Fred would have started at senior school last week. It was just another day, but it does feel like a milestone. It's interesting for me to read the beginning of this journey, how different I sound.
It was good to have our normal, if loose, termtime routine back. On Tuesday I intended to make the most of the schools starting back, and visit Chessington World of Adventures. Unfortunately London schools were still off, and the place was rammed!
It was the final day of the Bubble Works ride, so the queues were epic. I bought fast track tickets (a one off!), and we said our goodbyes.
We'll visit again soon, so we can enjoy the vampire without an hour's wait.
Wednesday was diving and swimming in the morning. Meg has moved up a group, and they're all doing so well. They had parkour in the afternoon, a most welcome return. We had time for the playground afterwards too.
On Thursday mum came over. She broke her wrist the week before, and is in need of cheering up.
Friday was Camp Mohawk. Swimming, playing, craft, science, happy.
