A reminder this week that even though we are all stuck in lockdown, the world still turns. We may have celebrated VE Day quite differently from how we would have under "normal" circumstances, but actually we can all learn from a 7 year old's outlook.
She is so determined to complete her 400 mile cycle ride to raise as much money as she possibly can for the NHS. This week she has cycled more than 60 miles and has virtually visited a number of friends along the way. That along with school work, us parents both trying to work full time and creating 24 pieces of VE Day art to cover the front window panes, I have no idea where she gets all this energy! This morning I suggested a shorter ride so she can rest. She readily agreed ... and then set off on a 10km trip!
Whenever we are out and about and people wave at her, she is absolutely thrilled, and always asks if I think they have seen her on the blog or videos. So if you do see her, please smile and wave and maybe even enjoy a little "Go Anya!" That would make her day!
Despite all that's going on at the moment, we saw the biggest smiles this week when Anya got a little surprise from her teacher, and a lovely message from the Head. It was definitely the best decision to educate Anya at Burbage Primary School, thank you for helping us all through "schooling from home"!

Thank you for reading! More next week!
At the start of Lockdown Anya, 7, decided that she wanted to virtually visit all her friends and family since she knew she would really miss them! So, as a family, we started to use our daily exercise time to cycle (luckily we have some beautiful surroundings!) and kept a note of how far she got!
