On Sunday we went to the National Coal Mining Museum with our friends. The weather was very miserable but it didn't stop us having a fantastic time. The dad's took the older six children down the mine on the guided tour, you have to be over 5 to go down there and so this was Ruben's first ever visit down there. The last time we visited it was our very first month of home education back in January 2007 and I can't believe its been 4 years! Ruben really enjoyed the trip down but he said he didn't want to go down again because the battery pack was too heavy. You have to have the battery pack for your torch in case you end up having to walk back out of the mine! Here is a picture of Cordelia and her best friend after they had come out of the mine, they were very grubby!
