barry bear comes to stay

friday night we had a guest come to stay. someone who has never been to our house before. a weekend sleepover. barry bear. the school bear. 

ronnie was awarded the head teacher award on friday for his progress in phonics. he was given a certificate to bring home and show mummy and daddy how well he is doing. however together with that certificate comes the responsibility of looking after barry for the weekend.

today being a glorious sunny winters day, we took barry for a trip down the road to crystal palace park. he had much fun!

    Congratulations Ronnie! He must have been excited to have Barrie staying with you, too. Our Austin was jumping through the roof when Rachel Rabbit was sent home with him….

      it’s such a responsibility for them. he has made sure he is always safe, hence the seat belt!

    We’ve had Gerry the Giraffe from school before, looking through his diary in the 3 weeks prior to us having him, he’d been to london, Harry Potter world and Centre Parcs! We had absolutely nothing planned! The munchkin loved having him at home though!

      i didn’t expect for it to be so stressful, kept worrying we might lose him or dropping him in a puddle or something. can you imagine the shame with not taking barry or gerry back to school on the monday!
