It’s been a busy week this week, what with all the sessions and classes the children have been attending this week and the trips we’ve made.
Earlier this week, Bean attended a two hour football skills session provided by Tesco and the FA. He never really got the chance to do football at school – it wasn’t covered in his PE lessons. He now wants to learn to play so this was a great way to kick off. It was a baking hot day and I wondered how he and the other kids would manage in the heat.
We left him to it and I took Plum and PK to a park a couple of minutes away, since there was no way they would manage to hang around for two hours whilst I watched Bean. PK wants to be on the move all the time and cares nothing for staying within reach, so the park, with its fenced in toddler area was the perfect place for them both to let off steam.
There was no-one else there and they enjoyed having the run of the swings and the slide, having a picnic, chasing each other and generally having fun. Bean thoroughly enjoyed his football session and is keen to try and fit another one into his busy schedule before the end of August.
The following day, we all travelled to Coventry to meet a friend of Stonelaughter’s, along with his family. Bean and their daughter immediately hit it off and were off playing on the climbing frame, the fountains and generally having a great time. It didn’t take long before Plum was stripping off to her underwear to play in the fountains, closely followed by “swimming” in the sand. Great combination! It was a lovely few hours.
