Starting school

Big news - Tom started school last Monday! He seems to have really settled in and is loving it so far - though he is so tired that most days he has been in his pyjamas by 1.30pm (he's only doing mornings at the moment!).

And this has left me with a little bit more do housework, or shopping, or school planning, or......
I had a lovely time last week. I spent one morning making cards, another scrapbooking and another meeting a friend for coffee at Barleylands and visiting Sugar and Spice! Very little housework got done! Maybe this week....

I spent my scrapbooking morning catching up on the children's school albums. I've got a school album for each of the children. As well as the school photos, I have also included ballet and swimming and brownies stuff...and there are also plastic pockets to hold certificates and other memorabilia. This is one project I am deternmined to complete!

I had a lovely time looking back at their 'first day at school' photos - and enjoyed using these gorgeous letter stickers from Echo Park.
