The Wind in the Willows

Received notification that our application to join the Homeschool Postcard Club has been approved. We are looking forward to sending and receiving our first cards. James was keen to visit the library again today to choose a new book - brilliant. Unfortunately the library is only open in the afternoon on Wednesday so we had to postpone it as we were going out.

Went with Nanna to see Illyria's performance of The Wind in the Willows, it was truly excellent. Thanks Nanna for treating us to such a great day out and preparing a lovely picnic. Thea managed to get the entire cast (five in total) to sign our programme giving us a treasured memento of our day out. The Wind in the Willows is one of my all time favourite books and I never tire of reading it. The children have fallen in love with the book too and have been re-enacting the story all evening in the style of Illyria, I can see we will be putting on a performance of our own.
