Monday 25th July 2016
We went to a Tudor farm.
It was very fun playing with that little girl. She was Dutch.
In the farmhouse I tried one of the children’s beds. It was comfy at the head and the feet but not so comfortable at the legs and body. There were little doorways that used to be windows.
They had a lot of vegetables that they were going to put into pottage. They had pottage, pottage and pottage. They could not afford the sugar.
We watched them eat a meal. The Master was the first one to sit down at the table and start eating first. They had spoons and not forks.
It was very fun doing the spinning. I did the carding and the rolling and the spinning and it was all very, very, very fun.
We watched an owl fly.
We fed the pigs and we finished up all the food on the goats.
I saw the cow being milked.
I was herding the geese.
I went down a fun willow tunnel.
I saw butterflies and bees, both in the meadow.
We did a Tudor dance.

We went to the MAD museum of kinetic art.
When we were going up the stairs we saw a big marble run thingy.
At the MAD museum we some some trains as well.
We saw a big marble run made out of kitchen stuff. You had to put your foot on the pedal, the black bit of the pedal, to start the kitchen marble run.
There was a magnetic and wooden run that you could make your own marble run out of.
It was wonderful.
We went to Shakespeare’s birthplace.
We got to Anne Hathaway’s cottage by a taxi.
I made a village from big building blocks and then there was a pretend earthquake.
I found some fairies in the garden. Some of them were asleep in the flowers. Some of them were awake. Sometimes some of them landed on my hand.
We played chase through the lavender.
I made a Tudor tile from clay.
We did some brass rubbing of Shakespeare.
I beat Mummy at the Tudor game.
We went for a walk in the woods.
Wednesday 27th July 2016
We played mini-golf. The mini-golf was tricky.
I made a mask at a Tudor house.
I went on a rowing boat and I helped do some of the rowing in both directions.
I went to a butterfly farm and a butterfly landed on Mummy’s head.
We saw some ants and other insects at the butterfly farm.
I really did enjoy my holiday.
