Manor Adventure - Day Two

Hello everyone!
We have finally managed to find the Internet!! We have been very busy having a lot of fun already. Read below what some of our children have to say:

Luke - At first we woke up, had breakfast and then we headed straight out to do orienteering (map reading). After that, we went to do archery, this was very enjoyable but no one hit the bulls eye.  Lunch was a choice of hot dogs, cornish pasty, chicken satay, jacket potato, pasta and salad. Lunch was better than last night's meal.  Later, we are off to the disco. We are having a great time.

Greg - At first I was terrified  of the confidence course - this frame around trees which looks completely terrifying (to people like me!) Once you got going, it was fantastic and I think future Manor visitors should give everything they can a go! Missing everybody at home, but having a great time!

Mitchell H - Yesterday when we arrived at Manor we practised the fire alarm and had five minutes to unpack and then we were straight off to our first activity. It was the survival course, it was brilliant! We looked at different shelters, we even made our own and visualised a survival situation. We then built a fire using a flint and steel. The first day was amazing! We have had a busy day today, which has been fantastic!

Just a couple of snippets of what the children think of our week so far.  We are now using a fairly archaic computer as we cannot connect to wifi.  Unfortunately, we cannot upload photos - it doesn't seem to like it!

Apologies for this, we know how everyone likes to see the children.  They are however having a fantastic time. They are as muddy as you can imagine and beginning to look rather dishevelled.  The main thing is, they are HAPPY!!
Keep commenting.  We are reading them out to the children as we get them from our phones.
