Put Isla down for a nap and forgot I’d left some toilet rolls on the bed. Heard a rustling on the baby monitor and figured Isla had woken from her nap – went in to get her and found she’d helped herself to a little snack lol! Couldn’t stop laughing! (And don’t worry, I didn’t let her swallow any – she was just having such fun I had to get a couple of pictures!)
Well, es ist soweit – the little surprise bean that prompted the start of this blog started school!
In Western Australia, “kindy” starts when you’re 3 if your birthday is before June or 4 if your birthday is after June. Or something like that. I dunno, it’s bloody confusing, all I know is, Scarlett has an August birthday which meant she started kindy this year, not last. Kindy is usually part time and can be done at a primary school or community kindergarten. Scarlett is going to her local primary school where she’ll likely be continuing her schooling, and is doing five full days a fortnight.
We spent lots of time talking about how exciting it was to start school and we even got to meet her teacher in her classroom, so when the day came she was mostly excited with a little bit of nervousness thrown in. I knew that she was so beyond ready for this though and sure enough she kissed me goodbye happily and had a great day :-). She has been settling in wonderfully and the teacher has told me she is “an old soul” and “unique” (in a good way :-P).
Naturally I took a few photos to document the occasion :-) Aussie primary school kids usually wear school uniforms. I think it’s freaking adorable!
Time to resurrect my poor wee higglety pigglety blog! This year I’m participating in a 10 on 10 blog circle with some talented ladies - basically we each publish 10 images on the 10th of each month, with free reign as to what those images are. It should at least get me blogging again!
With the addition of my little munchkin Isla to the family (I really must blog about that sometime soon!), I felt it was only fitting that my first 10 on 10 post be of my wee sisters, who adore each other and keep me busy.
Once you’ve viewed my little crazies, it would be awesome if you’d click through to the 10 on 10 submission of the incredibly talented Marta Musa and continue to follow the circle to see more takes on our project!
Also, there are actually 11 images here. Because I suck at rules. Sorry not sorry.
