#LoudnProud | Changes & Challenges

Thursday, 16 April 2015

Time is whizzing by at an alarming rate. I can't really get my head around it being mid April already - we are fast approaching the end of the school year and before we know it, it will be the Summer holidays and time to reflect on all of the new things we have learned & experienced.

It's been a year of big changes and new challenges, and the kids have really done us proud in so many ways. When the Mister and I went to Australia last month, the children were immaculately behaved and very grown up, helping to make sure that everything ran as smoothly as possible while we were gone.

L & E have both settled in well at their new primary and secondary schools. E has taken to school life like a duck to water and has now moved up to level 12 in her reading, and is doing beautifully. She's moved up to stage 3 at swimming now too and has also moved up a group at Gymnastics. L has - touch wood - been much more settled recently and seems to be a lot happier at school now. I knew that the first year at senior school would be a difficult transition period but he has tried so hard, even taking part in school activities - he competed in the tutor group swimming gala and came first in his race!

J & A have had a lot of things to manage this year, with J being in his first GCSE year and A studying for her AS levels. Both have exams coming up soon and it's all hands on deck as well as a huge amount of work and stress for the two of them, A is always knee deep in revision at the moment but has also managed to land herself a new job at a new local business which is wonderful. Tonight is A's 6th form parents evening so I am looking forward to hearing about her progress from her subject teachers.

H has been throwing himself into his sport, playing for the school football team as well as his usual U9s Sunday rugby, and he's made it to 93% in stage 7 at swimming so we are anticipating his move up to stage 8 very soon (optional, but he's keen to continue), and he's signed himself up to the cricket club at school this term too. He is also delighted to have been chosen to represent the school in the swimming gala again this year. I love his enthusiasm for being busy and active and I hope he keeps it up.
