Visiting Friends

We have had two really good days visiting friends this week. We have been on the train to Pulborough where Hannah had a lovely day playing with her friend - the girls did lots of pony related play and then rode Hannah's friends ponies and played with her other pets. Such a relaxed day, Hannah came home very reluctantly at the end of the day, so we have arranged to camp with them next week so that the girls can spend some more time together.

Yesterday we caught another train to Southampton to visit different friends. Such a nice day! Hannah and her friends played ponies and minecraft, went to the paddling pool and playground and had hot chocolate and ice cream in the cafe. Even more importantly I had a chance to catch up with their mum, who is possibly my longest standing 'mum friend' (we met at La Leche when our children were really small and hit it off straight away). Sometimes as home educating parents it seems that we are so busy providing opportunities for our children that we forget to take care of ourselves and our own friendships - so yesterday was especially nice for me!

Oh, and in between visiting friends Hannah has also had her friend Sapphire over for the day. The girls were busy all day swimming, skating, biking and playing nerf gun combat! It's been a busy fun filled week!
