One down, two to go!!

One down two to go!!

School holidays are officially over and today my first child went back to school. Harry one of my twins started High school today it was quite a nerve wrecking experience walking him into school this morning and I will admit I was really nervous all day.

Thankfully I am happy to report that Harry had a really good first day and is looking forward to going back tomorrow.

Tomorrow George my oldest is back ready to commence senior school as a year 10 student and on Friday it’s Madelyn’s turn.

Not sure how I feel about this staggered start. One thing is certain though by the end of the week I will officially have three high school students, let the fun begin I say 🙂

Last day of primary school

Today was the last day of primary school for my twins. As of next year they will be heading off to high school embarking on the next phase of their lives.

The future is exciting and filled with so many possibilities. All I could think of was how it had felt waking them into the school on their first day of prep. How excited they had been and how nervous, it’s like we have come full circle in 6 weeks I will be waking them into high school. How quickly the time has passed.

To signify the end of the year, the school hosted an all school assembly and all the Grade 6 children got to stand up the front and perform their grade 6 graduation song which this year was Justice Crew’s Que Sera.

There were many tears shed, mainly by the mums.

Grade 6 ended with a bang at the after party where the kids got to sing and dance and take lots of selfies.

In a perfect world

Oh the never ending saga of cleaning the house only to have it all messed up again in a short few hours!!!

In a perfect world you would only ever need to do housework once a week and the house would stay impeccably cleaned tidy for the full seven days.

In a perfect world the dishes would miraculously find their way into the dishwasher and not on the kitchen bench. In a perfect world the laundry basket would always be empty, dust would never gather and all the pets hair would stick to the pets and not the furniture. The kids rooms would be tidy and the beds always made.

Thank god we do not live in a perfect world, I may at times grizzle and complain that the housework is never ending but truth be told I wouldn’t have it any other way. Would you?
