As Facebook is taken over with photos of excited/terrified children in too-big jumpers, it can only mean one thing – its back to school time!

While we have enjoyed the Summer holidays and I’ve tried to make the most of having some extra time with Izzy, the return to school is a welcome one. Izzy has been missing her friends and has been desperate to get back to the playground.


I’ve been thankful to get back into a routine, one I didn’t realise I missed. The various baby and toddler groups have started back again and we now have to get up and out early for the school run which then sets us up for a more productive day.

Settling into a new class, with a new teacher and mostly new classmates has not been a problem. Izzy is outgoing, and really involves herself in anything to do with school, so she already knew most of the children who are in her new mixed-year class.

Of course the first week back hasn’t been without its challenges. We are already minus one PE shoe. Just the one.

Blog Roundup

We had the opportunity to review some new Sofia the First toys from Jakks Pacific. The girls loved making a vlog, something we would like to do more of! I may be biased but I think they are naturals in front of a camera…
