I went and visited a Children’s Centre today with one of the girls I work with. It was exciting to see some of the resources that are in the community. I am not sure if Jackson, Mississippi has anything like this place. It was truly amazing and Coventry is very fortunate to have a place like this for families. There a section of the centre where parents could rent toys for their children free of cost and a garden in the back that the daycare children helped plant. I hope this centre will be able to make it through the budget cuts.
After that I met up with mom and we went shopping around the Coventry city centre. We also went to the Coventry’s market. I am glad she found it the day before because I will be sure to go back there. The market isn’t very big but they sell pretty much everything. The even have a food section with several meat and vegetable stands. There were also a couple Asian stands that will be perfect when Alvin comes to visit!!
Day 5 was the first day we got to have some down time. Mom was able to take a nap before we met up with another American Social Worker. Emily walked with us around to some of her favorite shops. I know mom was glad she was able to meet up with us because she showed us this really cheap clothing shop. After scoping out some great places to get bargains we went back to our hotel to get ready to go to Stratford-Upon-Avon. Melissa was very kind to offer to take us there for dinner.
The sun was going down when we got there but in my opinion it was the perfect time because the sky was so beautiful.
We ate a lovely meal which actually took a while for them to bring out. After we ate we went back to the hotel to get some rest. Before bed we watched our nightly TV show.. British Antique Roadshow (Mom's favorite)
Above and below are pictures from our day. Enjoy!
