We have been having such a lot of fun this week recreating scenes from some of our favourite children’s books for world book day. If you are following us on Social Media, then you have probably come across our pictures: some were super easy, others you needed to think out of the box slightly!
Well good afternoon! Things were very quiet around PlayBag HQ last week as me and Caitlin flew off to West Africa! Not that I want to bore you with every detail of our trip, (which was amazing!), but instead thought I’d give you my top ten highlights!
As I am writing this, I feel a little overwhelmed at the amount of things I need to be doing! If you have been following my blog, you probably know that me and my number one girl are heading out to Gambia next week! All very exciting! It does mean though that there has been a lot of preparatory work going on here at PlayBag HQ! As I am leaving the Hubby in charge of son and business, I have been busy writing instructions, giving him a crash course into my systems, and making sure that all the stock is in order and everything is prepared for things to run smoothly in my absence! I have lists coming out of my ears of things I need to pack for the journey and in the suitcases! I am hoping that Caitlin has managed to organise herself and there are no essentials that we have forgotten!
It seems to have come round super quick this year, but yes, it’s back to school and some sort of normality for parents. For some it is quite a momentous occasion, with young children starting primary school and older ones starting high school – both major stepping stones in a child’s life, but also a big leap for parents. With each transition comes a little bit of sadness that our helpless babe, we once held in our arms, is becoming more independent. Although also with this comes that bit of pride and reassurance that we are doing our job as parents well and (hopefully) sending into the big world a child that is loved and ready to learn and deal with life’s challenges.
