On the last day of Term 1 Possum got to wear 'crazy socks' as a reward for having earned 10 merit awards. I did not have any socks so decided that stripes on stockings under her sports shorts were crazy and would count. She looked great and was so proud of herself. In addition to her Bronze Award for merits she also got a reading award so she had a great day at school. Kindergarten also hosted the final assembly for the term and Possum had memorised her readings and spoke clearly and well into the microphone; yay!
The holidays included a trip to Nan and Pop's for the children, craft and a quick trip to the Northern Rivers area of NSW. ANZAC Day also featured and Possum wore her school uniform and marched with the school which was a nice experience for her. It was not a nice experience for the rest of us as Blue hit his head when he fell off a fence so the Mr and I took him up to the hospital for some glue and we missed the big event.
Little Athletics also finished up last term. We still have to have the presentation night but I am looking forward to having a few months off with quiet winter nights on a Friday in front of our fire. I am trying to be less busy but I have no idea how long that will last ;)
This term I popped my head in and helped the Kindergarten class do some cooking for Mother's Day. Possum was so excited to see me in her class as a 'teacher'. I will have to do that more often; it was fun to help the younger Kindy children as I work with Year 1 and 2 and also help Year 3 and 4 with reading groups a couple of times a week while I am there but had not helped in my daughter's class at all as I was worried that she would find it hard to switch between mum the 'teacher' and mum the parent. It wasn't an issue which was great.
