From Kaelyn

My name is Kaelyn. I have a mummy and a daddy and a little brother. I am five  years old and I have a cat, but he died.

A little story Kaelyn wrote down into her little note book. There is lots of writing and drawing going on these days. She can ask over and over again how to spell this and  how to spell that. Then there is Daddy’s iPad, another writing tool that she loves using. She also writes little stories about princesses and other things.

Now she is really looking forward to starting in Kindergarden next Monday!

Alex is, well, Alex… A real monkey!

No stabilizers!

5 years, 6 months and 26 days…. and no stabilizers! Brought a big smile to her (and our) face. The little brother was well impressed too…. Definitely a milestone for Kaelyn!


New tricks!

Kaelyn is quite happy to show off her latest trick. If we can’t come with her to the trampoline, she doesn’t mind showing off her trick in the snug either…. So here it is:


Busy, busy, busy!

It has been a hectic couple of weekends for us all. Even with rain most days (it was so much rain that a new bridge had to be built at Daddy’s work!) we have been out and about!

Last weekend we went to Southend-on-Sea to visit some friends. We walked all the way out on the 1.33 mile long pier. Windy and a bit cold, luckily we took the train back!

We also managed to get to Colchester Zoo as well as going to Southend!

Mostly we played in the soft play area due to the rain. We did also have a picnic outside at the Zoo. This is our 5th visit to the Zoo, so we are starting to find our way around it. This time we met this little fellow who was very curious about who was visiting.

This weekend we have mostly done gardening… Boring gardening! But after weeks of rain, it was a bit of a jungle out there! After hours and hours of working, we could see the results though! We could even see some flowers!

Even with all the gardening, we did have time to do some jumping on the trampoline, and we also got to the park for a play!

Busy, busy, busy! No wonder the parents are exhausted by the end of the day…. Some va-va-voom would be very much welcomed!

A clever girl!

Who is the clever one? 43 out of 43 on the sight word test! Must have it from the Mother’s side… (I could hear all of you say it anyway, so I might as well beat you to it!). Kaelyn enjoys the reading and the writing that she is learning at school at the moment.

And Kaelyn have found this new skill to be very useful too! The ultimate use is of course the possibility to now write to Father Christmas! The other day when I got home from work I found this letter in the snug on the sofa. Not only had she written the letter, but Kaelyn was a really good girl that day as well; she had added her little brothers name to the letter as well! Father Christmas will be well impressed, I am sure. He will probably get a few more letters between now and December as well….

It is not only the Daddy that is well impressed with this new skills level displayed! For the second time she came home, very proudly, displaying the Headteacher’s Award on her shirt. Well done Kaelyn!

Easter is over!

Our two little delights are growing up fast. There are times when peace reigns and all is well. Kaelyn shares and looks after her little brother who listens and does exactly as the big sister commands…

Then there are times when the two parties needs the UN to come in and negotiate peace following major fall outs and disagreements. UN does not arrive on the scene, however, Mummy does and most times it all gets sorted out fairly efficiently….

Easter is behind us, still some chocolate left due to an over eager Easter Bunny wanting to impress the little ones. Yesterday the whole day was spent with Daddy and Colchester Zoo was the destination, followed by some running around in the Arena at work and then McDonald’s for dinner. Today we have been at home all day. No major fights, a couple of smaller bumps and bruises (as expected with a 2 1/2 year old in the house….) The trampoline has been actively used while the garden got a little bit attention from the grown ups.

Normality returns from tomorrow, with school, Under 5’s and what have you… Before we know it, summer will be here….

Happy Easter

Easter is just about as big as Christmas is in our little house! Pressies at one and Chocolates at the other. Both firm favorites with our little two.

This Easter Sunday we had our 4th Easter Egg Hunt, first one in Essex, and the first one where Alex is old enough to get into it for full.

Also the first one where the Chief Egg Hunter is old enough to share equally (ish) with the Second Egg Hunter and they did end up with the same amount of loot in the end.

Sugar rush followed quickly there after! Happy Easter!

Outing to Silbury Hill

The Daddy said: It will not rain, why don’t we do an outing to Silbury Hill?

The Mummy asked: Are you sure? I’ve just put the washing out!

The Daddy said (full of confidence): Not to worry, (Norwegian weather forecast) says there will be no rain in our area today!

Of course it rained on us! Nice outing anyway, and Kaelyn did some fantastic walking (and she took a great photo of Mummy, Daddy and Alex), Alex did not do that much walking, but enjoyed being in the backpack that Daddy carried.

We didn’t get too wet though! Washing did though….
