Bit tired - has been a full-on week and it's not over yet. Last week of school is always so crazy and tiring. I'm not a girl who loves the craziness - I just long for it to end. However, I'm trying to enjoy all the delights of this time of the year for my children. It is so special for them as they celebrate their achievements, their milestones, getting to the end of another year.
At the other end of my family, Abbie turned 4 this week and then today, had her end of year preschool concert and 'graduation'. So funny - she was completely overwhelmed by the whole experience and a bit stressed out. But it was strange for me to think that next year it will be my last time of going to a preschool concert. And the first time for a high school speech night.
So, I'll just get through this week and face all the Christmas shopping that is yet to be completed. Our poor No 4 child. Not calm at the best of times, this week has done nothing for his temperament and patience levels. He's like our canary - too much going on in our family and it comes out in his behaviour. So sensitive, poor kid - hopefully the school holidays will give him the hours of downtime that he needs to regroup.
And, No 2 child has her first clarinet exam tomorrow - I'm a nervous wreck (but am thankfully not accompanying her) and she's pretty anxious too. Looking forward to taking her out for lunch afterwards.
