Hello dear friends,
I am a bit that with this post but like the saying goes better late than never!
We have had a good start to the first week back, Monday morning the usual start of school photos were taken much to my fourteen year olds disgust, but mum won this year, I guess it will get more difficult the older he gets.
Fourteen year old, can you see there is a smile desperate to sneak out.
Baby girl, how can she possibly be year six this year.
My darling nine year old, and happy to be going back to school for the first time ever!
The baby who is quickly becoming a big boy but will always be mummy's baby
I am so proud of all of them they have followed my new plan of getting up in the morning and making their beds and tidying their rooms before they come down to breakfast each morning.
On the whole they have managed to pack there own lunches each except for the fourteen year old who had his little sister make it for him one day because he couldn't be bothered and she didn't want him to starve, bless her little heart.
They are all reading to me on a daily basis and even though they are not getting homework yet, they are doing little bits that they feel they need to practise.
My daughter wrote her speech today as she would like to become the house captain.
My nine year old was using a compass for the first time today and came home and made his teacher compass flowers that he coloured in for her.
My eight year old who is dyslexic has been doing lots of extra reading.
I have been taking a healthy lunch each day that I made at the start of the week together with a couple of pieces of fruit. I have also had breakfast each morning and no snacks.
We haven't been running yet this week but we are back to walking and when my nine year old is less tired we will start running again.
The house is remaining nice and tidy for the time being. Fingers crossed that it carries on that way.
Well that's it from me for tonight.
Take care xx
