Back to school part 1

This week the summer holidays are coming to an end.

It has made me mostly feel emotional, somehow sad that my big girl will be going to school again and that she won’t be free to be home for five days in a row, every week for almost a whole year.
But after today things have changed a little bit.
My three year old is starting pre –school this school year and that’s something that I’m really excited about. I’m so proud that my little girl will be going to ( pre-)school for the first time.

She had been offered a place in two different play schools and she was supposed to start next week on Monday in one of them but today I decided to put her on the other play school which started their school year yesterday.

I started a course in child care last year and from September I will have to do work experience and it suited better if I put her on the school I've chosen now.

And since big sister is starting school this Thursday and the play school is in the same building and starts at the same time, I thought it would be nice for her to start this Thursday as well instead of tomorrow already .

This will also give me some time to get some last things sorted.
So today I went and got my three year old a lunch bag since she will have to bring her own lunch in this play school.(in the other play school they were providing a snack) She saw the Hello Kitty lunch bag in the shop and wanted it straight away. When I handed it over to her on her request she put it straight away in the shopping trolley. So cute! Later she held it in her hand but she gave it back so we could pay for it at the counter. Her toy phone apparently ended up in it as we noticed when the cashier wanted to scan it. My little girl is really growing up.

For my big girl Ix, I already had been shopping: new uniforms, stockings, shoes, vests and books. Tomorrow I have to get a few last things for both girls and then they will be ready for school on Thursday.
But since they are now starting on the same day, I no longer feel sad about Ix starting school again. Because the same day will be a big milestone for Yov and that makes me so excited, I can’t be sad at the same time.

I also went and got some info about another crèche where we potentially will put Nevaeh in the future.
It’s also not too far from where we live and apart from the price it seems to suit us well.

So I really feel blessed today. I also finally found a place to do work experience for the child care course. God is good, merciful and faithful. Glory to His name!

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Nevaehs Summer Bucket list

Unfortunately, it seems that this year the Autumn weather has started earlier than last year. And so I finally wanted to write a blog post to share Nevaehs Summer Bucket list with you.
This Summer, we mostly stayed in the Netherlands. We only went to Germany to visit Moviepark Germany for two days. At the beginning of the break, the girls entertained themselves by playing games and watching youtube video’s on their tablets and laptop. This bothered me a bit, so one evening I called them all together to sit down and told them to make a bucketlist for the Summer. The first one to finish was allowed to have the last bit of ice cream. Nevaeh can already write a little bit but I told her that she could draw instead. So she made a bucketlist with 10 items on it. The actual bucket list got lost somewhere but we memorized what was on it and I’m glad to say that she has been able to do all the items on it.
So here is Nevaehs Summer Bucket List.
