The End of Summer

My boys don’t go back to school until tomorrow but this weekend saw the official end to summer in our house.

I asked the boys if they enjoyed their six-week break and what the highlights were. Here are their replies:

Jasper, aged 7:

“I wish we’d had more sunshine and been able to swim. I liked going to Norfolk and camping with my friends; it rained loads and Daddy got really wet, right down to his pants. I liked visiting Nana and Granddad and playing in the park opposite their house every night after tea. I liked that Mummy kept forgetting the time and so we had dinner late and sometimes I went to bed really, really late. I liked playing on the beach at Nana's. I liked riding my bike. I liked not going to school and being able to play on my DS lots. “

Harvey, aged 5:

“I liked playing at home and watching TV with Daddy. I liked living in a tent and not having baths; we got really stinky.”

So, there you have it folks. Summer was all about Daddy's wet pants and all of us getting really stinky - what more can i say!?
