Back to school 2018

After long summer holidays in India and World family meet in Ireland the time flew so fast. Finally it is the time for the new academic year. As usual, children were building hopes to have some fun on the back to school day. This year I didn't get chance to make any shultes.

There was lots of school items along with some chocolates, candies, jellies and stuffs. Thersu was more excited and Geo was not sure what is happening today. After being to Holy Mass, our celebration started with fun.

Below is the post of back to school  from previous years for any more ideas. There are lots of ideas in shower of roses blog for new school year.

Happy Feast of Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Making Candy floss

Mich was so excited today after his constant hard work for the last few days to fix the motor to make candy floss. I predicted it was going to be a flop, sorry being a nasty mother. Me got excited once Mich's dream to make candy floss came true. 

He made the motor connected to electricity and fixed to a metal cap which started rotating it. Then sugar solution in water which was made before was allowed to run through the metal cap. Water solution was gently poured through metal cap once the motor is started going, slowly you could see candy floss started building up in the box in which everything is set up. It was great fun and so delighted to see his little engineering skills started flourishing.

Donald's Birthday

We were invited to join for Don's birthday in Trafford centre. Don looks so happy when we met him and went to have bouffet in one of the Thai restaurant and kiddos enjoyed meal. So tired in the end and had a lovely birthday with Don on his 9th celebration.

Sports day

St Mary's choir school had their sports day last Tuesday. The day was packed with lots of  fun events like obstacle race, two legged race, spoon and potato, long distance run and so on. Many parents and relatives joined for the day. Sun was shining gently and so we all had a brilliant day. Children bagged some medals and certificates for two legged race, wheel barrow race and obstacle race. . Geo was bit reluctant to join and enjoyed on his push bike.
