Education City and Exercise!

This morning I signed Hannah up for a 10 day trial of Education City
I thought it might be nice for her to do some computer based learning for a change and also, it seemed to support what we had been covering in her lesson. It was a big success! She did whizz through some of it, but found the spelling and science sections really helpful and she especially liked getting the gold stars and certificates at the end! If she continues to get along well with it then we'll sign her up for a full year in september.

After lunch we went out for some sunshine, and walked through the Rock Gardens and along the beach to the splash pool.

Hannah climbed every rock and tree on the way there!
The splash pool was busy as it was such a lovely day, and Hannah wasn't sure she wanted to play when we got there as she didn't know anyone, but she soon found her confidence.

She did lots of this!! It's actually a seesaw but Hannah rode it like a surf board!
She did masses of this!!
and ran about 12 laps of the pool like this!!

After a little rest and a cool off it was time to go home and get ready for dancing! She danced in her Fusion class for an hour and then joined her daddy in the swimming pool which is also at the sports complex where her dance class is held. She has never been in the pool without floation aids before, but today she left them at home and swam her first ever stokes unaided. Just a few, and with daddy right by her side, but she did it, and was so proud of herself.
Unsurprisingly, she went right to sleep tonight, i think she was exhausted!

Oh.....we went to the splash pool today! We were there until about 1.00. I'll have to put a photo on my blog too!

Looks like wonderful day. I will be interested to see how Hannah gets on with Education City too. I often wonder if this would be something Sofie might like too, but we just never seem to get time to sit at the computer!
