In my world: First week of school

Shoes. Socks. Hankies. Water bottles. Uniforms.

Dawn. Alarm clock. Rousing. Stirring.

Toothbrush. Toothpaste. Too much (oops!). Gargling.

Breakfast. Change. Hurry flurry fasterly quickly. Goodbyes.

And off they go.

My daughter – confident big sister, eager to introduce her little brother to her teachers.

My son – in his still-room-to-grow new uniform, pulling cheeky faces at me, thinking nothing of classes and only of the playground.

The beginning of a brand new year of school, and routine.

Sometimes in the middle of cleaning the rooms, I discover little gems left behind by the children. This Friday series was started with the intention of celebrating the imagination and creativity in a young child’s world…and hoping that it’ll bring a little ray of inspiration and joy to your day, as it does mine.
