Our first half-term week

I know I sound like a broken record, but I am still getting used to the idea that my little girl is not so little anymore, but in fact is now attending “big school”. She is doing so well and I am so incredibly proud of her, but ever since she did start primary school, I was secretly looking forward to half-term. Having her around for the whole week would be wonderful. 

Luckily my husband and I both managed to get this week off work and we had made quite a few plans for half-term. So far, we’ve had a brilliant time! We’ve been out and about, have met up with some of her old nursery friends (most of them are not attending the same primary school as she is), met the Gruffalo and had a brilliant time at Drusillas Park. For the rest of the week we still plan to do some pumpkin carving (wish us luck!) and visit a farm – fingers crossed the weather stays as lovely as it has been the last few days. 

We also had the 28 week midwife appointment to look forward to. Hearing baby’s heartbeat and the midwife telling us that everything looks fine so far is so reassuring! We cannot wait to welcome this tiny addition to our family in only a few short months.

Here are a few pictures of our first half-term week so far.
