrapping paper and tissue paper bee cards. There’s metal decorations for the lovely garden space the nursery have along with a ‘Bee’ themed book. And of course Caterpillar chocolate cake for the children!
Sometimes, just sometimes, I manage to get a decent pic of the kids together! And I couldn’t resist the 3rd photo which just makes me smile! Had such a lovely time with these two today at @ntdunhammassey whilst Mr MoaB is away. @nationaltrust #nationaltrust #dunhammassey #ntdunhammassey
The Lost Words. We explored the park a bit more today at @ntdunhammassey by going on a word hunt inspired by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris' spellbook, The Lost Words. Miss A was much better at spotting the more hidden ones than me! It was good letter and word practise for her too! #nationaltrust #dunhammassey #ntdunhammassey #thelostwords
Dunham Massey. We certainly had lovely weather for our visit to @ntdunhammassey today. The kids did so well because we did both the Percy The Park Keeper Trail around the gardens (see @moabbookclub for more pics) and then The Lost Words Trail around the grounds (see next post) so they walked a lot! It would be so easy to avoid taking both of them on my own but we had such a lovely time with minimal whinging! We haven’t really explored much of the park before. I’ve promised we’ll take their scooters next time. #nationaltrust #dunhammassey #ntdunhammassey
Amazing evening at @magicalwoodland. We all loved it and are grateful we got to experience it. Highly recommend. Lots more photos to follow but couldn’t resist popping up this one with the kids! Also it was so lovely to meet @frugal_family_adventures and her family. Great to put a face to the account and the kids were so sweet together. #magicalwoodland #blakemerevillage @visitblakemere #gifted
All things Acorns. At Nature Nippers today we met Sammy the Squirrel puppet and collected acorns. We then made mud/acorn soup & coffee, did an experiment to see if the acorns would sink or float and also rolled them down the tubes. Lots of different ways to play! @nature_nippers #naturenippers @backfordbelles #backfordbelles #outdoorfun #natureplay #playingwithnature
Headteacher’s Award! So proud that Miss A got special recognition today for “totally amazing maths work”. So a special after school treat as she was awesome yesterday in the Harvest Festival assembly and then has made us even prouder today! Well done Miss A!
Harvest Festival Day! Each year at school were given a colour and they could wear that colour plus take food of that colour for the ‘Rainbow‘ hampers. Now Master R is in ore-school, he gets to join in with some of these school events so this is the first one for him. Miss A wanted to draw a special picture for her teacher too! Off to see the special assembly later. #harvestfestival #harvestfestival2019
Cheesy couple pics as we were celebrating our Anniversary after all! #weddinganniversary #happyanniversary
