Last week was fairly uneventful really. Still settling back into school and adapting to Year 1. So we’ve not been making too many other plans as the twigs are pretty tired. Definitely a very quiet week!
After school I’ve been trying to keep up with reading with the twigs most days. They’re both doing really well. It’s mad to think this time last year they couldn’t read a thing and now they’re reading so fluently!
They also now have spellings to learn each week! Such a jump up from Reception. So far they’ve found them pretty simple luckily. So we’ve just done a little bit of fun practice but not had to do too much in the way of learning them yet.
A park trip and a few behaviour struggles
At the weekend we had a playdate at the park with their twin buddies, which was lovely. I am finding the twiglets’ behaviour quite difficult to manage sometimes when we’re out. It often ends up being quite stressful at the moment. I think it’s where they’re behaving so well at school and releasing all the demons when they’re with me haha!
It’s putting me off taking them both out on my own though. Which is a bit rubbish because that’s how I used to feel when they were babies! I’d panic about them both screaming at the same time in public and me not being able to handle it. I didn’t expect that I’d be feeling that anxiety again now that they’re 5 years old! But hopefully they’ll settle down soon!
A bit of crafting
So this week’s Living Arrows photos are of the twigs having fun making some windmills for the garden 🙂

Thanks for reading and hope you have a great week, whether it’s a quiet one or a busy one!
Til next time,
