Reasons to be Cheerful: Bonfire, Birthday and Mud! #R2BC

R2BC at Mummy from the Heart 

I seem to be moving the linky to Saturday evening and not Saturday mornings! I'm all rushed out during the day with sporting activities... Here is what made me smile this week:

1) Bonfire Fun

My daughter and I enjoyed a Jacob's Join and bonfire party with friends out at Selside. Nice to be sociable and have a few fireworks at a low key event:

2) Forest School

I got to spend Thursday out at Footprints which is a forest school on a National Trust property in Windermere. We enjoyed communing with nature, lighting fires and learning how to whittle.

3) Birthday Boy

My son turned 13 this week! A very low key celebration but with the most important people to us:

4) Cross Country Cup

My son was representing his school at the NW finals of the cross country cup. He was 2nd in his team, 14th overall but the school were once place away from qualifying for the finals!

Now it is over to you...

  1. I can't complain about Saturday evening instead of the morning as it's Tuesday eveningandmines'just up now.
    I recently did a whole project about forest schools with my students.It's fascinating that in Norway and Germany there are forest schools that children attend full time. Their whole primary school outside - even in the snow.
    Well done to your son on his cross country and happy becoming a teenager.

  2. some schools in England do that too!


I love it when people leave a message
