Where Squirrels…

…throw conkers at you like weapons!

We went conker hunting yesterday, turns out we didn’t have much hunting to do.  There were squirrels in the tree who were opening up the shells, throwing them down, taking a couple of bites from the conker and then throwing them down too.  They were coming down with a lot of force too, felt a bit under siege under there.

Seriously never seen anything like it!

When the squirrels got bored (or full) we retired to the playground. We’d been joined by 3 other home ed families, it is lovely to see how children who have never met each other before and who are very different ages can play so happily.
Sam is starting to pick up a fan club from among the younger children, he is generally very good with them too.
