This time last year.... #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is....

It's crazy to think that in about 6 weeks the kids break up for the six week summer holidays....This whole year has flown over. It doesn't seem that long since I was sat crying at Becky's leavers assembly.....

This time last year we were visiting Becky's secondary school that she would be starting in September and meeting her new teachers....I was worrying like mad....Would she be OK? Would she make friends? Would she cope with the work? She was, did and has....In a few weeks time she won't be a newbie at school....There will be a whole year group below her....

I am really sad to see this school year is coming to an end.....Ellie's teacher Miss T has been amazing....Someone who is strict but nice with it....It has been just what Ellie has needed....All her teachers in the past have been a walkover and Ellie has known this.....Her behaviour has greatly improved especially since Christmas and I will be so sad that Miss T won't be teaching her next year....I just hope her new teacher has the same effect.

It came up on my Timehop app on my phone that a year ago yesterday Becky and I went to see One Direction in concert....

 
How is that a year ago! 

This last week we have made lots of new memories that we will be able to look back on in years to come....We've been to the park, had water fights, baked cakes and other yummy treats, watched dvd's, played Minecraft and enjoyed the week of Britain's got Talent.....Every night has been a late night for the kids which has resulted in lazy mornings which has been absolute bliss!

  2. So lovely to look back over the year - so glad that Becky has settled in so well to her secondary school and that Ellie's teacher has been just what she needed. It's crazy how quickly the time flies isn't it? Hope you have a lovely weekend x

  4. Oh yes, I remember you going to see One D, too! The year has flown by. Like you, this time last year I was getting upset about my Boo starting school in September, but now she's coming to the end of her first year. I'll be sad as I like her teacher, too. Oh well, time rolls on! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

  11. Gosh, time just goes by so quickly doesn't it! I can't believe that in 15 days time we'll be half way through the year already...scary thought, huh?!
    It is lovely to look back - my children would be so jealous of you going to a OneDirection concert! - but sounds like you're also making some lovely future memories too
