This week I’ve mostly been thinking “how is it November already”? The kids went back to school/preschool this week. We had a really nice break – especially from the hectic school runs and the never ending homework. However I am quite happy to be back into our normal routine. I really appreciated my 3 kid free mornings.
I thought I’d do a little round up of the lessons I’ve learnt this week.
Kids can be a little too honest sometimes!
Monday was parent/teacher consultation day. My chance to meet Sofia’s class teachers and see how she is getting on in key stage 2. There was lots of positive feedback. Sofia when asked what method she used to practice her weekly spelling dropped us in it by saying “We always forget to learn them so I just guess!”
If my daughter won an Oscar I would explode!
Sofia won a head teacher award certificate for effort – I was as happy as I’d be if she’d won an Oscar or a Nobel prize!
Don’t rest your eyes
We had a lovely end to the week with movie night where we let Sofia stay up late once a month. Sofia chose the Princess and the Frog. I rested my eyes for a brief moment in the middle and missed a tiny bit of the story!
Double check the invitation before you leave the house
The boys were invited to a birthday party for one of their preschool friends. It was only in the village so we set off walking in the rain. When we got there the village hall was locked and I realised that we were at the wrong village hall. It was a long, wet and very grumpy walk to get to the right place. It was a lovely party and the kids got over being late and soaked.
I need to rein n my nerves for my driving test
I have my driving test coming very soon and my driving lesson this week went really well. I’m mainly trying to perfect the manoeuvres. Reversing round a corner is my Achilles heal (I’m so willing this to not to come up on my test). I’m really worried that my nerves are going to get the better of me and need to find a way to keep them under control.
My kids watching fireworks restores my faith in human nature
I love watching fireworks even more so since having children. Seeing Sofia’s face seeing the fireworks is pure joy. We also took the boys to their first firework display. It made me so happy to see the wonder in their eyes.
We may live in England but my kids have South America in their genes
There was a Samba band at the firework display we went to and Sofia, Sam and Leo started spontaneously dancing along. They really are little Latinos!
I wonder what lessons the coming week will have in store……………..
