I've missed a few weeks, what with one thing (laziness) and another (too busy).
Lucy at Sports Day. She is very good at the things that involve following the rules, and not so good at things like running very, very fast. We are going to work on that.
Hattie at Sara and Reuben's wedding. She had a great time, and hasn't taken that cardigan off since.
I'm not sure this is from the right week, but I can't find a better one. It's from my strike day; the best bit was when I went to pick up the children and we went for ice cream. Very expensive ice cream.
Lucy has been doing ballet for a while now, and took 2 exams in May. She's very young to be doing exams, but actually, she wants to do it properly and they help her focus on what she's doing and why. I don't force her to do anything she doesn't want to do, and as long as it's making her happy, she can carry on doing it. Her great friend does Modern dance, so Lucy's been doing it for a few weeks. She's getting the idea of it. Next year, both girls are going to be in a show in a professional theatre. Brace yourselves.
Hattie on the tag-along. Her legs aren't quite long enough to reach the pedals, and she didn't really enjoy it very much after a few minutes. Lucy was her age when she started riding on the tag-along, which shows how much taller Lucy was than Hattie.
