So this week brings the return of routines, school runs, and an added pre-school drop off. Millie has started preschool two mornings a week, and she really loved her first session. Before leaving, she decided she needed to pack her “shchool” bag and was adamant the contents were required! Who was I to argue?
All I’m hearing is, “Three is big Mummy, I’m a big girl” … yes sweetheart, you are so very big now. At least it’s only two mornings a week to begin with, to ease me in gently 😉
Archie went back to school and up to year 1. He has a new teacher, and wasn’t too happy that his group had to “work” all day on his first day back. By today, Mrs W is flavour of the month and he tells me he was allowed to play on the computer. So, all in all he seems to be having a good first week back.
I decided to start a new little tradition of asking them a simple questionnaire at the beginning of each year … I’m hoping the answers will be fun to look back on in years to come.
