Our Weekly Roundup #22

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.

Our Weekly Roundup #21

  • The highlight of this week for Izzy was going to her first ever football match. She’s a Manchester City fan (influenced by Daddy of course) and went to see the City Women’s match on Sunday. She has decided that her favourite player is Izzy Christiansen, if only because they share the same name, so she got number 11 on the back of her shirt in tribute.

It’s been another couple of busy weeks. We’ve packed quite a lot in with a trip to Manchester, visits to the aquarium and farm, swimming and a show.

Our Weekly Roundup #19

The first week of the Summer holidays got off to a busy – and wet – start.

  • Izzy had her first ever dance concert. She has done a couple of medal tests before but this was the first time she has done a group dance, in front of a packed audience. She sang out loud and looked like she was having a great time. After a dress rehearsal and 2 shows though she is now shattered and we can put away the leotards and ballet shoes for a while as she has no more dance classes over the summer.IMG_20160722_195943

Our Weekly Roundup #18

  • It’s been a busy school week for Izzy. Her team won sports day, but unfortunately we weren’t able to watch as it was moved inside the school hall due to the weather. She also had her last disco as a reception pupil and got her first ever school report.IMG_20160715_200847
