It was so nice just a few family members (even honorary ones Fiona & Caleb!!) sitting about, cousins and sisters playing together. No party stress or expectations. I really enjoyed it.
I feel a little emotional about my little girl entering this next stage of her life. The last of my babies are off into the big world to be under complete influence of schooling joys and challenges.
She is SO ready. She WANTS this.
I am just super proud to have got through the last couple of years to witness her starting school. What a privilege. Two years ago a year ago I was still wondering if I needed to start writing future letters to leave to my girls. It used to break my heart............the potential planning. It still may be needed, I know that. But this year has been so wonderful not thinking too far ahead.
So we had company, chatting, laughter, junk food, lots more chatter and simple fun. I really enjoyed it. Here are a few snaps from the day.
A "Moshi Monster Treehouse" My Phoebe loves the online moster creatures!!
Afternoon tea turned into fish n chips on the lounge floor and more drinkies and chats until bed. It was so nice to share the day with everyone.
Phoebe was one very happy girl.
Although the animals were left wondering where there share of the festivities were.
Love you enormously Phoebe. Your preschool family, own and extended family all love you. I believe your soon to be school family will feel much the same way.
Mum & Dad, sisters, dog and puss.
