Our walk to school is lovely (on a nice day) and we get to go past a Fire Station, fishing pond and right before we get to the school some lovely old trees. This is a great spot for conker picking and everyday Lucas has to stop and see what he can find, our little conker stash has been pretty good this year thanks to this lovely horse chestnut tree. I love to watch him searching for them and he loves it if we can find one still in it’s shell. It’s nice to think that every Autumn will be the same and we’ll be able to raid this tree every year. At the end of the school day you can hardly move for children here but when we go in at lunchtime we get it all to ourselves so we get to pick the very best conkers.
