Thursday was a special day in the Californian Mum household. It was the last day of school for both children. I took photos of Moozles and Dubz and then went to compare them with the photos from the first day of school. Moozles looks so grown-up now. She even stands in a cool way. As for Dubz, I then realised I had never taken a photo of him on his first day of pre-school. eek Life is so tough when you’re the youngest. I had a look through all my photos from September of last year trying to find a photo of Dubz and then I remembered that he went through a phase where he didn’t like having his photo taken. That has definitely changed as he now often asks me to take his photo.
Dubz has had a major year of growth. He started pre-school last September, and was very timid and used a lot of sign language. After having speech therapy and grommets, and Dubz can now hear properly and speak clearly. And although he is a bit nervous about starting big school in September, I know he will be fine. As for Moozles, she has struggled with hearing problems as well this year. But after getting grommets and having her adenoids removed again, her hearing has greatly improved. She has started enjoying school again and has gotten an amazing report. I know she will do wonderfully in Year Four in September.
But for now, we can take a break thinking about school, and just enjoy the six/seven weeks of summer holidays. Happy summer everyone!
