The only thing I will be doing is going down the yard to video my horse being backed for the first time. No kids at all am so looking forward to having some time off:)

Father's Day - not sure what yet, I'm looking now. ;)

Time out somewhere each day perhaps picnicing at the country park and day out somewhere that costs eg soft play type place or the farm (weather permitting). My Dad is on about going to the zoo so we might go there with him.

I might do some World Cup flags or something related to that.

26-05-2010, 07:42 PM
We are starting our World Cup topic and going to the Sheffield United Football club for a Ground Tour. We will be doing some Father's Day bits, crafts, cooking and praying that the weather is nice so they can play outside!! :D
