I've been helping Ryder pack...we went through his collection of pamphlets and books.
Looks like he has got everything.
Now just got to find his clothes...Mum says that in 'typical boy fashion' they are discarded all over the place!
I'm sure I don't know what she is talking about!

Sadly the time has come to say goodbye to Ryder.
We have really enjoyed having him to stay, but apparently he really DOES have to go back to his family and school has already started so he has missed some!
We decide to hold a farewell party for him.
After the party which ended up quite rowdy at times as everyone vied for attention and to get a word in, Ryder took the time to say goodbye to each of us individually.
Well except the twins who do EVERYTHING together!
I don't think Ryder ever quite 'got' Francis and his peculiar ways.
Now Ryder just has to pack his bags and little treasures he collected while here and he will be off.
Thanks for staying with us Ryder, we hope you had a fun time.

The boys decided to go and have a game of ten-pin bowling and head off to the bowling alley.
Ryder aims carefully...
releases the bowl....
...and knocks down all but three of the pins.
Ryder and Simon have been busy chatting and don't realise how well Rory has done....
They come over and look on in astonishment!
Simon has his turn next.
It was a close game, but Henry and Rory just won...
