Splash.

In which water is wet and children are too.

It’s summer in the UK, and rather unusually we seem to be having one. The weather is consistently hot,  but more extraordinarily, consistent.

I love this. Love the heat, love not having to leave the house for a day out with four seasons worth of clothing . Pearl  loves being outside, but actually the heat is more of a trial to her. The extreme temperatures (and apologies to any readers in Australia, to us 28 degrees C is extreme) makes her unpredictable muscles floppy, weak, and well, more unpredictable

Times this by 50 and you have a school full of hot, floppy, grumpy, children.

The Horton Lodge solution?

“Please bring in a change of clothes and a water pistol tomorrow we will be having a water fun day”

Leading to another favourite home-school diary entry.

“We have had a great morning outside in the sun for our school waterfight”

This dear reader is another reason I love Horton.

 

This is part of a blog a day for Horton, which, thanks to reader generosity, has already raised £360 pounds for the Parent Friends and Staff Association.To add to the pot, help keep the school minibuses in good shape, and put money towards future Bendrigg trips you can donate here (don’t be put of by the £10 suggested minimum on the page, give as little or as much as you like!)
