Last Saturday I attended a training event for Sunday School teachers. I wanted to go, but didn't want to go, as is so often the case when I have so much on. However, it was a very helpful day, where we spent a lot of time in the Bible and thinking about how to faithfully teach the Bible to children. I came away with fresh ideas and enthusiasm for my Young Church responsibilities.
In addition to our usual work pattern this week, Michael and I took the children on a late afternoon walk along the Thames. It was well worth taking the time out of a busy week to spend some time together, and to get outside. We discovered some great playgrounds along our walk, so I plan to take the children back along the same walk again soon, but with more time to stop and play along the way.

The children had fun making sand pictures for our history activity this week.
We also went for a nature walk by a pond for our studies this week. We have a jar of pond water waiting for us to get round to looking at samples of under our microscope.

We've ended the week with my eldest going off to spend a couple of days with his grandparents, which he has been really looking forward to. I took the rest of the children for an afternoon in the park with their friends, which was a happy end to the week.
