Open day at Popette's school

How are we halfway through the year already? I know, I know...I say this every year, but this year seems to be flying by. I can't believe Popette is in Term 3.

Yesterday I went to an open day at Popette's school. Popette was so happy to see Cherub and I show up to her classroom. She took us on a tour of her classroom, happily showing us drawings and other work she had made. Then read me some sight words that she's been learning in jolly phonics.

Afterwards we walked over to the school hall to see all the science projects on display. Popette made a windmill with help from Daddy. Hubby who is a "science buff" was pretty excited to help her out. Together they designed the windmill, then Popette did the painting and gluing, while Hubby did a couple of the tricky bits. In the end it looked great, and not like an adult had helped all that much.

After watching a performance from the school band and choir, we sat down in the playground for a picnic lunch. Then Popette took Cherub on a tour of the play equipment, which was a real hit!

I'm so proud of how well Popette is coming along at school. She loves her teacher and is very proud of her school. She has told us on a few occasions that when she grows up she wants to be a teacher. Sooo sweet.

We are trying to help her with her writing and cutting, being a lefty is quite a challenging thing for her, but she's trying hard which is all we could ask of her.


  1. I can't believe it's term 3 either - and three weeks in at that!

  2. Sounds like it was a super fun day! And yes, seriously…where's the year gone???

    1. It was a wonderful day Grace. Just seeing Popette happy at "her school" and watching her sing the school anthem was the highlight for me :) x

  3. OMG Julie - someone seriously stole months from this year whilst we are sleeping. Such happy smiles in those pictures - it looks like you guys had an awesome day. xx
