Day 253

My baby goes to school!So, today my baby girl started school. Despite the fact that she is one of the youngest in the year having turned 4 about a month ago she is super ready to go to school!

She managed to get herself dressed all by herself this morning and then insisted on carrying all her bags herself. Little Miss Independent.

She had a wonderful, exciting day and I am grateful for a school community that is so nurturing and caring. Life is good and I cannot wait to see how much she changes over the next year.

I’m proud of you little girl. Be brave and strong but most of all, be kind.

Day 200

End of receptionWe’ve made it! The end of the first year at school!

There were a few tears (from Mummy) when we thanked his teacher Mrs Armstrong. She has been wonderful, committed and dedicated to The Little Mister and I am very grateful for all she has done for him. He has changed loads in a year and come on in leaps and bounds. You never forget your first teacher!

Day 40

Sir Edward the BraveToday at school The Little Mister had a Banquet Day. I am still relatively unclear what this means although it appears they have been doing about castles.

They were asked to dress up either as a knight, a prince or a princess and I even saw a few dragons. I raided my sisters dressing up box (a very reliable source of dressing up gear!) and The Little Mister or Sir Edward the Brave as he was known today, went off to school.

At the end of the day we were invited to go and see them dancing – he was less keen about this part of the day but it was hilarious.

An amazing day for The Little Mister was topped off by his first ever school disco. Amazing!

Day 37

HopscotchThe school car park is the coldest place on earth (or so it feels!). It seems that the wind whips up off the sea and wends it way up over the fields before screaming around the old school buildings. It is baltic! Not that it bothers The Little Miss though!

Day 33

Mrs ArmstrongThere is an fabulous exhibition at Candie Museum. The exhibition is Amazing Women – Yellow Chair Project’ – portraits of influential women in Guernsey by Olympia McEwan and it is fantastic.

This wonderful portrait is of Edward’s school teacher Connie Armstrong. Edward loves school and I think all his teachers are amazing but Mrs Armstrong has been amazingly inspiring, kind, strict (when she needs to be) but most of all, she’s great fun.

Today he arrived home with a spectacularly decorated pumpkin – I never thought a pumpkin could look so stylish!

A year in pictures – Day 276

The Wanachi Bear

The Mister did an excellent job of putting together the book for Tiggy The Wanachi Bear.

I think he should have got a star for excellent work!

HandsomeI can’t stop looking at these pics.

My boy is so cheeky and handsome!

I know. I hated people like me when I didn’t have kids. Sorry. Not Sorry.

A year in pictures – Day 254

First day at schoolToday marked another milestone – The Little Mister started at school.

He was so looking forward to going, and he was super ready in terms of development, but I always harboured a small worry that he might have a complete meltdown like he did when his swimming lessons changed.

However, we met his friends in the playground and he went in very happily with a smile on his face.

I am so proud to be Mummy to this little boy. He changed my life nearly 5 years ago and I am constantly grateful to have him and to enjoy him.

He said he really enjoyed school and he liked playing outside with his friends. He is looking forward to going back tomorrow. Another first done.

A year in pictures – Day 186

Enormous ice-creamThis afternoon The Little Mister went to the last of his settling in sessions. I think he enjoyed it as when he came out his first words to me were “Mummy next time I come back here I will be wearing my uniform”.

As a treat I took him down to Richmond Kiosk for an ice-cream. It was nice to have a little time with him on my own.
