The Sunflower nursery arranged a trip to a local butterfly park, so Gesa joined in with the kids for a day out. A rather twisty-turny coach ride through the Bedforshire countryside left Gesa feeling about the same as a couple of hours on the boat in rough weather , but the kids enjoyed every minute. Apart from the minutes they didn't of course, but being kids such moments come and go with amazing regularity, and the troubles and traumas of five minutes ago are long forgotten in the new joy of the moment. Ah to be young...
As to be expected, the butterfly farm had quite a selection of ... butterflies. It was also a small animal farm, so there were goats, pigs, ducks, geese, rabbits to pet and lots of other wee beasties to see and be amazed or scared by.
Somehow, the girls at the nursery manage to organize and marshall about 30 kids through a whole day with the minimum or fuss, and they even go on a meadow walk down to a little hide where they can watch the birds on the river.
Max pauses for effect and stares into the middle distance like a true performer.
