Summer holidays are well and truly under way,
This week Jessie is at our Church holiday club,
Its a great event,
children from church,
Un-churched kids from the area,
meeting to learn about God and who he is,
in a fun way!
Each summer, we set to making a
where the girls tell me things that they want to
do over the holidays,
we find pictures and make a list,
so when we start each day,
we have a choice of activities.
Here we are making the
One of the things on their list was to visit the local park
We went with lots of Mums and their children,
had a picnic,
had an ice cream,
cup of tea,
and time in the park too.
Ellie and Jessie are so very excited about
having a baby brother or sister,
Ellie has told me she needs to,
'Practice hard to be a great Big Sister!'

Summer holidays are not always a walk in the park,
I often find that,
having the girls together all day and every day,
tensions can rise and so can their voices!
I found this lovely idea on a creative blog,
We have used it a lot!
relevant to what you are learning at the time.
Don't shout at each other!
A soft answer turns away anger!
Each 'soft' answer is rewarded with a soft
feather in the jar...
when the jar is full,
we all get a nice treat.
Its a work in progress.....
