Moving again

Well we have made it through the first week of school. There were plenty of tears flowing this last week. Kevin is in a year 2/3 class with Mrs Crane. At first Kevin had troubled making friends but now he seems to have made a couple of really nice friends. He has asked me if he can play junior rugby league and I am considering the idea but it is so expensive. We have also talked about scouts and Tai kwon do (sp?) We need to decide by the end of this week.

Here are my 3 lads on the first day of their new school (Kevin, Ray in front, & Gary)

Gray started Prep and had a few really big teary days by Friday he was off being the helper and was happy. He also has made some friends a couple of whom go to day care with him so that will also help.

Ray my baby (3.5y) is also adjusting to being at day care by himself having to make his own friends and not playing with his brothers. Although he woke up from his nap crying for his brothers it seems to be going really well now. He still cries a little when I drop him off but that is to be expected for a little while.

Whilst it was a tough week, I know that it is all part of growing up, for them and for me as a mum. Speaking of tough weeks we have found another house to move into so this weekend we are moving. I am so sick of moving it is ridiculous. But it is an improvement from where we are now it is a 4 bed 1 bath with a fully fenced yard. I can’t wait to get settled finally after almost 3 months of worried and sleeplessness in ensuring our family is safe and happy.

On the stitching side of things I have stitched my February ornament for the xsers group I chose to do holly berries mini biscornu. I will assemble it on the weekend after the move. I am moving on to the other Feb challenge is “Choose Your Own Ornie” and I am doing O Christmas tree by Helga Mandl it was a sal done through Wonderful XS World yahoo group in 2007.

That is all for now.

Nice Stitching Michelle., tai-kwon-do or Scouts....

No experience on the Rugby side - so cannot comment.
Tai-Kwon-do - or any martial arts will require and teach discipline and co-ordination.
Scouts - well I will always vote for scouts - I was a Cub leader for over 5 years. It is a great all-round experience if you find the right group, but prepare for a lot of family participation if they are doing it right...
good luck on your choice
