We're looking forward to seeing the environment she will be a part of next year and to getting a glimpse into this first big milestone of her schooling days.

The Good, The Bad And The Exciting
Today started off on such a good note. Following my new rule of not venturing out of the house on a Monday (I’ve found following a busy weekend, my girls need to lay low), we’ve stayed home and simply pottered. Several loads of washing have gone through the machine and been hung out, biscuits have been baked, floors vacuumed and tea is already half prepared. The girls have spent time happily in the sand patch, made endless play dough creations and camped out in the play tent with their stuffed toys.
However, after a much needed snooze, Grace woke in an even crankier mood and her over the top crying awoke Sophie mid-nap. I was not a happy mama and angrily sent her outdoors until she had settled herself down. Sophie refused to go back to sleep though and has become increasingly over-tired as the day has progressed. Not fun. To add to the negatives at the moment, I have recently found out that the painful elbow I was putting up with was not a repetitive strain injury after all, but instead, together with a stiff and inflamed knee is part of a rheumatoid arthritis flare up, something I have not experienced in over twenty years. I am now on anti-inflammatory medication and spend short bouts each day with my knee elevated. Our heat pack has become my best friend.
As for the exciting, tomorrow Grace has orientation day at her kindy. Just a half an hour ‘meet the teacher and tour' of her new classroom, but after months of kindy talk, it is such an important event in this household.
How has your start to the week shaped up?
