A year of term-time fun #OurPreschoolYear

A year of term-time fun #OurPreschoolYear

The countdown has begun. The schools are back, meaning it’s now just a year until Tilly starts in reception and my time with her is dramatically reduced. This is our last opportunity for term-time fun and I have every intention of making the most of the next 12 months. There are preparations to make for school too, though, such as securing a much coveted place and getting reading and writing skills up to standard. Oh and then I need to work out what on earth I’m going to do once Tilly is at school. One way or another, it’s going to be a busy year.
