A very British day .....

It is Sunday today and the day of the boys' school summer fair so we had lots to do beforehand....

There were vegetable monsters to make .....

And seed tray gardens to assemble .......

The weather was lovely - which was a relief as yesterday, saturday, was pants.
There was a ballon race, tug of war, farm animals to pet, cakes to buy, a tombola, May pole dancing and a whole heap more. Half an Acre had a stall as usual and the bunnies were on display too.

I have to confess that the above (and left) seed garden was a stolen idea from Dan Jackson - I hope he doesn't mind. There is an adults display table and, being an irritatingly creative family, we are the ONLY people to put anything on to it and I feel the need to come up with something curious and entertaining each year! So, for once, I was drained of any ideas at all so I stole one! I'm hoping that linking to Dan will make up for it! DAN'S SHOP >>>> CLICK HERE!

I am so pleased that the boys are at such a wonderful school. They are allowed to (seasonally!) play in the dirt, throw snowballs, get wet and play with sticks. I value these things. They have really benefited from the inclusive ethos of the school and my eldest especially has changed from an anxious worrier to a cool, confident, self-assured dude-in-the-making.
So BIG thanks to Mr Potter, head-teacher extraordinaire, for looking after everyone so well and making school a pretty good place to be ....

    Isn't it brilliant to find a school that works for your kids instead of against.

    Please, please, please let Toot's school turn out like that in August:)
