Of course this weeks word had to be school, it’s been all about getting ready and then finally going. Daisy is now in year 2 and Jake is officially a big boy who goes to school all day. It’s been a funny old week with lots of mixed emotions, the house is so quiet and I’m not sure whether to feel sad or happy about it.
The first week has gone really well, Jake has happily settled into his new routine and Daisy is thrilled to be back with her friends. Jake hasn’t eaten much at lunch time which is a worry, the teacher is keeping an eye on it which reassures me a little. It feels so strange not to have him home for lunch asking for his usual peanut butter sandwich and crispies.
Another new addition to Jake’s routine is a reading book. At this stage it’s just to get used to him bringing a book home but in no time at all he will be reading it to me I’m sure. He has always loved listening to stories so I’m hoping he will follow in Daisy’s footsteps and love reading too.
Daisy has already had her first letter home about a school trip, she will be going to the museum next month. Her class is learning all about the local area and its history which sounds like fun.
All in all it’s been a good week but the kids are ready for the weekend. I’m not sure they will be happy about getting homework though.
