Dance Fuzion

Courtney is naturally very supple, how I wish I could bend like she does! We have been keen to get her into a gym class for a little while now but as the pre school classes tended to be on when I was at work or she was at Nursery it never worked out. We heard of Dance Fuzion for school age children, it's convenient as it is held at the church hall very near to us and it wasn't only gym, they also did dancing and cheerleading! So we took her on it's first session in the new school year. To say Courtney enjoyed it would be an understatement! She loved it!

Courtney's first day at school.

So this was it, her very first day! We were all very excited for her. She looks so grown up in her uniform, yet is still such a little dot!


and with her brother.

Once photos were done it was time to get coats on and head for school! Ok, time for one last photo before setting off! (the coat didn't last long, it was off again by the end of our drive!)

Warning, approaching is a heart melt. So so sweet!

We dropped Charlie off first and then it was Courtney's turn, it was chaos in the reception classroom!! Areas were set up with name badges etc which was good, we took her through to hang up her coat and were pleased to see she is sharing a cloakroom with Charlie. I don't know if you remember but Charlie's name symbol was a koala, Courtney's had me laughing.........a dancing hippo!!

Edited, a few days after the school's blog had an entry about the children's first few days in school. Courtney's photo appeared on it, she looks so happy and settled. :D

Year 2 (and Courtney's gifts)

Reception children start school tomorrow but today the rest of the school went back. Charlie's first day in Year 2! Bless him, this is his last infant year, I can't believe it!

After school we held a little party for Courtney, just the 4 of us. We had cake and gave her some gifts for starting school. She is now getting very excited and can't wait to go with her brother tomorrow!
