This morning we went out for a long walk across muddy fields, along paths and through the woods. It was good fun but started off very very cold on the exposed path. We found some geocaches on the way, mostly large boxes but one was a tiny hiding place in a stick!
Isla has had a brilliant week at school. Everyone was excited on Friday morning as they could bring a toy in to play with and were keen to see what each other had brought. Isla was going to take her superhero cape in but it was a little large to store in her drawer. Instead she took in her Dobble game and had fun teaching her friends how to play. She has been using apparatus in gymnastics this week, and been learning the sounds 'ear' as in 'beard' and 'air' as in 'hair'.
We have been reading 'The BFG' at bedtime. In the story, the BFG tells Sophie about what people from different places taste like to the other giants. Isla found it hilarious that the people from Wellington tasted of boots. Actually she didn't believe me that there is an actual place called Wellington, just like the welly boot.
Evie and I took an exciting trip to Bath this week on the bus. She also played with some star ice cubes and did the hoovering for me too. She likes to play pet shops and vets at home.
