Oh I do like to be beside the seaside....

On Sunday we spent a lovely day with Picklesgrandma and Picklesgrandad at the seaside. We went to Cromer and spent all morning on the beach.

Picklesdad even put on his fake Crocs and had a paddle in the sea where he made this beautiful castle with Picklessister.

Pickle also made some sand castles...this one.....

This signing, pictures and facial expressions to help those with learning difficulties such as autism communicate and is taught in over 40 countries.

Maybe next year then Sir Justin??

I am SO proud!

When we went on holiday I took Pickle's 'wordbox' from school. The name is a little misleading as it is not a box at all but a plastic, zip up folder containing 10 laminated printed words for Pickle to read. There are 36 of these to get through and I am proud to say Pickle only has about 3 more to go. This means she will be able to read all the 'high usage' words, which can be read phonetically.
How it works is, I show her the word and she reads it back to me, usually giving a meaning to the word, so I know she understands it.
One of the words on holiday was


Pickle : B R AN D......Brand......Is that like RUSSELL BRAND Mummy???


I am so proud of my 5 year old!
