Just a quick post – we had a full on day today. I dropped 10 year old Inky to home ed swim group that takes place every other Monday. One of the home-ed mums stays there as a point of contact and we can stay and chat or go off for a couple of hours. As the weather was nice I took our 21 month old to 2 different playgrounds. Then we collected Inky, went food shopping and had lunch. Bri didnt want his nap for the second day in a row so we finished watching the second part of a documentary we have been watching – India, Natures Wonderland. I would share a link here but both parts are only available on BBC iplayer for a couple more days. But there are plenty of other documentary’s on there. We do little mini projects on the documentaries we watch. Its pretty fun and I like learning new things too 🙂 Then it was time to cook dinner and tidy up followed by bed time…. Anyway, I found this today and thought I’d share it with you.
