Flying with children is probably the one part of a holiday that I worry over the most, from ways to keep my children entertained to trying to keep Ozzy's loud i-spy voice down so as not to disturb fellow passengers. A good flight makes not only a big difference to your own family's holiday but the flight experience for others travelling with you.
This week we made this fun Yarn Teepee, or Tipi if you prefer. It's very much still a work in progress with the children and I adding yarn to it when we get a spare half hour. At the moment it resembles a multicoloured spider's web but with more wool it could become more of a serious shade giver. The key componets to making this teepee are the hooks on the bottom, more on that below.
What you will need...
It's been a period where I've realised just how fast they are growing, the days of having to bribe Ozzy on walks with packets of raisins and the promise of a packet of crisps in the car at the end are long gone. He no longer ambles slowly behind us on walks, no more complaints of imaginary 'sore tummies' designed to redirect us back to the car. Now he runs ahead 'leading the way', picking the route, the easiest path cowpats and mud, the hard tufts of grass to stepping stone across boggy New Forest ground.
This week I've gone renegade and I'm looking back on some photos from the past 100 weeks and people and posts that have stuck in my mind. It's totally indulgent I know, but awesome that I've met some lovely folk from this linky, both online and then in real life.

It's always great to hear from people, email or snail mail, your choice.
