Term 3, 11 weeks, it flew past in such a blur. I am finding it hard to remember what actually happened. The academic year for the kids and I is over. School is out till early September.



Charlotte grew in confidence, we had some struggles this year, but she really came into her own this past term. Her teacher worked really hard to bring her confidence back up after it took a hit in the first term. Charlotte starred in a solo dance for her class assembly. She has loved her extracurricular activities this term, ballet, soft toy club, knitting and first aid club. Charlotte farewells 3 special friends this July, she is being really good about it, but it is a lot.



Hayley has really enjoyed being in Year 1, so much so she doesn't want to move into Year 2 with me next year 😊 I think it might have something to do with her best friend moving to a new country, the same school and country as her much loved teacher is moving to. Hayley had 3 close friends 2 years ago, and now there is just her. Lucky for us, our shy introvert is very popular at school and has lots of new friends. Hayley enjoyed her ballet performance although her teacher explained she enjoys it more when she is in the front row.



Emma is also in denial about moving up a year group. She has farewelled 2 of her good friends this July, a little boyfriend and a sister to Charlotte and Hayley's friends. Although she is very excited about her teachers next year. Emma enjoyed ballet and rollerskating, and seemed to enjoy being on the stage.



I have loved my teaching role at the kid’s school, I'd love to share a lot of photos but this is not the place unfortunately. We have had a lot of fun, it has also been very challenging. I have never cried so much in my life, my tear ducts had a mind of their own, and my colleagues no longer believe me that I don't normally cry. I have loved having access to sport again, coaching athletics and netball, and playing netball myself. It has been fabulous! Looking forward to the next academic year and the challenges it will bring.



We finished off the academic year with a safari in the Mara with friends, I'll leave that for another blog.



We are now in France for the next 6 weeks on holiday while Murray works from the Geneva office and Amsterdam. Back to Kenya in time for the beginning of school.
