A Week In Review

And the school holiday is over once again! I always have this feeling that we didnt do anything with the half term and now looking back at the instagram photos we did a lot! (And yes this post has got lots of photos!!!)

We did start it with a fever and yet with the help of calpol (As Fiona calls it > magic juice hehe) we were able to still go out in the afternoon to enjoy the warm weather!
Not his first in the carousel but his first using his own [pocket] money.

He suddenly got high fever yesterday. But with the help of calpol we still managed to get out and enjoy the sunshine 🌅 #mysundayphoto #carousel #childhood #childhoodunplugged #countrykidsfun #littlefierceones #explorerkids #ukparentbloggers #mbloggers #clickinmoms #ordinarymoments

And because he is still recovering from that fever we spent a lot of hours resting while creating or reading.
And I think it helps that I managed to store extra Lego toys from last Christmas and brought them out to enjoy during the week!
We're reading this morning in our little household. Me reading #thethrophychild by #pauladaly  and him #wonderbook by #rjpalacio 😍 He's got so many questions already while reading the book like what is home room, principal and grade 5? He's learning so much about education system in the US. And hopefully about kindness. #kidsreading #childrensbooks #bookstagram #books #wonder #childhood #childhoodunplugged

What keeping my son busy 😊#Lego #legocity #spacecraft #toy

This kept my son busy! Assembled everything by himself! I helped a bit with the red tree though. #minecraft #minifigures #lego #legominecraft #toy #assembly #blocks #colorful

And because we have Lego bits and bobs he was able to make his own fidget spinner.

And we played in the water, discovered our own island, climbed rocks, rode the donkey and biked.

This is how we spent our early evening. And his silhouette reminded me of Harry Potter 😊#westonsupermare #westonsupermaremarinelake #marinelake #silhouette #littlefierceones #explorerkids #childhood #childhoodunplugged #water #twig #wand #enchantedchildhood

He found a massive rock in the lake and declared it is his island. 😜#childhood #childhoodunplugged #countrykidsfun #outdoors #westonsupermare #marinelake

So yeah we were busy and we had fun! He is going to be 7 in a few weeks
and he is already counting the days till his birthday so I guess its safe to say that we will have more fun in the future days!

Hope you had fun like us too!

Aww! Lovely photos. It looks like you both had a great half term....
I love the one of your boy riding the donkey. I remember a post from you a while back with him and the donkeys x

I can't believe he is going to be 7, where has that time gone? How wonderful that he enjoys reading, only a couple of my boys really did, it will help him so much at school. As for the fun on the beach, that has to be the one of the best things about where you live. I remember when he was just tiny and excited just to see the donkey never mind ride him! Lad the "magic juice" ensured you were able to get out and about and enjoy half term.

Thank you for joining me for #CountryKids

I love how close you live near the beach! We live near one too, but it isn't really walking distance, well it kinda is, but a really far one ;) Sebastian is growing up so fast! #countrykids

It's funny how little ones count down to their birthdays while we older people try to postpone it. (Helena aka The Queen of Collage) #CountryKids

What a great week off. I love the book Wonder - just hope the film isn't a let down. #countrykids

Oh I know what you mean - I often wonder where has the school holiday gone and then do the same. I think its because we spend so much time thinking about what we are going to do and perhaps planning it. That when it goes by so quickly its easy to think we did nothing!! Love all the photos and the fidget spinner. #CountryKids

Fever aside (thank goodness for Calpol!) it sounds like it was a lovely half term. I love the photos of your son having fun on the beach. How lovely to be able to live so close and to be able to enjoy time on the beach regularly :-) #countrykids

I love this post because it really does show how the every day, ordinary moments can be quite special with our little ones. I love that he looks so happy on the carousel having purchased his first ride with his own money. And how happy does he look in the water?!

I do enjoy half term; time to rekindle with our little ones
So glad the fever didn't stop you and you all had fun, Merlinda
