Last Saturday, my 8 year old ran his 10th parkrun, which he was very pleased to do. It's great to see the younger three really enjoying their running each week.

That afternoon, the more significant family running event occurred when Michael ran his first half marathon.

There were plenty of hills, and he was pretty exhausted when he finished, but he did enjoy it. I'm hoping to run the next one with him!
Our usual work has included some autumn leaf pictures, and also a science lesson about seasonal changes and the rotation of the earth.
As ever, term time is pretty full on, so we appreciate the time for fun stuff as well as work. This week that has included watching Bake Off together as a family, taking the children to visit a farm with our home education group, and heading off for a round of crazy golf with Michael as a slightly belated birthday celebration.
Michael volunteered to make a pudding for this week's Bake Off. He doesn't usually bake at all, but his banoffee pie was delicious.

Our farm trip was very enjoyable. The children learned about different animals, had the opportunity to feed many of them if they wanted to, and finished the trip by taking turns holding quail chicks.

Michael and my trip to crazy golf was great fun - an excellent way to celebrate a 39th birthday. Michael won - so there may have to be a re-match one day.
