Another monthly update and today I want to talk about Schools and Birthdays!
We finally got our school placement email the day before yesterday, and… We got our first choice! Great news!
To be honest, towards the end of the waiting period I had come to the conclusion that whichever school they ended up going woud be more than fine. It’s just that Rooksdown is also so convenient! Definitely much closer than any of the other options.
So in the next couple of weeks we need to take proof of date of birth and of address to the school, and I am sure once they have confirmed all pupils, they will invite the parents over for a presentation. I only know this because I happened to find last year’s presentation online when researching the school before applying. In this presentation they give tips to the parents on how to prepare the children for school. So it will be interesting!
And the next topic is Birthdays! Birthdays are coming! Next month is going to be so busy! We have been invited to so many birthdays, it’s going to be non-stop!
Eric and Elisa’s party will take place at “More of the good stuff”, which is a quaint cafe in Dummer. We attended a birthday party there last year and the kids had a great time, so I decided that I wanted something like this, since I really didn’t like the Playdays experience last year. The party will be Pirate themed and the lady who owns the place will be organising games and more. I hope it’s a success!
Apart from this, also as an update, the twins spent three days with grandma and grandad at the beginning of the month. We dropped them off in Ratley on the Sunday night and didn’t see them again until Wednesday afternoon. I seriously thought it was going to be a disaster and that we were going to get the call from the in-laws to come and pick them up because they weren’t settling. But as it happens, they had a great time and didn’t miss us at all! Great experience, and hopefully we will able to repeat again in the summer. It will be fantastic if the grandparents can help during school holidays when E&E start going to school!
And this is pretty much it for now. Next month, another update!
