The little ones went to school for the start of the new school year today. We had two very excited little boys here this morning. One bursting with excitement to see all his friends again and the other desperate to see what all the excitement was about.
They looked so cute in their new uniforms, shiny new shoes and schoolbags that always seem slightly too big.
Thankfully, they both had a great day. The littlest finished up early and will continue to do so for the month of September, easing them in gently. The second changed classroom and teacher and is full of beans about all the fun things he will be doing this year.
I am so pleased that school is the fun place it is now. I always loved school but I know that others were not so lucky. Times and attitudes have changed and teachers are so wonderful now, it seems that most little ones really enjoy their first experience of school. Here's hoping the enthusiasm continues.
And on the home front, I should have started the cleaning I had promised myself would be top priority but instead I wandered around the garden taking photos of wildflowers and my apple tree. I can't quite believe it has produced apples the same year we planted it. I snuggled with the little fairy, perused my new copy of Mollie Makes and drank copious amounts of tea. Oh well, tomorrow is another day.
