Isis First Day Back at School – Year 4
This morning was a crazy chaotic rush. We don’t have the girls on a Monday so you may think that we’re cuckoo with it being Year 4, but we wanted to be there for Isis first day back at school. Since we moved back in March, we’re not a 5 minute drive anymore and I woke up with a horrendous headache. We really wanted to see her though, so we got the babies ready and grabbed the camera and off we went.
We got stuck in traffic coming off the motorway which was a nightmare so we didn’t get to actually walk with them to school (it’s a 5 minute walk), but, we did meet them as they were walking up to the school. Isis was so happy to see us. It was lovely to be there and her Mum said that Isis was very excited when she knew that we were coming to wave her in for her first day back.
These are the days where it is hard choosing to love them as my own, as they are not my own, but I really wanted to have been there getting her ready this morning, ironing her clothes, packing her lunch bag, styling her hair, but she already has a Mummy for that, and I am privileged to fill in when they are at our home. We have extended our days again with the girls, now that I am into the swing of things with the 2 babies and will be collecting the girls Thursday after school and dropping them back on Sunday afternoons.
I am so proud of Isis Mae going into Year 4. She says that she wants to be an actress at the moment when she grows up. I could see this happening if she was tenacious in her pursuit but we’ll see how her little life progresses. She would definitely be a triple threat with her dancing and singing too.
I start teaching the choir at her school as well this week, and they want me to go in for ‘Super Learning Day’ on Wednesday to work with the children. Will see how it goes…. I’m sure there will be a few blog posts about this (I’ll be working with the play therapist who I have not got along with so should be interesting)…
Shayla starts her first EVER day at school next Monday so we’ll be travelling to be with her for that too. The joys of parenthood and being part of a blended family… wouldn’t swap it for the world *winks.*
