Our boy (now 6 yrs old) is doing so well at school! He has just been asked to join the year above class in both Maths and English. So from now onwards, he will study twice a week with Year 2. It's fair to say we are very proud parents!

The capital is spoiling us with beautiful weather today so Anna and I took the kids to Grosvenor Square in Mayfair.
Anna's older boy Nick (above pic) was looking after Scarlett Grace to ensure she didn't go on the muddy grass, and we sipped on our take away cappuccinos :-)
