We just did our Christmas program, and now it is finished, we are on holiday. It was great fun. The 7th and 8th graders did a skit about why Jesus came into the world, and the sixth grade did some monologues. I had not heard them before, and so it was the first time hearing them and the lower school sing. Now we are on holiday, and so we won’t be going back to school until Monday 5th January. It is an emotional time. Looking back 1 year, I was playing the ‘complaining middle school student’ in a production that was like a natural talking thing. That was also when we said goodbye to Miss Saunders, and when Essi moved ‘across’ to what was the 5th grade.
Tomorrow afternoon I am going to Emily’s birthday party, and then in the evening we have a Strictly Come Dancing party at Matt and Susanne’s house, where we will all watch the final. On Tuesday, we have a party at our house.
