It ended up being a quick week off school with Scott. The weather was great all week, so we only ended up back at the currently beloved “baby softplay” once! I also managed to continue my October run every day challenge. The week seemed to be mainly about rock climbing and castles. On Monday we started at Lunderston Bay:
Scott ended up teaming up with another boy and playing with him on the beach for an hour so that was a win.
Tuesday was Eglinton Park:
On Wednesday we were back at the Vikingar sofplay and I was persuaded to buy Scott a sword. They have been pretty much inseparable since!
Billy was off on Thursday so we took both boys swimming in Greenock. Scott has been desperate to go swimming with Luke for ages so we finally got round to it and we were able to show Scott Luke’s underwater swimming that he has been doing at Turtle Tots. We also replaced Scott’s school shoes. Here’s hoping they last a bit longer this time!
On Friday, we went to Portencross, an old haunt from my childhood. I hadn’t been for years and had forgotten how beautiful it is. Scott loved rampaging about at the rocks and charging up to the castle. We will need to visit again when the castle is open.
His imagination was running riot with boats heading out with men that Scott assumed were pirates!
This wee one fit in well to the activities most of the week and obliged by staying asleep in the car with Billy, then me for a spell at Portencross.
Luke is now 5 months old and I am looking forward to him moving on to the next stage soon of sitting up himself and eating solids. I am also looking forward eagerly to getting more sleep! I am struggling a bit at the moment with the constant night-time disturbances.
I made an apple and cherry crumble on Saturday and Luke observed:
When I was settling Luke later that night I asked Billy to take the crumble out the oven. By the time I came down it was decimated, so no photo!
We rounded off the holiday with a walk at Greenock Cut on Sunday:
Scott’s other passion of the holiday was colouring in:
He has been kind enough to tell me that I can colour in while he is at school by myself if I want!
