End of Year 2 and Reception.

At the start of the year, this day felt like it was never going to happen, I remember that first day,  waving goodbye to my middle child as she walked into her new school confident and proud.

She continues to be proud and confident as she finishes her final weeks of reception, she loves school, shes grown so much in her year there, I just cant believe this year has gone by so fast and now my children are growing up so fast, Id love for time to stop so I can treasure them forever but I know I cant..

And of course my eldest, who has improved so much in such a small space of time, I cant praise his teacher enough for helping make 19 months of progress in 6 months, they had a terrible year one, with numerous teachers until finally settling on one that stuck around and I am quiet sad that his year 2 teacher is leaving to another school after the summer holidays, she was the perfect choice to get them to go from play to actually learning things and I am sad A wont have her as a teacher.. but I am so excited for year 3 for K and year 1 for A..

Its funny that how proud they are of their attendance, A was upset when she was sick one day and told me when she came home from the next day back how sad she was that she wont get 100% this year, I never pressured them into doing it, they genuinely feel proud and ask me to stick them on their wall in their bedroom, I am just blessed they both love and enjoy school..

This whole year in general has sped by, as we are now in July and slowly getting closer to my favorite time of year.. (keep those eyes pealed for Halloween stuff) and to the end of 2017, I cant help but look back and feel somewhat sad at it all, how far my blog has come, how brilliant my children have been at school, how much R has grown and become such a little character.. and how fantastic my husbands website is growing despite a few hiccups.

I cant wait for the rest of the year to begin in September when they go back after the summer, time honestly needs to slow down sometimes but watching them grow and learn..

Sometimes I can let it slip by.

    My twins are 2 next month and I can’t believe where the time has gone!
    I was a teacher and loved seeing how much children improved over the year but equally loved building that bond with each individual!
    It’s lovely to hear that your children love school.

    Such a bittersweet time. I love the milestones but they are always a tiny bit sad too!

    Wonderful to read that they both love school so much. We’re a couple of years off school but hope my boy has similar experiences x
