Some of you may have seen the National Trust have launched a new campaign called ‘50 things to do before you’re 11 3/4‘ which as it sounds is a list of things that children should try before they reach the age of 11 3/4. We've been a little bit quite on this but here is an update on what we have managed to do
Plant it, Grow it, Eat it!
Every year me and Aly enjoy planting our potatoes. This year was no different, and the other day we emptied our first potato sack and this was the resulting crop which has since been eaten.
Fly a kite
Unfortunately there is no photo to go with this but for Christmas Aly got a kite which she'd been after for ages. When the weather was ok but with a little bit of wind she went off with her Pop Pop and spend ages flying it around our local field.
Play in the Snow
Granted this wasn't in the last few months but I thought I'd include it as I hadn't actually checked it off.
Visit a farm
Visit a farm? Ha did you not see the amazing time we had a Coombe Mill? Over our little lives we've visited many a farm and there will be many more I'm sure.
That's our little update for now and with the school holidays now here I'm sure there will be more over the coming weeks.
