We live just outside Cambridge in the UK and so when Natalie came to visit on her way back from the Ship we took a little tour of some of it. Cambridge is a beautiful city and Tommy gets to cycle down past these sights on the way to work each day...

lego and other things

I was thinking there must be a million things to blog about the boys - so much has happened since we got back. The boys are settled in school, Tom has started football training and been in a school play. That was quite strange for us - there are 3 classes of 30 children just in his year group! That really made us miss the ship too - the kids mixing with children of different ages, Academy productions, that you knew your kids' teachers...anyway...that wasn't really the point of this. Josh has settled into school too - his a much smaller school and I admit the one I much prefer going to. He has started swimming lessons and I am not sure made much progress yet, but loves his opportunities to be a little fish. Tom has been given a bike so we went for our first family cycle to the park today. There is still a bit of snow on the ground, but much of it has gone now. Josh needs to practice more with his bike as his school are running a session to help them ride without the stabilisers/training wheels soon. We are getting used to him on the tag-along with us though and haven't 'almost fallen off' lately!
