I can’t believe as I write this that, a) it is already March and b) we still have snow! The first few months of the year are always busy in Casa Rice as both Ricicles have their birthdays which require a lot of planning/celebrating/parties/cake eating and we have also welcomed three lovely new starters. It is always fun getting to know the new little ones,  finding out their likes and interests and planning activities to help develop them.  I’m looking forward to the next few months and putting my ideas and plans into action. 

The Rices also had a brilliant Half Term break and we crammed in the fun with a trip back home to Sunderland, an outing to our family favourite Lotherton Hall, a first visit to Fountains Abbey and much excitement from all of us as we jaunted off to LegoLand for the first time. Oh and not forgetting our nerve-wracking (for one, anonymous adult Rice) turn on the Leeds Observation Wheel or the Leeds Eye which many are calling it. Our official Family Rice verdict; lots of fun, a fair price and great experience for your little ones if you can handle the heights. A thumbs up from all bar one of us who was unable to unpeel their hands from the  safety bar.

I hope this year is being kind to you all and if anyone spots Spring whilst on their travels can you send it our way please, it is very, very late!
