5 - To Sebastian - September 2010

 Dear Sebastian,

Did you know we’ve been to see Auntie Shelley and Uncle Jules?  I think you do, because you spoke with us on the computer and saw them with us didn’t you?

They live in London, and we went to see them on a train.  Not an old choofy train like Thomas though.

The train we went on was a ROCKET train.

It went really, really, really fast!

It was even faster than you going down a hill on your scooter!

We went through a really, really long tunnel.

Can you see what we could see out of the window when we were inside?

It was very dark.

When we came out, the sun was shining and we could see cows and fields and villages with big tall churches.

Can you see which field is full of ripe yellow corn?

How many cows are there?

I was sure there were some sheep too, but they must be in the barn, or having a sleep.

Give yourself a great big hug from us,

Love Papa and Jojo

4 - To Sebastian, September 2010

Dear Sebastian,  

Did you know we’ve been visiting castles here in France?   

Usually they are high on a hill and sometimes we can see our boat from the top of them.

They have been there for a very long time, they are even older than GG.

 Some of the castles are so old that they are falling down, but we still go to visit them and look down at people.

Can you see me waving from the top?

There are lots of zig zag steps to get to the top of this one aren’t there?

 Last week when it was  very dark and only the moon was out, I thought I saw a witch flying across the sky!

 But Jojo said it was just the leaves falling from the trees in the wind.   I think she was right, do you?

Autumn is coming and lots of the trees are starting to change colour.  Did you know they start off green?  I’ll bet you did!

They go yellow, then orange and red and then slowly they all turn brown and the leaves fall off till winter.

Can you see the pile of leaves in the picture?

Give yourself a great big hug from us,
