"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."
Another school year draws to an end. Leila's finished her first year and Ella her fifth year. I can't believe next year Ella goes into grade 5, leaving only two more years of primary school!
A successful year in terms of academic achievement, social development and friendship groups. Both girls go from strength to strength in terms of knowing their own minds, having a strong sense of right and wrong, great empathy for all. Their reports reflected that they are focused, respectful and caring. We said that whilst it's wonderful to be bright, to do well academically, it's even more wonderful to read how engaged they are, that they worry about others and take care of their peers.
We're now excited about all the extra time we have together during our summer holidays.
