Back to normality....

We have had so much fun over the Easter holidays....Sleeping till about half eight....Having a relaxed breakfast....Getting dressed at about 10am.....The kids played outside everyday....They've enjoyed making their own lunches most days and even learned how to cook scrambled eggs....They've watched Frozen at least once a day....Played outside some more and went to bed at about 9pm.....It's been lovely!!

Today they go....


 Back to getting up at 7am....Dragging them out of bed.... Getting them washed, dressed and trying to feed them a decent breakfast which usually ends up in a cereal bar on the way to school....School runs....Homework....Finding lost uniforms....Early nights and less fun! Boo!! Hiss!!

Today marks the start of the Summer term for the girls at school.....

This is an important term for both of them.....They both have their SATs (Statutory Assessment Tests) this term.....I'm not too worried about Ellie's they're pretty low key but for the last few months the teachers at the school have made such a fuss about Becky's year 6 tests....

The amount of homework Becky brought home over the Easter Holiday was unbelievable.....Lots and lots of practice SAT papers....

Becky isn't bothered or phased by them at all....From what her teacher has said she is expected to do very well.....I still worry though.....

This also marks the last full term that Becky will be in Primary school.....In September she goes to the Secondary school....She can't wait! I'm terrified!!

I really hope these next few months go really slowly....

  2. Yep, back to reality. We are trying to drum it into G about sticking in at school from now on. Its hard to make them understand how important it is.

  4. Did you not hate it when everyone says 'they grow up too fast'? Then I realise that years have slipped by, DB is going to preschool this September and I want to stop time!
