These summer holidays have come and gone so swiftly, it feels like we have been on a turnstile of activity. There were visits to the beach, sleepovers with cousins and friends, baking, playdates, and 1 or 3 trips to the cinemas to escape some of the extremely hot days. There were shopping trips and coffee dates, swimming, lots of relaxing and did I say we went to the cinemas? The girls and I have been enthralled by the new Disney movie, Frozen, but perhaps that's a story for another day.
And all too quickly the school year has come around again.
LittleBee had a little bit of a pre-teen, pre-school-starting meltdown yesterday. I don't blame her really, it was a stinking hot day and the holidays were coming to an end, and it all seemed too hard for her. But after a nice relaxing day at home, she faced the new year this morning with tons of excitement and anticipation. I think she was mainly fuelled by the fact that she can spend her weekdays with her friends again!
LadyBug wasn't as excited to send her big sister and favourite play mate off to school today. She told her sister that she was sad that she was going to be at school today, but will be happy when she gets home, so they can play together again (insert gushing here!).
It's hard to believe that it was 12 months ago that LittleBee started at her new school... check out these photos from her first day at school in 2013. My how my girls have grown!
I think LittleBee has grown about 2 meters taller in the last year. And looking at LadyBug, she just looks so different. She was only just 2 and a half, and now she's inching closer to 4 so I suppose that has made a huge difference.
So we sent our sunshine out to school for another year of learning and growing... happy first day at school LittleBee... I really hope this new year brings you lots of exciting experiences.
