Can you believe it?! We have come to the end of our 365 Penguin adventures. Over the past year we have had a penguin delivered to our house every day. Take a look at our penguin year at a glance:
This is what 365 Penguins look like!
Just before the end of the year we took a few penguins with us on our holiday to Tenerife. Winter sun is just what the doctor order for us as a family. The penguins certainly couldn’t get enough of the Christmas decorations around the swimming pool.
I am sad to say we have come to the end of our story.
“Before we could say “kwak,” it was the end of the year. On December thirty-first, 365 guests in dinner jackets were in the house. But we had New Year’s Eve on the lawn.”
Throughout the year we have stored our penguins in Adams wooden play house. It looks as if it was made solely for the use of penguins!
During 2016 there have been many highlights of our 365 Penguins adventures. The biggest was getting a message from the author Jean-Luc Fromental. I hope we did him proud!
We managed to overcame the fact that 2016 was actually a Leap Year and had 366 days. The penguins also helped us to celebrate Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, the Queens 90th Birthday, Adam’s 4th birthday. They even came with us on four holidays – to Cromer, Bluestone in Wales and two holidays abroad to Gran Canaria and Tenerife. They have been on numerous weekends away and many day out adventures.
Throughout the year Adam has had is one favourite little penguin – Chilly.
“And life started to return to normal but the next day, the delivery man came to the door. Ding Dong!”
The question I get asked most about the penguins is – what next? How to fill the void of having a penguin delivered everyday? Adam assumed that we would be having a polar bear delivered throughout 2017 like in the story. However, until Jean-Luc Fromental writes a sequel or I work out a way how to make 365 polar bears we won’t be going down that route. However, on Janurary 1st 2017 there was still a knock on the door. Instead of a polar bear being delivered it was the 10 Little Penguins Stuck on the Fridge game. Now Adam and his 365 penguins can play with the magnetic penguins whenever they wish.
