Back to school part 1

This week the summer holidays are coming to an end.

It has made me mostly feel emotional, somehow sad that my big girl will be going to school again and that she won’t be free to be home for five days in a row, every week for almost a whole year.
But after today things have changed a little bit.
My three year old is starting pre –school this school year and that’s something that I’m really excited about. I’m so proud that my little girl will be going to ( pre-)school for the first time.

She had been offered a place in two different play schools and she was supposed to start next week on Monday in one of them but today I decided to put her on the other play school which started their school year yesterday.

I started a course in child care last year and from September I will have to do work experience and it suited better if I put her on the school I've chosen now.

And since big sister is starting school this Thursday and the play school is in the same building and starts at the same time, I thought it would be nice for her to start this Thursday as well instead of tomorrow already .

This will also give me some time to get some last things sorted.
So today I went and got my three year old a lunch bag since she will have to bring her own lunch in this play school.(in the other play school they were providing a snack) She saw the Hello Kitty lunch bag in the shop and wanted it straight away. When I handed it over to her on her request she put it straight away in the shopping trolley. So cute! Later she held it in her hand but she gave it back so we could pay for it at the counter. Her toy phone apparently ended up in it as we noticed when the cashier wanted to scan it. My little girl is really growing up.

For my big girl Ix, I already had been shopping: new uniforms, stockings, shoes, vests and books. Tomorrow I have to get a few last things for both girls and then they will be ready for school on Thursday.
But since they are now starting on the same day, I no longer feel sad about Ix starting school again. Because the same day will be a big milestone for Yov and that makes me so excited, I can’t be sad at the same time.

I also went and got some info about another crèche where we potentially will put Nevaeh in the future.
It’s also not too far from where we live and apart from the price it seems to suit us well.

So I really feel blessed today. I also finally found a place to do work experience for the child care course. God is good, merciful and faithful. Glory to His name!


Vintage family photo shoot

Even though money is a bit tight at the moment, since DH is in between jobs, my DH has got himself persuaded to accept an offer for a family photo shoot for 15 euro.
I wasn’t too impressed when he first told me about it, because at these photo shoots they normally take more different pictures and then when you want to buy them all it is way more than you can afford.

But since he paid already there wasn’t much I could do about it. Yesterday we went to church and afterwards I went to get something in the shop and when I got back in the car, he asked if we were still going to get pictures taken. I had totally forgotten about it and looked in the car for the paper he got. We were supposed to be at the hotel for the photo shoot yesterday around that time. I read the paper better and it said that they provided clothing for kids and women and that men should wear a shirt and pants and I was wondering why.

Then I read it even better and realised that it wasn’t an ordinary shoot, it was a photo shoot in vintage clothing in the style of 1920-1930 which would be done in sepia. Then I got a bit excited, thinking that should be fun playing dress up and then getting pictures taken.

The girls and I got vintage dresses, hats and pearl necklaces and DH got a hat. They took about three pictures from all of us and then they took from the three kids and from each of the girls separately a few pictures. At the end we got a paper with different packages to choose from and the prices aren’t bad at all. We are supposed to get one big photograph free and also needed to pay a sitting fee of 5 euro when we arrived.

The pictures will be finished and ready for collection on September 5 so I’m really curious to see how they will come out And then I have to decide which pictures we’re going to take and which package. But overall it has been a fun thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.

How was your Sunday? I hope that you had a lovely day.

Stay well.

This is a picture of baby girl sitting on the beach. Picture was made at the end of march and edited in Picasa in sepia.

Back to blogging

For a while I’ve thought about getting back to blogging but every time I failed to really make time for it. This week, is a new week.
And I’m going to give it a try to start blogging regularly again.
I hope you will come by to visit my blog again and join me in the journey of motherhood.

Lots of love,
