So sorry I've been missing nearly the whole of last week! Been a last minute rush in the build up to 'big school'. I don't know if other schools do this, but Reception class went in on their own today for a few hours before starting school proper next week.
So I spent the last week getting a few last minute things together before 'S' day - do you know how much school shoes cost?! I decided to get good quality shoes for Emily and ended up spending £30 on them.
I have made cards - 3 of 'em - but I'm hanging on before posting them. So instead here are a couple of pictures of my big girl.
The sensible picture:
More typical of my Emily:
Of course I have loads more pictures of her, but they have some of her friends in and I don't feel right posting them here.
Luckily after saying for most of the summer holidays that she doesn't want to go to big school, she went without a peep today! She was really quite tired when we collected her, so what she will be like on Monday for a full day is anyone's guess!
Sorry for no cards today, there will be next time I post and once the first week has gone I will be back into my little routines and posts and cards will appear on a more regular basis.
On the whole today has been much less painful than I ever thought and no tears from either of us! I had those on our last swimming session yesterday. Isn't it odd the driving to the pool listening to a child's CD and realising that this was my last daytime swimming session with her would set me crying, but it did!
Right then, enough waffle from me and I promise that my posts will not be so 'mumsy' now I am getting used to the idea that my baby is now my big girl!
So thanks for listening to me and promise cards on next post.
