Wow! Well, so I knew that this last week would be a pretty busy one, but I hadn’t quite anticipated just how busy it would turn out to be… but it was all good 🙂 .
1) Between my normal parent help session with primary 7, attending a parent information session on Big Writing, helping out with the organisation of the annual Prize Draw with the Parents’ Association, and then a couple of long sessions helping at the Travelling Book Fair, I seemed to spend most of last week in the school! But it’s fascinating – I love the insights and understanding this gives me of school life, and how different each teacher’s style is, but mainly what my children are experiencing in all those hours they are away from me. And I’ve been very impressed with what I’ve seen 🙂 .
2) This weekend we celebrated my sister’s birthday, with a big family celebration last night. It was a fab night, and we all enjoyed catching up, especially with some family members we haven’t seen in ages… K and I made her a special birthday cake, which certainly contributed to the lack of blogging this week!
3) Yesterday A took part in a Boy’s Brigade Figure Marching competition – and his company came first 🙂 , and M had an Gymnastics exam, and attained her Level 3 certificate. So we’re extremely proud of them both 🙂 .
