We’re on the home straight to the Easter holidays now, and the boys are definitely ready for a break. Toby at least managed to sleep late this weekend and get a few extra hours in this weekend but I think Gabe needs a rest to get over the cold he’s got at the moment.
We had another quiet week – Toby finally finished his home learning project to build a house from the time of The Great Fire of London. He’d been working on it with his Daddy for the last 3 weeks or so and I think they did a great job!
Despite everyone being tired and a little bit poorly we did manage to go out this weekend – on Saturday we went to Old Rufford Hall. It’s our nearest National Trust property but we’ve never been there before. It’s fairly small but Toby and Gabe enjoyed running around in the grounds and we managed to get our March Me & Mine pictures too.
I’m not going to lie and pretend it was entirely a wonderful day out – there was a lot of squabbling when we first got there, but after we’d had our picnic lunch they both cheered up a bit and I got this cheeky picture of Gabe…
We had a quiet day at home for Mother’s Day – I spent most of the morning in bed while the boys went out and got me some flowers and chocolates to go with the cards they had made at school and nursery. In the afternoon the boys played outside practicing their bike riding for a bit (although Gabe is much more enthusiastic about it than Toby at the moment) before a bit of Playstation time and a roast dinner.
So now we’ve just got the rest of this week to get through (with Barry away for the second half of the week) and then it’s holiday time, and we can’t wait!
