Y3 - 240/365: One Little Duck Went Swimming One Day...
We finally got the parcel my Nan sent over a month ago for Ryan. Apparently it has been sitting in customs and we had no idea until we received a letter in the post that we had to pay nearly £33 to pick it up. So, this morning Matt took Ryan and me (both bunged up, Ryan with snot and me, a sore throat) to the Parcel Force depot in Birmingham to get the box.
Ryan helped Daddy open it when we got home and the first thing Ryan did when he saw inside the box was grab the yellow duck! But he did agree to a couple of kisses first, to be fair.
I think the thing he liked the most of all was the blanket that Nanny made for him. He kept laying it on the carpet and lying down saying, "Ahhhhhhhh!"
Of the items that she sent, these were the ones I could see Ryan getting the most use of. She sent quite a few outfits and PJ sets, but unfortunately they were too small, and the rest will most definitely shrink the first time they are washed.
Here's what he thought of his Thomas the Tank Engine book...
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
