After a rough couple of weeks I’m so glad to report this week has been a much better one. There have even been a few causes to celebrate. I’m so happy I’ve got something positive to share for word of the week at last.
The school holds a parent-teacher meeting in early October which I think is a really good idea. It really helps to find out how your kids have settled in to the new school year. On Tuesday we went to meet with Jake’s teacher who gave him an absolutely glowing report. I was a little worried as Jake has been told me that he had no friends and didn’t know anyone’s name. Well this couldn’t be further from the truth, he has lots of friends and is very popular in class. Isn’t it funny the things they tell you, I’ve been thinking he is a loner when all the time he’s been the life and soul of the party. This definitely gave us cause to celebrate.
On Wednesday it was time to meet with Daisy’s teacher. As expected she got lots of praise, she loves going to school so this came as no surprise. Daisy loves to learn, she has a real thirst for knowledge which often leaves us turning to google for answers. The teacher also commented on what a friendly, kind and caring little girl she is which makes me very happy.
Wednesday also saw another cause to celebrate, Daddy turned 38 so we celebrated with a meal at the pub. There was much excitement for a mid-week treat. It was also a nice break from cooking and washing up for me too. Chris enjoyed his little celebration which we continued at home with chocolate cake.
