I wanted to write a whole post about our day in the seaside resort village, but I am knackered and off to bed. Here’s a quick picture of Blake and his best girl Wrenzi on the roller coaster.

I plugged my iPhone into the computer and whole load of photos popped up to be downloaded. So here they are with a few captions. When we were at EARCOS over spring break there was a booth selling these bee robots as a learning tool among other things. Blake really enjoyed playing with the robot … Continue reading
Blake likes to make potions. A lot! When I’m making dinner he throws a bit of this and a little bit of that in a bowl, stir in some water, whisk it all together and we have one happy boy.

Santa the man terrified him and any thoughts of him coming into our home were met with horror, so we down played the whole thing. He did love the Christmas tree lights though! It took … Continue reading
