Start of term classes and groups are beginning in earnest and it's always such a thrill for me as a mom. I may not have "First Day" photos for school that I hear so much about (and never had even heard of), but I do have first day photos for things like Scouts, Brownies and other ventures begun and renewed. It makes me sentimental.
This past weekend we doubled up our Saturday with a Scouts BBQ at Lions Park and my nephew's birthday party at Coronation Park. The activities were back to back.
After a mentos pop rocket experiment and lots of free park play, the party ended with loot bag kites to fly.
Cai was so thrilled to fly a kite! All the kids enjoyed racing around trying to get their kites to fly.
For some reason Sean and I felt particularly exhausted by the end of the day.
So here we are on Monday: Aidan's first Scouts meeting. He had a great time and it looks like the kids have an awesome line up of activities planned for the year. Tomorrow his cello will start back up and the next day is the start of Brownies! Soon we'll add on Music Together, weekly skating and Games Day. I feel back in business as our year begins to pick up speed.
Should I be holding onto something?
