Matthew proudly came out of school on Friday with the class bear. I was less thrilled. we always seem to get it when we have NOTHING planned…
Phew! Monday night is Beavers night and luckily they were completing their cycling badges: something to write about!
We panicked a few weeks ago when the schedule was announced as Matthew was unable to ride a bike. He had outgrown his bike so there was a panic buy of a new one amidst much glee from Anya that she now could have Matthew’s old one.
We practiced in the garden, on the patio, at the park, in the street, in the alley.
Success: he could ride!
I proudly told the Beavers leader and she mentioned that the cycling badge focused on other skills such as safety and pumping up tyres. Panic again! But actually it was fine 🙂
