Blogging to the end of July

A brief run down of other things we got up to in July….

Spent a fab day at Papworth Park with the Manor Borns, the Deependers and Gina. We have never been before, driven past many times but never stopped. Arrived at 10.20am – Michelle was already there and found a nice shady spot under the trees. We were joined shortly after by Gina and Katy. Once they had a while to play, Gina gave a quick 10 minute music theory lesson in the paddling pool which seemed like fun šŸ™‚ I took along some sketch books, pencils and watercolour pencils and all the children went off to find something to sketch and colour. More playing and splashing and finally left at 6pm!

They have made some lovely greetings cards, produced lots of great artwork, Skye especially likes using pastels at the moment.

Girls had a camp out in Mum and Dad’s garden – they had a great time, not quite the same feelings from my parents :~

Other things have include Horse riding, bike riding, trampolining, dog walking, geocaching, walking, wii-ing, ds-ing, syvanian-ing, role play games – mainly vets which they have set up in the spare room šŸ™‚ plus daily ‘normals’.

They have also attended a First Aid Course with Daddy – which they thoroughly enjoyed. Squeezed in lunch at Ikea too so they had a great day!

We had a lovely day at the Beans party – the theme was African Savannah and the girls planned their own outfits; Skye was a white lion….

The girls made many new friends and spent the day running around playing and laughing, splashing in the pool, Helen and I face painted. The company, weather and food were great and we stayed well into the night and sat round the fire chatting and toasting marshmallows. Got home very late with two very tired but happy girls šŸ™‚
