On Tuesday we threw a last minute 'Autumn Day' at Playcentre, before we ran completely out of Autumn days... It was fun and easy, and time absolutely flew. We didn't even manage all the things I thought we might get done.
There was lots of Autumnal painting going on, and leaves floating around everywhere. Zan made pumpkin soup for our shared lunch, and even came to Playcentre for the day which was a total novelty (I didn't know what to do with myself). It was crazy stormy outside, but cosy (and still quite crazy) inside. Every now and then the storm would just stop, and all of the kids would pile outside for a play.
For someone who sometimes struggles with the craziness of Playcentre, it was really nice to have a focus. It was still crazy, but it was fun crazy. Next week we're going to have Stripes Day. Fun! Any ideas for stripey food? Oh, and thank you to Rhiannon of Toast & Life, whose Weekly Theme Dinners totally inspired this!
