We spent Monday up at the allotment as we often do, making the most of the sunshine before the rain set in.
It was rather nice to spend a couple of quiet days at home this week. I set up some kitchen science trays for the children to experiment with.
It was Grandad’s birthday on Wednseday and Tabitha drew a picture of a cat for him. I think this is probably her first recognisable non-person drawing. Then on Thursday we spent a lovely afternoon and evening at a friend’s birthday party.
My mum organised a concert for her music pupils on Friday evening. Aaron opened the first half by playing two short piano pieces. I was really proud of him, he played brilliantly and didn’t seem at all nervous about performing in front of so many people.
It was also a lovely opportunity for him and Tabitha to listen to some of the older children playing various instruments.
Today was Bideford Heritage Day, which we’ve been looking forward to for weeks. When we arrived there was a pirate comedy show going on.
Aaron particularly enjoyed watching the melee combat. He still wants to be a knight when he grows up (as well as an entrepreneur, a fireman and an inventor).
Tabitha’s favourite event was of course the jousting, because it involved horses!
I’ve been doing lots of thinking about our plans for the next academic year, which I will hopefully share soon.
