Living Arrows 2019 37/52

Welcome to Living Arrows post 2019! If you haven't heard of the linky before, This was set up by Donna at What the Redhead Said and the name comes from the poem by Kahlil Gibran "You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth" Each week I post one photo of James and one photo of Freddie and share what they have been up to that week!

So Freddie had his first proper day at the school nursery last week and he went running in! He took his Moo with him which I was a bit shocked at as he never took Moo to playgroup with him! He had a few tears in the classroom when he realised he was not going to see James and then cried on the way home as he wanted to stay!

James has been having a lovely week at school and is really enjoying himself in Year Three! He had his first swimming class and also his first meeting back at Beavers! Its been so hard to get photos of James on his own now he's back to school!

Siblings September

Welcome to the Siblings project for September!
Its the ninth month of the year and we now only have three more months of siblings posts for 2019!

This months photograph was taken just a few days ago on Freddie's first day of nursery at James school foundation unit!

I cannot believe Freddie is in nursery already as James was in this nursery with the same staff when Freddie was born!

I cannot believe how tall Freddie is compared to James! There is three years between them and Freddie is catching up James in height fast!

To Freddie On Your First Day Of Nursery

Our Darling little Freddie Bear

Today is 12th of September 2019 and it is your first proper day of Nursery at the local primary school. You had an hours visit before the summer holidays and you loved it! You then had a home visit last week from your new teacher and then just a few days ago you had another one hour visit. 

Today is the start of your formal education in the school we hope you will attend till you are eleven!

You are one of the first children to start and for that mummy and daddy are so glad as James was one of the last to start so he went into a big class, where as you will be there when it is small and gets bigger. Your class is actually quite a small one, so more children may join as the year goes on. When we visited the other day you actually told me to go away!

I hope you will be ok making the change from playgroup into the school, you are pretty lucky as a few of your little friends from playgroup are making the move with you so there will be some familiar faces for you in the classroom.

Unlike James you are very used to being away from mummy as you have been going to playgroup since just after turning two for 6 hours a week then once you turned three you did 15 hours a week at the playgroup to get you ready for going into the school.

We hope you have a fantastic first day our little bear

love

Mummy, Daddy and James

So James is officially back to school! He had a great first four days of year three including a trip! He is so loving his pack lunches! 

Freddie had a successful home visit with his nursery teacher. He was telling her what music he likes which for a three year old is pretty funny as it's things like Jonas Brothers, Westlife, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello and everything mama listens too!

To James on your first day of Year Three.

James as this goes live you will be an hour into your first day of Year Three.

Its so hard to believe this is your fourth year of full time school and your fifth year at the primary school if you include nursery. 

It seems so crazy that you are now in key stage two! It really only seems five minutes since you started nursery and now you are in the senior part of the school!

You have so much to look forward to this year starting with a trip on Friday and then your trip to Kielder next month! I know you will have a fantastic time on your Kielder trip and I know you will be OK as you have done nights away with Beavers!

Have a fantastic first day off school and I can't wait to hear all about it tonight! 

Love
Mummy

Today is the last day of the school holidays! James goes back to school tomorrow. Freddie does not have his first day at nursery till next week but he also has his home visit from his nursery teacher and his nursery TA tomorrow!

Yesterday was James birthday party! We had some of his friends over to our house and we did a Be My Bear party kit where each of the kids got their own blue bear to stuff and name!! We chose to do this as it gave the kids an activity to do and worked out cheaper than making party bags! Each child left with their own bear along with some cake and sweets. 

Last week mummy, daddy and Freddie came home on Tuesday, while James had a few extra days at nana and gaga's house. He came home on Wednesday so we could take the boys to buy their shoes for school on Thursday morning ! James also needed PE shoes, trainers and wellies plus Freddie needed wellies as he is going to be starting forest school sessions at nursery!

We also did some hunting for Elmer which was so much fun!

Today is actually James 7th Birthday!!

Last week was so much fun! We started the week off by going to watch our family friends son compete in the World Transplant Games in Newcastle! We were so proud to cheer on Luke!! James went running off ahead with Luke's dad to get a spot on the bridge while I came up at the rear with Freddie in the stroller! We also went to Build a Bear so James could do count my candles for his birthday bear!

Freddie has done so well with his potty training! He now asks to go when he needs to go and we have successfully been out and about with him for days and he has been dry when we got home! He was so good when we were in town to watch the cycling. He did have his moments of being grumpy, but he had a great time!

We had so much fun at nana and gaga's including a trip to the beach to look in the rock pools, building sandcastles, a trip to Warkworth Castle, a trip to the dairy farm for ice cream or sorbet in Freddie's case! 

Hard to believe its the last week of the holidays and James goes back to school next week!
