Today our baby turned one. Where has this year gone?

The older children opening Elisabeth's presents, while she enjoys playing with a balloon!
To celebrate her birthday, and Abigail's upcoming 4th birthday, we had a very special breakfast at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

Can you spot who's got glasses?

 Then we went onto the Sea Life Centre in Manchester, a birthday present from Granny. We managed to book in advance and get a big reduction in ticket prices as we are home educators. 

We all thoroughly enjoyed  our time there and it linked in very well with our current science unit on water.

The children were especially fascinated with the jellyfish, after the project they had worked on earlier this year.

We then had a quick trip into the neighbouring Trafford Centre to enjoy the mock Ancient Egyptian architecture, to tie in with our current history topic.

And here is a short clip of the birthday girl walking.

Happy Birthday Bis, we are very blessed. 

"Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord:
 and the fruit of the womb is his reward." Psalm 127:3


  1. Lovely update. Happy holidays.

  2. Happy birthday to your little girl! I loved the walking video-it brings back some happy memories.

    By the way, I pinned your lollipop sticks and robin craft both of which seem to have been very popular!
