A photo a day, every day, for a year! This is my post for the year 2021 Week 15. This week saw the children returning to school. The coronavirus measures also relaxed a bit this week. Non-essential shops could reopen and the children were able to return to their afterschool activities. The end result was quite a hectic week!
Project 365 – 2021 Week 15
Little E brought home a planted seed from school. We found out it is a broad bean and this is how much it has grown. I’m quite amazed at how much it has grown as we are terrible with plants. Little E is definitely the gardener in our family.
We went to Mersea Island today for our weekly walk. We took the children to Cudmore Grove as there are playgrounds there. There is also a little bit of a beach so it gives Ethan the chance to see the sea and Little E can look for shells. You can see Brightlingsea across the water which Ethan thought was funny.
Little E returned to school today but Ethan had a non-pupil day. Darren took Ethan into town to buy him some new school shoes from Clarks. I had booked him an appointment to make it as easy as possible for them. Ethan’s feet have grown a whole size so they come back from town with new school shoes and trainers.
The tooth fairy had to pay us another visit tonight. Little E’s tooth fell out just before bedtime. The tooth fairy was worried about the lack of change she could get hold of but Darren was able to save the day.
Little E’s plant is continuing to grow at speed. We took this photo to send to her teacher.
Ethan was at the after-school club tonight so I took Little E into town after school for her turn to buy new shoes. We took the bus, this is the first time I have been on a bus since moving here. It was our little adventure. Little E didn’t need new school shoes but her feet have got bigger. I brought her some new trainers and some sandals for the summer.
I had to order Little E some new swimsuits this week. We realised this as we squeezed her into her suit for swimming on Monday. She has got so tall during the lock-downs! I ordered her some from the Disney Store. A new puzzle might have also accidentally been placed into the basket. I still need to finish the Tangled castle puzzle as I haven’t completed that one yet.
That was our 2021 Week 15 adventure. You can read about our week 14 here.
