‘But why?’

The weather this morning looked better than the forecast predicted last night. So after a bit of a slow start, with M still feeling rough with a cold, we quickly packed up a picnic and headed off to the Nene Valley Railway. The Peterborough end of the line is only ten minutes walk from our house, but M pointed out that if we go to Wansford, we would get two extra rides. So we drove twenty minutes to Wansford.

We spent the rest of the day chugging into Peterborough and back three times. Joel slept most of the way and Matt slept for a good part of one of the journeys. The boys were blissfully happy.

The ‘but why?’s hit today. All day B was asking ‘but why?’… ‘but how?’… ‘but when?’… I was again beginning to doubt my commitment to home-education by the end of the day! Came home and put two very tired boys to bed.

Joel is starting to reach out and grab things on his baby-gym now. Still being extremely happy and extremely noisy with it. He loves B and Ise and giggles away at them.
