Theo’s first week at Primary School has flown by. We had five days of good weather which meant we were able to start well with pick ups and drop offs by walking every morning and only doing two pick ups by car.
On the second occasion that I left Maggie parked outside the school I returned to find an envelope on my windscreen addressed to the “Morris 1000 owner.” I thought I was about to be told off for parking in the wrong spot, but it was actually a note from someone who wanted to buy her! Theo was quite distraught at the very idea we might contemplate selling, but I reassured him she’s not going anywhere!
Like many children Theo started in reception last week part-time, doing three full days and two half days, but protested quite strongly about being taken home early, so this week he’s up four full days and next week I suspect he will full-time.
It’s so lovely to see him enjoying himself and getting so much out of school already. We are particularly lucky to have such a lovely village primary close by and great kids and parents who attend. There are lots of after-school clubs, outings and even French lessons, plenty for him to get his teeth into over the next few years.
There was one more thing that made last week significant too, Theo managed two separate appearances on television! The first was with me as part of a piece about summer born babies on the BBC News and the second when his school pal Monty was filmed on his first day for Good Morning Britain. Quite a start to school life!
