Week 61 – outdoors

In an effort to keep Reindeer entertained, we headed out to the local nature park this morning.

It’s quite cool here now, especially with the wind, and since Reindeer still hasn’t cleared his cold I was in two minds about going out. In the end I decided that fresh air and a change of scene would do us both some good.

I’m glad we went. He loved the swings and the sand play area. He also spent ages walking along a small part of the path, focussing first on some interesting stones, then some plants, then another park users bicycle, etc.

When he became tired it was up into the sling for a walk around the small lake. We picked some blackberries, as well as other interesting leaves, and will try some autumn art, sticking and colouring, tomorrow.

When we returned home he went straight to bed and slept for four hours. He really needed that and I’m hoping he’ll feel a lot better tomorrow as a result.
