Tractor Run and Fun Day

Today we went to a local tractor run and fun day in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance we couldn't stay all day as it was far too hot, but we had fun and donated what we could. There was stalls, a small fun fair, bouncy castles, circus workshops, a tractor bus ride, a miniature train ride, pony rides, a Punch and Judy show and lots more! Harvey even made his own beeswax candle!

Goodbye YR, Hello Class1

We are now in our second day of the summer holidays and i have been going through your work from the past year. You have done some fantastic painting and made some lovely junk models. Your lovely teachers have done 2 fantastic learning journey books following your progress through the year which i am going to add and finish over the holidays. 

Your school report was as i had expected with your struggles to socially fit in with children your age and control your emotional behavior showing below the average and your social, language skills and listening skills above the average :) Everything else is well on target and hopefully you will keep up your improved behavior when you return as a year1.

You have learnt so much this year, you can read really well now and know all your letters and how to write them, you can recognise all the phonics sounds and count a long way. you have told me all about the natural world, different cultures and their foods, how to make this, that and beyond!

You even managed to keep any holes out of your trousers until the end of the very last day!?!


Harvey's First Ever Sports Day

Well done my beauty, you tried your best and done something new! 
You thoroughly enjoyed yourself and i loved watching you and your team compete in the clockwork sports! You was so speedy in some of the 12 games that i couldn't even grab a photo!
With your 'magic' running socks

beanbag balancing
You were great at this!

space hopper laps
You had one of the biggest bounces!

hockey ball control
You tried well with this but just couldn't get the hand of turning!

Sack race
You did really well in this!

You were fantastic at skipping! You take after your uncle!

foamy ball and ladle race
The silly ball kept blowing away in the breeze so you found a great way of keeping the ball on!

You made me proud on this day by doing your best and coming in 11th place :)

Happy Birthday Harvey

5 Today!

Happy birthday to my wonderful, beautiful, boisterous, crazy (not so) little monster!

I cannot believe that it has been 5 whole years already since the day i first held you in my arms, we have had so much fun and learnt so many new along the way :)

Today you have opened your presents at home and your favourite was the Hot-wheels loop track!
We then went to the cinema to watch The Lego Movie, you enjoyed your popcorn and the movie loads and even had a dance in front of the screen to the music at the end credits :) **Everything Is Awesome**
On the way to nanny's house we did some Geocaching and we found 'the jar of hearts' and inside there was a trackable smurf travel bug.
At nanny's house you opened more presents and you got the biggest box of k'nex you can imagine and some lovely treats off nanny's neighbour Mary, including a chocolate mustache that you pretended to be granddad with!
We have had lots of fun and games and finished the day off with a lovely chocolate cake!

Happy Birthday Harvey! I hope you had a lovely day :)

A Week of Carnival Fun

Sheringham Beach

Last week Harvey had his friend Lee over to stay for the week, lee is a couple of days older than Harvey and i was worried how i was going to deal with 2 boisterous four year olds for a week, i had planned lots of activities to do and with Cromer carnival week the same time, it gave me another 2 days of fun things to do!
We have spent the week wondering through the woods, swimming in the sea and building sandcastles on the beach, playing down the park in the evenings, we went swimming at the local pool, we have watched the carnival parade, aerobatic displays from Wildcat Aerobatics, been on the funfair and watched a spectacular fireworks display (which my camera had died so i couldn't get any photos!) we have all had a lovely week of fun together and lots of lovely memories made :)

Pettitts Animal Adventure Park - A Day Out With Nanny And Grandad

Last Monday me and Harvey were taken out by my mum and dad to Pettitts Animal Adventure Park, The last time i went there was when i was a child, probably only a little bit older than what Harvey is now, and the only thing i can remember is being bounced by a goat! 
We had a fantastic day and Harvey even plucked up the courage to pet and feed the goats, i got eaten by an over friendly little goat and we had endless rides on the trains, and Harvey really enjoyed looking at all the different animals.
