We had a fantastic day at the National Gardening Show but I will do pictures in another post about that, saw some amazing exhibitions and some amazing stalls to buy things too.
The big news this week is that our beautiful daughter has started school, and oh she was excited to start and is loving every minute of it. She thinks her teacher is great and has proclaimed she wants to be a teacher. It was lovely on the first day as there were only a few children starting - just those born in Autumn/Winter, and today the Spring children started, the Summer ones start next week. We're hearing all about what they are doing and it all seems like such fun. She is attending mornings only for a while before staying for lunch and then the early afternoon.
So all good news, she went in first, happy as anything and without a backward glance - glad we got some hugs and a kiss before the door opened. The school is lovely, has a bit of woodland, with a wooden playground area, a vegetable garden, and other play areas. Inside there are a few rooms they use well equipped with lots of sturdy wooden toys. A whole wooden home corner with cooker sink, etc; Wooden dolls house, fire station and tree house dwelling; lots of wooden people, toys and more. Then there are all the books, reading corners, the craft room, computers, chill out areas, and no doubt things I've forgotten or that we haven't discovered yet! A happy environment.
So more catching up soon, but busy at the moment with school starting, many family birthdays coming up next week and a little girl's 5th birthday soon too. So a little crafting is in progress too for that and for Autumn which appears to be here now. Every day we come home with a handful of Autumn colours in leaves and acorns and chestnuts and conkers. Plenty for the season corner that needs an update.
