#Afterschoolchefs

This is Big Brother’s second full week of Reception. Last week he did full days and had hot lunches. He has settled in really well, although I hear the odd grumble from him about having to go all day and not just afternoons.

We’re all still getting used to our new routine. Little Sis and I are spending lots of time together but are still going to the library every Monday for story time. Today we listened to stories about rabbits and had fun making a bunny mask!

Despite Big Brother having school dinners he’s still hungry at teatime. I’m pretty good with meal planning and usually cook from scratch but I have to admit that I keep a few easy meals in the freezer when I’m pushed for time. Today we wanted to Skype Auntie Caca so I was happy to rely on the freezer for the children’s dinner.

I fed them Birds Eye garden peas, crispy fish bites (think small bite sized fish fingers) and potato waffles. This is one meal I know they love and Big Brother always asks for seconds! A lovely easy meal and clean plates meant more time for playing, we have to squeeze as much as we can before bedtime!

Another Lego face

Today was Big Brother’s turn to make some Lego. Today’s set was Star Wars Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor. I tried to get three sets so Daddy could have one but you could only buy 2 sets from Smiths so he just had to share with Big Brother.

Self portrait

We were invited to a party and the children decided they wanted to add their own drawings to our card. Big Brother did a couple of drawings and we included this one – showing him and his sister. I love the fact they’re both smiling. He also wrote his name on the bottom.

IMG_6652Little Sis surprised me with her drawing of her brother. I think this is the first of her drawings which is based on an actual person. She added eyes, a nose, mouth, hair and ears. I think it’s a pretty good likeness.

IMG_6653I hope the party girl appreciated her drawings.
