Proud & Happy.00:00
So there's less than seven weeks left of the school year. Seven weeks left of Harry being in year 7, Charlie in primary school and Ellie in year 3. In September they'll all go up a year which is a big deal to me and of course to them. Charlie starting high school is just... I can not believe it. He'll be joining his big brother at the same high school and I'll only have one child at primary school. That's going to be so strange to me. I honestly find it so hard to get my head around that.
I am SO proud of them all. I'm proud that they're all well behaved at school (- for the most part - touch wood), they all knuckle down and do there very best.
Charlie is more than ready for high school, he's super excited about it! He's also looking forward to being in the same school as his big brother again. He's excited at the thought of catching the school bus to and from school! I think he feels very grown up about the above. He is looking very forward to induction days and what not. He's been having grumpy and moody moments lately, I expect it's the build up to high school and the last few weeks of primary school, perhaps even hormones. Harry went through this phase too. Can't wait for the moodiness to subside I must say! Hecan be very cheeky and mischievous which he finds hilarious. Especially when he jumps out on me at 7am with "BOO GOT YA" as I come out of the bathroom. I jumped out of my skin! Haha. He thought it was hilarious!
Ellie doing great, too. She has her moments where she can be a stroppy little madam, what child doesn't? She can also be quite bossy but she's really well behaved at school, which is the main thing! She can also be quite outspoken which can be a little bit embarrassing at times. Maybe being outspoken and saying what you think is a good thing?.. to an extent. She still enjoys playing with dolls.. shopkins and my little pony! She's so sweet and comes out with the funniest things sometimes. Can't believe she'll be nine in September. She's recently joined an after school choir club which she enjoys. They're learning a few chart songs and a couple of old songs for the end of term assembly.
Harry... Well. He's certainly reached teenager-hood (as I call it). He woke everyone up at 5am this morning banging around. He was so excited for his school trip to a forest that he got up extra early (Despite still having to be at school the same time as usual). None of us were very impressed with him. Thankfully the younger two managed to go back to sleep. He's doing great at school, loves P.E and history. He has a lot of friends and is becoming more and more sociable, which is a good thing! This whole teen thing though, it's all new to me. Teenage attitude is no fun, haha. Overall though, I am very proud of Harry.
The most important thing to me is that the kids are all happy and doing well at school. And they all are.
We've cut down on the amount of time spent on the XBOX and tablet (for all three children) and been spending a lot more time outside! It's been really nice. Electronics and technology can really take over sometimes and it's nice to limit the time on those. The kids haven't even really complained about it. They love being outside. Even if it's just in the garden. I am hoping to go to the park at least one evening after school. Make the most of the weather while it's warm and sunny I say! :)
