Today was D's first Spanish lesson and he loved it. They have started with greetings and listened to some songs. There are three of them from the home ed group doing this together, so they will be able to practice together.
Afterwards we spent some time in the park. Plenty of evidence of squirrels there. The pine cones have been nibbled down to the core.
Once back in Hillsborough, we went to get some rat food and found a new tank for Nipper. As the pet shop didn't have the peat needed for the base they recommended we went to the Lizard Lounge.
This is a shop we hadn't heard of before, but the boys were keen to go once they knew there were snakes and lizards.
Unfortunately they didn't have any peat in stock, but the boys got to hold a corn snake. She was very friendly, and as I wouldn't let her up my sleeve, she tried to take up residence in my pocket.
The boys are already asking when we are going back.
We finished the day in a relaxing way watching Natural World all about Spectacled Bears. Now they know where the inspiration for Paddington Bear Came from.
Ice Skating; First competition.
