Back to School

I've just dropped the boys off at school.  They went on Monday for a half day induction, stayed home yesterday and after that false start, school in definitely back on!

I snapped these photos of the boys on Monday.

H was acting up and refusing to smile. A said, "How come you managed to make them smile ?" LOL. I was shouting out to H, "Say cheese, Happy Monday, Come on" whilst he was adamant, "No". So when I was jumping up and down to make him laugh, he thought I couldn't possibly be ready to take a shot. That's when it went "SNAP".  He conceded a half smile.

J is in the sixth form this year which means they get to choose what they wear.  He is wearing his suit this week but no doubt the smartness will degrade over the year. Can you ever wear a suit trousers low slung, I wonder ?
So what have you got planned for the day ? I have some scrappy projects brewing in my head so let's see how they translate to paper. Whatever you do, enjoy yourself.

Incidentally, I have something to let you know.  I am having a one day workshop in Cambridge on Saturday 29th September 10-4. Maybe you'd like to spend a day with some lovely Cambridge Croppers ? Why don't you look our group up on Facebook.

Don't they look smart! LOL at the trouser question....Nathan has new school trousers & when he tried them on he said they were too long...yes you've guessed it! he had them very 'low slung'!! Needless to say he was pulled up...& so were the trousers...& lo & behold, a perfect fit!! :D Looking forward to seeing you on the 29th, do you need me to send you payment up-front? :D

lol! Round here it's hard to get trousers with long enough legs. If they're low slung it's because he's trying to pull them down to cover his ankles.

They do look very smart. Best of luck for the new school year
