Last week we had so much rain. Typically, the weather improved over the weekend while I was at work. When Monday came around, we made an effort to get outside.
Firstly we went to the station to collect a very special visitor – Grandma – who was visiting us for the day. Her train was late getting in so we had time to bundle out of the car and wait on the platform where we saw this amazingly long goods train going through. By the time we realised it was a long one, it was too late to count the carriages but it must have been pulling around twenty. They went on and on and on… I had a very excited boy when he saw Grandma’s train coming round the bend.
In the afternoon we wrapped up warm and ventured out to the park. Winter is coming. It was a cold and frosty day.
We played hide and seek. Seth is particularly good at hiding don’t you think?!
Seth ran up and down the skate ramp. This is his new favourite thing and has led to him asking Father Christmas to bring him a skateboard. It won’t end well!
We looked at the trees. Seth told me a spider lived in the tree. ‘A spider?’, I asked him intrigued. He pointed out a teeny tiny spiders web in amongst the bark. Can you see it? It’s as hard to see on the photograph as it was n real life.
By mid-afternoon Monday, the rain had returned. But we don’t mind that too much. Seth went off to Forest School on Tuesday, when we picked him up he was lovely and muddy, slightly soggy but absolutely buzzing after the fun he’d had in the woods.
