Today was an average kind of 'nothing much going on' day for us - no groups to go to and no play dates planned, so here's what we did:

Hannah did her lessons this morning (English, Math, Handwriting and Geography today), and then i remembered that we needed some big pebbles for our 'hot rock art' session at Adventure group tomorrow. So after lunch Hannah got on her bike and we went down to the beach to collect some.

Hannah seemed to forget all about the pebbles when we got there and collected seaweed instead,

turns out she was making a sand face!!
Then she played 'catch me if you can' with the waves........luckily she was too quick for them and stayed dry!
Once she tired of that she thought it'd be a great idea to push her bike to the top of the pebble bank and free wheel down to the sea as fast as possible

many, many times !!
Great, I thought , she'll be so tired we'll go straight home and have a quiet sit down..........i was wrong!

Instead went to the park!

When we did make it home it was time for dinner, and then Hannah wanted to bake.

She made Whoopie Pies and a chocolate frosted, sugar sparkled butterfly cake.

We even saved a couple for daddy :-)

Those chocolate pies are ENORMOUS!! Where does Hannah get her energy? I think her Pip and very similar, they'd probably get on like a house on fire.

Happy Tuesday to you both

Sounds like a perfect day - we miss the beach.
And it always makes me wonder how kids in full time school cope with the lack of movement. I don't think of my two as anything other than normal, but like Hannah they need to be outside and moving around a LOT. How wonderful to have that chance.
