Cassie Etc

Look at Cassie all grown up! She is about twice as big I would say. Twice as silly too. She fell in the pond today. She goes out for a while each evening and hates to come in again. She doesn't understand the cat flap yet, eats the big girls' food, and bullies Lily. She loves it when the printer prints something, and rushes onto the table to see. She is also fascinated by shower curtains, and likes to be swished around the floor on one!
Recent journal pages. I would like to make one of these Queen Anne type dolls-especially since seeing such lovely ones in 'Prims' magazine. Maybe in the summer. I would like to make an Alice doll too. I am nearly half way through my reports. I come home each night and write two, which takes me about an hour and a half to two. I have an idea for a whole new way of reporting to parents next year that is more ongoing and less soul destroying. It will involve photos, quotes, sweet pictures and other lovely memorabilia of their child's first school experiences. I really hope my managers like the idea!
I like the combination of the colours in these pages.
"Where The Wild Things Are" continues at school. Here are today's monsters and the role play area we made this week for Max's bedroom.

Tomorrow we make the sea.

I love what you are doing- always- especially with the children's parental units- I would have appreciated that approach with my son's teachers when he was just a new bee.The wild things are SO scaring me! Love your journal pages- very happy and just plain swell! Cassie is quite the kitty- we knew she would be- and SO pretty!
I hope that your little parcel comes soonish- it should be there by now.

Cassie is so very pretty and quite grown into her ears now.
I like your idea of reporting - good for the parents to see what their offspring have been up to and far more revealing than any words could be.

Another lovely varied post! I love your idea for the school reports - so much better than the ones we got for Stuart!

Your role play area looks brilliant! Bet there's been lots of imaginative learning going on in there this week. Have a great weekend. I'm 10 reportd down and 14 still to go..... very slow progress, but better than none at all.Ros

Cassie is just adorable! One of our cats has a fascination with the printer too.
