I wrote another blog entry and then Terence told me that I was just being stupid and so I thought that maybe yes I was and so I removed it.
Today Bianca had an early finish at school as there are parent / teacher interviews at school today. And because it is such a lovely day Bianca walked home by herself. Tonight we'll quickly meet Bianca's teacher. It will be a great opportunity for Terence to actually meet him and to see where her class is. I met with Bianca's teacher last year already - just briefly and so he is well aware of my expectations for the year and I think we have a good plan in place to ensure Bianca will have a fantastic year. There is not much they can discuss just yet about learning progress, but my understanding so far is that Bianca has settled well into her new class. I'm looking forward to learning more about specific class expectations and routines because Bianca doesn't always give a full account of anything. You know you'll say to her "so what did you do in class today?" and she'll say "I forgot!". Sigh! Kids!
Tomorrow Caitlyn has her first school visit and I think she is feeling a bit scared and I am expecting tears. But hopefully after tomorrow she'll feel much more confident. Unfortunately some of Bianca's friends have been freaking Caitlyn out and they have decided to "gang up" against her and bombard her with questions about things they know she won't know, completely freaking her out until she is visibly upset. So we've started limiting some of the play dates for now.
Caitlyn's party venue is booked. She is so excited she can hardly wait. So today I'm writing out invitations and so on. It will mostly be what we did last year as that worked well. In less than 2 weeks Caitlyn will turn 5! It is so hard to believe.
Later this afternoon Bianca will have her first cheerleading session of the year and she is so excited. The setup has changed a bit and it will be interesting to see how things go. Bianca will be in the same team as last year and she is keen to do the competition again at the end of the year and possibly a duo with one of the other girls. So we'll see. It is nice that Bianca has found activities she really enjoys and is keen to stick with them.
Not sure what Caitlyn will want to do in the end. For now she'll only do swimming and other than that I'll just let her settle into year 1 this first term.
And other than that we're just having a quiet ordinary almost boring kind of day. How is your day going?
