Bonus Podling time

Blue skies and open fields beat the classroom hands down! 

Tom's teacher was on strike today and for reasons that would take too long to go into I opted to keep Lily home from school as well. Since I found myself with a whole day of bonus Podling time and the weather was dry, I decided it would be nice to spend lots of it outdoors. We went to the park near the house in the morning, but had to head home as I had some shopping coming at lunchtime. As a hat tip to the fact that it was supposed to be a schoolday, I did some school work with the Podlings during Emma's naptime. With that under our belts, I felt we could go out and enjoy the blue skies with a clear conscience.

We packed a basket of goodies, put Emma in the pram and took the 15 minute walk to a local country park. The Podlings had a great time in the play park and running on the grass before we laid out our blanket and sat down for our little picnic.

We had a lovely day and I really enjoyed my bonus time with the Podlings. Roll on the summer holidays!
