We have been baking for school lunches and prepping backpacks.
This photo was of my little girl at home and mine for the last time last week. A bit bitter and a bit sweet. Mostly sweet as she's very excited and such a keen learner.
We savoured a lot of sisterly time...
and the big two plotted their days before with a few runs to the shops for shoes and babychinos with mama.
... and then the morning came. They uniformed up and went out the door and on the bus (mama, dad, baby and little brother followed after in the car...)
She walked right up to the grade 1/2 classroom and demanded to know if it was her classroom. Not yet, sweetie. Prep for you this year.
She came home and plonked on the couch and read 2 readers to me.
Keen. Very keen.
...and Baxter... when asked what happend for his first day of school replied, "not much. Mum, when does Auskick start again?"
little king-pin is left at home - busy on the farm and here pictured talking to nanny after the kids left the house. Look at all that summer boy hair...
and mama enjoyed a halved amount of kid chaos for those 2 days last week.
Now to get some sleep organised for myself!
