Well...my big girl is all ready for Grade 1. This year she gets to wear the real school uniform which is much nicer than last year's prep uniform - a bottle green skirt and yucky synthetic yellow polo shirt. E. was so excited when we bought her uniform she had to wear it all day - even though it was unwashed and starchy. The new matching scrunchies went into her hair and soon she was posing with a hydrangea posy from the garden. It amazes me how unselfconscious 6 year olds can be - no hesitation about primping and admiring oneself in the mirror or showing off for an audience. I guess she'll acquire some decorum at some stage.
I am probably boring my readers (all five of you!) senseless with endless photos and ramblings of my children, puppy and garden but there's honestly not too much else going on in our little lives. And, focussing on the little pleasures and capturing the moments on the camera help keep me sane amidst the Groundhog dayness of it all.
I hope everyone has a happy time next week getting your little ones off to the first day of kindy/school etc. I'm not sure when school starts for you, Tammie, in the US. Is it autumn?
PS Can't get any line breaks happening in this post today. So annoying. I don't usually write in one large paragraph like this.
