September went by in a whirr. The last thing I remember was getting T ready for the first day of school and now the first month is gone. Pfft, just like that.
She’s well settled now. To be fair, we didn’t have any problems with her settling in. It was different of course when she was in reception and even parts of year 1. My husband and I are really pleased that year 2 seems to be working out really well for her, in spite having a new teacher. All is definitely well.
Little T has also started with ballet and is loving it. She’s pleased with her pink leotards although she did wonder if she could have a different colour. When I queried it with her teacher, she said that their students are required to wear regulation leotards, not wanting to offend, we decided to just get them from the ballet school.
After the closure of T’s gymnastics club in Bodmin and then following her announcement of early retirement and then coming out of it, we were a bit worried that we wouldn’t find a new club within reasonable driving distance from where we live. I’m glad my husband persevered in looking for another one. Luckily for us, the North Devon Gymnastics Club decided to open up a pilot class in Bude where it’s nearer to us. Since they are still new in the place (their main club is in Bideford), they don’t really have much equipment yet, I’m hoping that will change soon. And since it’s nearby, close friends of T’s from her school have decided to join in with her.
Admittedly, T didn’t practice her cello over the summer break in spite her teacher giving her some exercises. I guess it’s because I wanted her to enjoy her summer break more. But I’m glad to say she’s back in the groove and is practicing as much as she can.
I’m glad to say she’s still doing well. To be fair though, she went to swim club over the summer-break, so she didn’t really get much of a break from swimming which is good, because she hasn’t lost her momentum. Her coach is really pleased with her progress, especially since little T had a bit of a trust issue with her.
Yes, we are all settled and definitely back in our school routine.
Our word of the week is routine.
