18th – Laura’s turn for a run today. She met us afterwards at the nearby field looking slightly red after she pushed herself to complete 7k but still had enough energy left to relive her youth showing Noah how to climb trees. Later on she baked biscuits with the boys, refuelling on calories!
19th – Another walk to another local field for football and exercising Quorra. Later on I ventured to the garden centre to find some plants for the homemade planter I made out of left over fence panels.
20th – The nice weather is back so the paddling pool is out, complete with holes. I managed to find 4 and slow the deflation with bike puncture repair kit but it looked a sorry sight. Looked online and no surprises that most are now sold out! Making good use of the new decking though 😁
21st – We ventured out to Poynton again today for a family walk and picnic. Noah was not in the mood for walking, which he informed us of constantly! We’ve been doing a lot of the Rob Biddulph drawing lessons online (Check them out! We’ve all had great fun) and today we joined the world record attempt for the largest drawing lesson, along with many of Noah’s school friends. Looks like he smashed it! Laura and Noah filled the planter I built with the new plants (lets see if they last)…back in the paddling pool.
22nd – Laura and Noah did some schoolwork this morning whilst Lev and I went to play at the park. Back home, Laura had some work to review ahead of tomorrow. Lev decided it would be helpful to flick her in the face with a plastic spring…he kept this up for about 5 minutes.
23rd – Policeman Noah, along with his police dog Quorra, + Spiderman came on an adventure with us this morning. PC Noah arrested Spiderman a fair few times. In the afternoon we had a kid friendly family quiz over Zoom, Noah dressed up for the occasion in his favourite shirt.
24th – Noah and I did 4 doorstep portraits. Including a few surprises for him as 3 were for people we knew. He loved seeing everyone (and taking their photos) and the last doorstep portrait was Nanny and Grandad!
