There are many stories left untold in this blog this year. So, to keep you up to date, I have chosen a few photos to share with you over the next few blogs.
One cold evening in October, we completely rejected to notion of a healthy desert after dinner, and cooked marshmallows over the barbeque instead. Far more fun, if a little chilly!
Late in October we all went on Scout camp. Angus remembered what to expect from previous camps, Isla had not attended one before. Mind you, from her confidence and ability to work out what was going on and join in, you would never have guessed. I can only assume Scout camps are in her genes! I don't think it is difficult to tell where those genes came from...
Muddy, happy, smokey, sitting next to a fire, in the sun, freezing cold (literally - there was ice inside the tent in the morning!), out in the open air. What more could a child need? Oh yes, food and a lot of love. No problems there then.
Then add fun, big brothers and climbing into the mix and you have two tired but very happy children.
There, part 1.
