“Come on Dr.Inglis! Why don’t you try the trapeze?” shouted Mrs.Ringrose and Mrs.Dance.
If it’s possible, the second day has been even better than the first. The children have been generally great in meeting our expectations.
Our first breakfast was sumptuous with baked beans, hash browns, scrambled eggs, sausages, everything you could wish for! Our first full day of activities has included quad biking, open canoeing, archery & aeroball. It has been a delight to see the children overcoming their fears, facing new challenges, rising to the occasion. Arguably, the highlight of the day was open canoeing. This involved children pairing up to paddle a boat around a man-made lake. They learnt how to manoeuvre deftly, maintain balance and return safely to harbour. Some children took the opportunity to play a game ending in man overboard. You can imagine the good-humoured drenching that took place. 😀
Mrs.Dance and Mrs.Ringrose bravely completed the trapeze and although Dr.Inglis shied away from exposing himself to ridicule, he did hit a bullseye in archery.
We’re all now preparing for bed. Roll on day number three!
Parents – please keep your comments coming in, they will be passed on to the children.
