24/52…

A portrait of my children once a week, every week, in 2013 


Charlie: Has finally finished his SATS at school.  Although unaware he was being tested, the strain of strange class structure, going over papers, and stressed out teachers had taken it’s toll.  He is tired and emotional.  So we spend our days having as much fun as possible, hanging out with friends and playing Lego – and so the life of a 7 year old should be!

Rufus: Received Star of the Week in assembly this Friday.  For great listening and always trying his best.  I couldn’t ask for more.


To mark the end of SATS and great listening we bought them a small Lego kit each.  They were over the moon as you can imagine.  Ru kept telling me ‘this is the best day ever!’
Playing along with Jodi and the 52 portraits.

  • Cheers for another milestone in his life. Little ones in here adore Lego so much too. Got my eye on your next posts.

  • Mine love Lego too. So glad the SATS are finished. My 7 year old has had to do them too. He won an award at Beavers this week, so I am thinking I may get him a little gift as well, as we are so burstingly proud of him. Hope you have a lovely week Lou.

  • Gorgeous pictures … we have had the tests too … so much for little people to deal with … glad they’re over too … Bee xx

  • Lovely pics. Yes such a shame there’s so much pressure in school these days. Ours love Lego too xo

  • What lovely boys you must be so proud – I am just introducing my two small grandsons into the wonderful world of lego we are starting with Duplo. Have a fun Sunday

  • hooray for rewards! you must be so proud of your boys.
    love the light in the photo of Rufus especially this week. xx

  • Oh Lou, these are just so sweet. Sorry testing was so exhausting for Charlie. Testing sends my little brood over the edge as well. It just is too much and I wonder if there is a better way they can “test standards” and see how effective teachers/schools are.

    xxoo
