We have had such an amazing summer. Awesome, The Boy says. It's been a long, hot summer and we have packed it with fun and freedom.
We have tried not to think of going back to school. I managed to get most of the things the children needed without having to take them with me or mention school. We sneaked a shoe trip in with buying casual shoes too.
I tried to think of something lovely to do with our Final Day of Freedom. It was a hot day, 29 degrees at 5pm as we drove home. A local nature reserve was the perfect place to enjoy the last day of our summer holidays.
Spotting the first signs of Autumn, tiny acorns on this Oak tree.
The children loved the sculpture trail.
A cocoon in the trees.
Climbing has been number one on our list of 'favourite things to do' this summer.
Determination to complete the rope course.
It really was quite a challenge!
Paddling, who doesn't love paddling!
Little bear paddling!
Beanie played on this for ages!
More zip wire fun!
Balancing on the wobbly bridge.
We're looking forward to an autumnal return visit! It will be wonderful to see such a beautiful place change through the seasons.
