Saturday 30 December 2017


I don't often realise how much has happened in a year until I stop to look back.  I don't notice the children growing when I see them every day, but when I look at photos from this time last year, it seems like much longer than 12 months.  

Dylan has shut up by inches, he is more confident, he is more able, he has learned to ride a bike, to play card games, to assert his choices.

Archie has started school, made new friends and started learning to read and write.  He got his first pair of glasses and he has taken it all in his stride.

Finn's speech has come on so much, he can communicate with us and we are getting to know him more because of it.  He has started nursery a couple of afternoons a week and he is losing his baby features.

Cora has learned to crawl, walk and run.  She has started saying words. she has grown a full head of hair and she has established her place in the family (as the boss of the family).

This year we have travelled, we went skiing in France, visited Hamburg, spent a few days at Centre Parcs in Holland and we loved going back to France with Eurocamp.  We went to our first family festival and camped out and we went glamping at Drayton Manor and at Port Lympne Wildlife reserve.

This year we moved house, we hosted our first family Christmas on Boxing day and we applied for Dylan's junior school. This year I turned 30, this year we made the most of the beach, we visited the zoo, we splashed in puddles and related everything to Pokemon.  This year we made new friends and spent time with old ones.  We watched films and read books, we wrote stories and drew pictures and we grew together.

I have loved looking back over the year, seeing how far we have all come and I can't wait to see what 2018 has in store for us.
