Making memories

Yesterday was a very emotional day for Jacob and I; a significant milestone was reached as we found out which class he would be in when he starts reception in September.

This has finally made it hit home that my little boy isn't so little any more and is growing up.

Sadly he has been placed in the opposite class from all of his pre-school friends, but luckily isn't completely alone as he has a friend called Harry to play with. I am hoping that he and Harry become as good friends as Alfie and Chloe, Harry's older sister, have become.

On a positive note we had Jacob`s last pre-school day out to Farmer Palmer's Farm Park, a lovely play park and working farm that is set in the beautiful countryside on the Dorset coast near Poole and Wareham.

We had a blast and it was lovely to see Jacob playing nicely with all of his friends on the wooden play area, pet the guinea pigs, ride in the tractor trailer around the farm and interact with all the farm animals.

It wasn`t only the kids to have all the fun, myself and Emma AKA theprmummy had a go on the go-cart track and may of had an accident or was I supposed to know that the adults cant sit on the back??!!

Before we headed home after a tiring day we decided to calm the boys down by taking a trip on the woodland walk, the boys loved trekking along the path trying to find the next information point, they cant read it yet but were still wanting the information to be read out to them.

If you are looking for a day out with the kids then Farmer Palmer's is the place for you. 
Don't worry if the weather isn't as nice as it was yesterday, there is a huge indoor soft play centre to keep even the most demanding child happy!


  1. What a fab day out! I wouldn't be too worried about your son's friends being in the other class. I think it will benefit him in the long run. My son's in the same situation and I am glad. But one of the reasons for me is I don't like their parents ha!
