Before we went to Devon we had been expecting a rather exciting parcel to arrive...however it didn't arrive until after we had left...what was in the package? Well some goodies for Henry and Harry. A pair of fabulous jeans each, some wellie boots, a couple of sleeping bags...I think the boys are planning on sleeping out tonight. A gift from Harry for Henry (which he hasn't given Henry yet" The lovely teddy bear that Harper gave the girls and of course some clothes for Harry.
There was also a little someone special in there...
A brother for Henry. Yes that is right.
Henry takes the little toddler by the hand.
"Hello Claudius, I'm your new brother Henry and this is Simon"
Harry wanders over.
"Hello Claudius, you will love it here it is great fun!" Harry reassures Claudius, who is still looking up at Henry rather in awe of him.
"I thought we would play with the tram" Harry suggests.
Claudius and Simon watch the boys playing with the tram.
"This is like the tram we went on down in Devon" Henry tells Claudius. "It is such a shame your journey took so long, you would have loved it down there".
Simon and Claudius continue to watch the boys re-enact their tram journey. Simon then wanders off to get some cars so that he and Claudius can join in the game.
He gives Claudius a little truck to play with and then gets down on the floor himself to join in the game. Henry chooses a car to play with as well, while Harry sticks with the tram. Claudius continues to watch the game shyly.
I don't think it will take him long to join in the fun. It is such a lovely day out there today I am sure the boys will all be traipsing outside soon to set up their 'camp'.
