on with the summer duvets

As we have had lovely weather the last few days I have taken off the winter duvets and have put on the lighter summer ones...

...I have probably jinxed the weather now to go back to freezing :)

Evie is now wearing pajamas with t-shirt tops but not shorts...

...she refuses to wear them so I wont waste my money on buying any this year :)

signs of spring

Yesterday I was helping in Evies class again :)

As it was one of the houses fundraisers that day (they came in fancy dress and had a movie to watch in the afternoon), me and the substitute teacher went out with the kids that were having the fundraiser to find signs of spring for an art project that the rest of the class would be doing that afternoon.

J and L both wanted to bold my hands which was nice :)

J picked daisys that were photographed with her name next to them, and I helped L to pick some fresh sprouts growing on a tree :)

I also helped the teaching assistants to get the photos off of the camera and started filled in the list of parent helpers for swimming lessons (I havent volunteered for it :)).

And I helped S with her Maths it was working with groups of 2s 5s and 10s :)

I asked Evie later that afternoon when I picked her up what she picked as her sign of spring and she said daffodils :)

annoying the teacher

Yesterday when I picked Evie up from school I told her teacher that we had the appointment and she is being referred to see a pediatrician.

I told her that we went to the appointment with loads of evidence to disprove what she wrote, and I said you probably expected us to do that anyway, and she said that she didnt, and made out that by doing that we were standing in the way of her getting the help that she may need!

I said that if she needs help then I want her to have it, and told her how well Evie did on the last Wednesday I was in, and she then said that today (yesterday) she was having trouble counting in tens.  We went through them when we got home and she counted them fine.

I then said that I understood why she put what she put in the letter as something may be a "crucial key bit of information" but some of the stuff we didnt agree with and wanted to show the doctor what she can do.

We then said that she probably wont get her appointment until the summer break anyway but will have to see what they say.

real tears

Today it is back to school for Evie...

...we were lying in bed waiting to get up and I saw that Evie was crying real tears, so I asked her why she was crying and she said that it was because she will miss me.

I told her that I will miss her too, but I will be there (with a chocolate pancake) to pick her up after school.

We looked at what todays lunch is too and its pepperoni pizza with ice cream for dessert.

All her bags are ready to take with us today and I have to hand her swimming form in and money too.

its not dark yet

On Friday night I told Evie that it was bedtime...

...and she looked out of the window and said " but its not dark yet" :)

She normally goes to bed at 8pm.

Im pleased that she is associating going to bed with how dark it is, and I pointed out to her that in June it doesnt get dark until almost 10pm and there is now way she is staying up that late!

She is coming out with answers to everything now which is quite funny :)
