It seemed a bit more stressful than summer vacation... Having to get up on time, make lunches and a regular schedule to follow... School in Norway starts early. August 17th my big boy went back to school, starting in what is known as 4th grade in Norway, but is comprable to 3rd in the US.
Here he is intent on getting ready to go off.
He barely had time to smile for me to take his first day of school photo.
There he goes rushing off to meet his friends. He'll have the same teacher this year as last year. We are so pleased about that as she has been wonderful at motivating him. Before leaving he asked me if I thought this year would be really hard at school. I'm not really sure, but I think he is up for the challenge if it is.
I am used to Sebastian being gone a large part of the day at school, but Lilly and I have spent nearly every week day together the entire day since her birth. So I have been feeling rather odd about her now going off to nursery school for a whole 4 hours a day 4 days a week! I feel an incredible sense of freedom to finally have so many hours uninterrupted time. I aslo feel disbelief that she should be so big! Her nursery school is just a 5 minute walk from home, that is if I am walking alone. Lilly and I take about 20 minutes to do the little walk though, hand in hand, sometimes skipping, nearly always chattering.
She really seems ready to go too. I might not be though. The great thing is she is a born story teller and tells me each and everything that hapens while she was away.
While they are gone I hope to have some time to do something with these bright and cheery fabrics! I have decided to definitely have my shop closed until mid-September, but I will likely miss you all to much to stop blogging until then. Wishing you a fantastic week.
