Tuesday 1 May 2012: BethaBlip 64...
This is my monthly track of my children as they grow to see how they change as time goes by. I take the same photo in the same place each 1st and 15th of each month along with a wee diary of what has happened and how life has progressed for each of them. Bethany on the 1st and Ewan on the 15th. It is quite remarkable and is accentuated by the 1 year ago thumbnail down in the bottom right.
Bethany's class have been learning a class project about kings, queens, all thing days of yore. I was passing through their school the other week and they've got the class room door kitted out with a portcullis and all sorts. I'm not entirely sure what the Lost Princess thing is all about but everyone in her class has been asked to draw a picture advertising for a Lost Princess and putting it up in their windows which she dutifully did.
Our neighbour's wee girl is about 6 months younger than Bethany but they are in the same class. This is turning out really good for her because she has some school friends close by but also for us because it means that we're getting to know our quiet neighbour better through this relationship. We've had a lot of playing at their/our house with nextdoor recently. Basically she might come over for an hour or so to play and gives her parents an unofficial wee break or viceversa.
Bethany asked to get her hair curly for tomorrow, so instead of the rather harsh hair treatment and messing about with curling tongs, MrsTFP put her hair into plaits whilst wet so it will be curley when undone tomorrow morning.
