Happy New Year and a look back at 2016

Happy New Year Looking Back

A Look Back

At this time of year, I like to have a look back over the previous year on my blog and pick a favourite post from each month.

 

January

The girls loved making home-made butter. It tasted delicious but it was hard work!

February

Ella made an ‘Ella-henge‘ which was a model of her version of Stonehenge for a school project. We were very proud of the effort she put into it.

Frogspawn first appeared in the pond Ant had made the spring before. I was so excited!
