School photos

The kids had their first school photos done last month and here are the results. I cannot believe they have almost completed their first half term. They have a holiday from this coming Friday 24th October and they go back on the 4th of November. Having grown up in Asia with so few holidays it is taking some getting used to the new system :)



Weald and Downland

Last week we went to Weald and Downland museum which is fairly close to home. There was a market on and all kinds of activities associated with steam engines. We got to see some Morris dancing, an old steam operated threshing machine and a falconry exhibit. Loads of fun! It s one of the kids favourite places to go. We also stopped and had a picnic lunch on the top of the trundle overlooking Goodwood racecourse. It was cold and windy up there but we had our flask of tea with us.



















Porchester castle

A couple of weeks ago we went to Porchester Castle outside of Portsmouth. It is a castle with amazing History. I will link to wiki here. The grounds are huge and a great place for a picnic, we may return for one. The kids loved the castle and although the spiral staircase was a bit scary there was an amazing view from the top.

First day of school

Dylan and Maya got accepted to Kingsham primary school. We were all nervous for the first day but it went so well. They both had a good first day and Dylan walked out today saying "I like school"
Maya qualifies for free lunch as she is in the lower grades and is thoroughly enjoying it. 










UK first month

It has been a busy time getting ourselves settled her in the UK. We managed to get all the admin stuff done and also had some fun. My sister Grace and her boyfriend have kayaks. We went with them to West Witterings and Ciro had a go :)









 The Weald and downland museum is a large open air museum about twenty minutes away with old tudor buildings that have been relocated fromm various parts of the country. The kids love it there.






















 Jennifer and her family came down from Stowmarket for the weekend. Was so lovely to see them and the kids got on really well.
