Is today the first day of the school term for you? It is up here at Woop Woop. Our kids follow the QLD school terms as they do their schooling through Mt Isa School of the Air. I will tell you something for nothing: I am so ready for these boys to go back to school. Oh the fighting – they are getting so bored and it seems the only thing to do when you are bored is to wrestle or annoy each other. Is that how it has been at your house?
And guess what…. Clancy starts e-Kindy this year. How bloody exciting!!!! He won’t be at school full time but he will be out of my hair for a little while.
We have a lovely new Governess too. Miss Bobbie arrived on Monday. The great thing is that she also has a year under her belt of Governess experience. Last year she had 3 children and has even taught year 6 and e-Kindy so I think she is going to totally rock that school room. Sorry, I don’t have a photo of her to share with you, didn’t want to scare her off on day one by shoving my camera in her face like some sort of crazed paparazzi.
How was your Australia Day? Do anything fun? Hope you had a great one. Ours was pretty quiet, we did manage to enjoy some time poolside yesterday afternoon and boy was it hot. The weather has been disgusting. Even the pool was on the warm side. I have no idea how Mr Chardy & Co work out in that heat, FOUL!
I am sharing a blog post that I wrote last year – all about our school room here at Chardy HQ. Things will be a bit busier over there this year with 3 kids. It is also Tom’s last year of school here before he heads off to Boarding School in year 7.
You can read all about our school room HERE.
Too all of you sending your kids off to school for the very first time today be it prep or boarding school – good luck and stay strong. To everyone else who has had enough of school holidays – WOOOOO HOOOOOOO – enjoy!!!
Happy days my friends.
Do your kids do School of the Air or Distance Ed?
Do you have a new Govie starting too?
Or are you teaching the kids yourself…. sending patience if you are!
