Back to school has been the focus of the last week. Back to early mornings, back to homework, back to tired children in the evenings. There has been lots of concentration and the two youngest started new things; L had his first guitar lesson which has left him completely inspired and can be found strumming the guitar in every spare moment. Always with his tongue sticking out which makes me laugh as he always does that when he is concentrating.
A has been patiently waiting for her piano lessons to start. She loved listening to both of her older brothers play and would sit tinkling away on her own, more recently singing the words to Let it go as she tinkled. When she started school, we told her that she needed a term to settle in to school but the piano lesson topic has come up a great deal. This week, she was so excited and came home with her piano book and a big smile and couldn’t wait to tell me all about what she had learnt.
There hasn’t bee anything new on the agenda for my lovely ten, soon to be eleven year old but he has been reunited with his precious Minecraft after a month of enforced separation. When Minecraft is on, this face is not for turning.
