Rosie broke up for Easter today. (Charlie had an inset day, so he broke up yesterday and was pretty smug to have the day off when Rosie had to go into school. He's going to be a bit less smug when he realises that she's got an inset day at the END of the hols, so he's going back to school a day before her!)
She's had a busy time at school lately - lots of dressing up days and fun things to do.
We had her parents' evening this week too - she's doing brilliantly across the board and we're so proud of her. Her teacher says she's well ahead of where she should be in maths, reading, writing... everything really! She also said she's astonishingly mature and perceptive for a five-year-old. Apparently she behaves really well and is a big help in the classroom. Pretty much a perfect report really. Couldn't ask for more from our little Rosie-girl.
They had a little Easter bonnet parade at the end of the day today, so they all marched around the playground in their hats. I love how pleased she is when she spots me at school events - I helped out at the Mother's Day shop at school last month, and she was tickled pink to have HER mum there during the school day. :-)
More to the point, I was pretty chuffed that I was able to recycle the same Easter bonnet she had for both years at Playschool! I'd kept it stashed carefully at the back of her wardrobe so I didn't have to faff around making a new one. It only just fitted, but she was quite happy to have it balanced a bit precariously on top of her plaits!
So that's what Rosie's been up to - we've got a few fun things planned for the Easter hols, so watch this space...
