Yay, School's Out!

 Sun setting, children frolicking, husband sipping wine and wife taking photos of the "happy is now" moments.

Well, my boys have finished Term One and we have 2 delicious weeks of school holidays to look forward to. Where did Term One go?... goodness time flies.We've had a great start to the year. I have a big boy who's favourite subject is now Maths (knock me down with a feather - used to be his least favourite and weakest subject). Isn't it amazing what a Subject Master for a teacher will do. He's very strict but cool and makes Maths fun. Our first A+ in Maths! ... and little one?...he now has a total fascination for insects of all types, following his 'mini beasts' science project. I keep finding insects in plastic lunch containers in various stages of decay all around the place. I usually smell them first before I sight them. A few containers have had to be binned unfortunately.

So no school today - might go to the park just around the corner. I'll take some photos while we're there. I haven't shown you our lovely local park yet have I.
Have a great day!

  5. Lucky you, I still have four lots of school lunches to make for another week, plus 3 parent teacher interviews, two cross countries, one day of helping with Easter crafts, one excursion and all those uniforms to wash.... is it any wonder I haven't had time to blog much lately. Enjoy the holidays!

  6. Love school holidays. When other mums talk about how they can't wait until the kids go back to school, they're never long enough for me.
    Enjoy every minute,

  9. Enjoy the holidays A-M. They fly by so fast.
    My hubby trains aspiring Primary teachers in Mathematics education and one exercise he did was to get them to draw a picture of their memory of a maths teacher they had had while at school. One looked startlingly similar to Hitler! So glad that your son has a great teacher. Hopefully he will be as fortunate in the coming years.
    Thanks for your encouraging comments. I have often wondered how I might turn my treasure hunting into a business. Still not sure really but that would be such a fun job!

  19. Hooray, we are on Hols too! Pretty much same picture as our house last night. Bubbles for the adults, kids carefree! plus rather dead pet stick insect decaying on a tissue on the kitchen bench awaiting its final goodbye.
