Wow, she's grown so much. I can't believe she's heading off to 'big school' in September.
Rosie had a lovely time at her party to celebrate her last day at Playschool and came home laden down with books and works of art.
At the end of the day, the teachers lined up and clapped the kids out one by one with music playing and bubbles blowing. It was a lovely end to a golden two years for Rosie, and she loved every minute!
Some of the kids were upset to be leaving, but although I know she'll miss her teachers, she absolutely can't wait to get to big school in September.
But first - we have the whole summer stretching ahead of us, with lots of fun things planned!
Sent from my iPhoneWell, it was another sunny day today, so we decided to go out.
We dithered a bit about where to go, and ended up heading off to the Roman remains in Caerleon.
(I don't pronounce Caerleon the proper Welsh way ('ky-err-lay-on'), I tend to anglicise it and say Cuh-Lee-un - but every time I mentioned the place name, Rosie thought I was saying 'Uncle Ian' and was looking everywhere for my brother!!)
We had a great time wandering round the Roman baths and the museum, and then had a quick walk around the ruins outside.
We finished up with a cool drink at a café and headed home.
It was a lovely, relaxed afternoon and didn't cost a penny - apart from the drinks - because the parking was free, as was entry to both the baths and the museum.
I have a feeling we might be heading back there before the summer holidays are over.
Oh - I just realised I didn't post any pics of Rosie's last day at Playschool. I feel a 'first day/last day comparison' pic coming on! Will save that for another post though...
It's Rosie's last 'proper' day at Playschool today - she's off tomorrow because the younger children are having their end of term party, and then she's back in for the last day on Wednesday, but that's for her leaving party.
Two years of Playschool have gone by in a shot. I can't quite believe it really.
I still feel like she's my baby, and then I see these photos and realise that she's actually quite the young lady nowadays...
Welcome to Charlie's News! Charlie was born on November 5, 2003, minus the left side of his heart - a complex congenital heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He had two open-heart surgeries in his first five months, and had his third stage Fontan completion in March 2010, aged six-and-a-half.
Charlie's heart is special - but not as special as he is!
