Three cheers



It was five year-old Argy's first day at primary school today. He was very excited and it all went well. His younger brother - four year-old Bargy - starts kindergarten this Wednesday.

Some days the boys will be at school and kindergarten ... at the same time.

The house will be quiet won't it?



Yipppppeeeee!



Hip-hip-hooray!



[Insert sound of clinking glasses, party tooters and marching band here]

Wooohooooooo!

  5. Look forward to it! I am missing my Maya so much of the time while she is at school. I just can't get used to not turning on Playschool for her in the afternoon. I hope Bargy had a great day too. What a milestone!

  6. Woohoo! Freetime. Years ago when our younger ones went to preschool I told a friend how I used those cpl of hours to do 'me' things - reading, napping, painting, etc. She was stunned. Apparently she wasted that precious time doing housework. Weirdo.

  9. Enjoy that bliss, I am a year away from that but wonder if I will ever get it, when they are in kinder / creche I work, thus the time for me is limited. But I do sneak in a pedicure every now and then at lunch.

  22. Once I got caught by the postie twirling about like a bad Stevie Nicks tribute act just because there was no one else in the house and I could. Only happens once a week so far for me but more to come - the stuff you can get done.

    How's the serenity Daryl?
