This week seems to have gone by so incredibly quickly, how we got to the end of March so fast as well I do not know. There have been a few reasons for excitement this week, one even includes a nice night away for Chris and I. Here a few more reasons why it’s been an exciting week.
The kids were intrigued to see the play area on their playground cordoned off last week. There was much excitement when they found out that they were getting some new equipment to play on. They have eagerly been watching the progress all week. Finally, on Thursday they were allowed to play on the new climbing frame, monkey bars and exercise equipment. Our school has a brilliant selection of activities and equipment for the kids to play with at break times already but these shiny new things have caused a whole lot of excitement for both the infants and the juniors.
Chris and I are spending a night away this weekend, I won a hotel break with meals included a few weeks ago. We are not going far from home but I’m excited to be spending some time together just the two of us. It’s not something that happens often so I think it makes us even more grateful when it does. The kids are also excited about this as their granddad is staying over to look after them, they will drive him up the wall no doubt.
There’s also been mounting excitement as the countdown to our summer holiday continues. We bought a suitcase this week and the last of the clothes and footwear we needed so it’s all starting to feel very real now. It will be the kids first time ever on a plane and my first flight in over 10 years. I’m not a massive fan of flying but at this point the excitement outweighs the fear.
