Friday Focus 07/12/18 – Little angels

Sophie has been busy practising for her Nativity play this week and is playing the part of the angel Gabriel. We went to see the first performance yesterday and were so proud of her. She had three lines to say and spoke them all loudly and clearly. She looked adorable in her costume and the collective “aah” whenever she stepped forward with a line made me smile.

 

Angel - this week's word of the week

 

After seeing Sophie playing an angel, I went to visit my other angel. I brought her the Christmas wreath that I made at a workshop last week (my first evening out on my own since Thomas’s arrival) as well as my usual flowers. Jessica played the part of an angel in her Reception nativity too. She would have been very proud of her little sister. Sophie even did a little bow at one point in exactly the same way as Jessica always used to do.

    Angel Gabriel, that’s a great part. We have a Snowflake and a little Grey Mouse in the Christmas play this year. I’m sure would have been very proud of Sophie xxx

    Now that is an adorable photo. Wonderful to see her dressed up and taking part on stage. I’m missing the primary school festivities just a little. They really do have fun – singing and performing. You have had a full on week. Even Thomas adding to his firsts. I saw your wreath on Instagram. You made it beautiful. Hope you have a lovely next week. #wotw

    Oh you’ve had such a lovely festive week! I’m so glad to hear Sophie did such a good job in her nativity. I always struggled with those as I was so painfully shy at her age, she’s very brave 🙂 #WotW

    Aw Sophie looks so cute and well done Sophie its so daunting when you are that age, but so exciting too. And so lovely that it reminded you of Jessicas performance too. Its such an exciting time when they start to roll and try to sit up. I have been having a clear out too it makes you feel so much better doesn’t it?
