Back to England – last part!

We had a day with the cousins and saw my sister’s teeny premature twin boys which was cool.  Ella loved holding them – they’re so tiny!

We went swimming (again) and Henry managed to swim unaided for 3 or 4 meters, which for a skinny 5 year old boy who last year, was afraid of the water, was really cool.  I even had him jumping in off the side and helping him duck down and touch the bottom.  Lesson there, parents, is to get a good pair of well fitting goggles.  It transforms how much fun they have in the water.

But then it was time to go, which is always the worst part – knowing we have a few more hours, a little more fun and then I have to leave them and fly home again.

After turning Henry into Harry Potter, We got the bikes out and had a little cycle about in the gorgeous sunshine.  Ella is very accomplished these days, as you’d expect, and loved her new bike

Henry is still learning, but, with a little help and a lot of running up and down, we had him riding on his own – he thought I was still holding on to the back of the saddle, but I was really just covering it to make sure he didn’t crash!! Nice one, boy!

And that was it – I had an amazing time, but I had to head off.  It’s so sad – lots of tears and don’t go’s later, I headed off, ready to pack up and catch the flight back the next morning.

See you again soon, little monsters.
