Children In Need Day – Pudsey the Bear and Spotty Fun

Today Soren’s school raised money for the BBC charity Children in Need with the mascot Pudsey Bear.   Each child was to donate 50 pence which will be put towards the cause and they were to dress in Spot.  As not many boys own Polka Dotted clothing, many parents just put round stickers on clothes.  We didn’t have any stickers so we put duct tape on Soren’s shirt and spelled out Spotty Soren on the front.  In addition, Nursery and Reception took a walk in the woods for about 40 minutes where we took photos and explored nature.  After we came back and drank tea and cake (with raisins for spots) which the kids baked yesterday.   It was really a fun day for all and money was raised for a good cause.

Soren and Libby being the LINE LEADERS!

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
