As I start writing this post, I want it to have a hook, a twist, that makes it different from all the other 'my child started school' blog posts that will be published this week. But I blog to record all the memories that our family is making, and so this post is to capture an important day in the life of our little family, the day that Harry started school.
Early mornings aren't a problem in our household, so we had plenty of time to get ready. I bought Harry a little Playmobil starting school figure which I left in his room last night for him to find when he woke up. Then I also made him a Schultüte, using instructions from Red Ted Art, as a starting school present. I filled it with pretty bits of stationery that are just for him, and some sweets.
