It’s an exciting time in the Henwell house hold, as our oldest is starting Primary one. The big 5 year old who only yesterday in my eyes was learning to hold her bottle by herself, crawl, walk & talk. She’s mastered the latter to a Tee. So this September she starts her journey into education & meeting new friends. She’s quite nervous but I know she will shine.
I decided to splurge and go for a pretty Cath Kidston school bag for Eva-Lilly. The reason being, I hope this bag will see her through a good few years in school as it’s wipe clean. You can find similar here.
I actually got her uniform from M&S during their sale in June. I just need to pick up her jumper and bottoms for P.E days.
Another few & very useful items I picked up too from M&S where these getting ready for school activity packs.
For her birthday, Eva-Lilly’s auntie got her a matching number & colour game & she is loving it. Definitely worth looking into.

To try and ease any of her anxieties about starting school we’ve been reading a Biff, Chip & Kipper book. This will be the book series she will be doing in school too, so at least she’s now familiar with it. She’s a big reader anyway so that helps.
Thankfully we made the most of the summer & made lots of lovely memories for Eva-Lilly to remember and share with her friends at school.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of the ‘summer’ holidays with your littles before the school runs, pick ups & sorting childminders starts again.
