Friday Reflections - 29

We returned from our trip to Center Parcs a few hours ago, and are all feeling genuinely refreshed after a few days away together. We've had time to read, to use the swimming pool a lot, to cycle around or go for walks, and to have some extra naps. Perhaps because of all the swimming, most of us have slept better than average, which has been much needed. 

We've also fitted in a bit of bonus maths (Michael's suggestion, which was actually quite well received...).

Holiday Maths

We also went to see the fireworks one evening, which everyone enjoyed.

One lunchtime, we went out for a meal, and my eldest was particularly delighted to be able to eat from the adult menu. He has never been greedy, but his appetite is now bigger than mine by some way...



While we were away, we found out that two of our children, our 9 year old and our 7 year old, have been shortlisted in the Young Games Inventor Competition that they entered, which I wrote about here. They are very pleased with themselves! 

The children all fell asleep in the car on the way home, which is very unusual. I think this is a sign of a good holiday.
