Secondary Schools, Homework and Cooking – Living Arrows 40/52

We had a bit of a busy week last week as we went to a couple of secondary open evenings so the boys had a couple of late nights. Yup, you heard right – we are looking at SECONDARY schools. I can’t quite believe it’s that time already. It was a real eye-opener looking around the schools, they are so much bigger compared to the boy’s primary school now. A big milestone. E still has another year of Primary school to go but we were advised to start looking at schools in Year 5 to prepare.

The weekend was a relatively quiet one. M had a swimming lesson and afterwards, we popped into town to buy the boys some football gear as they have both started Football and Rugby club after school.

M also tried the next size bike while we were in the shop. He has grown out of his old one and we are thinking of getting him a new bike for Christmas. He looks so grown up on this one!


E has still been doing bits and pieces on his Ancient Greece project and he decided to cook us a greek dish on Sunday. With a bit of help, he made some greek meatballs, tzatsiki and a greek salad.


It was nice not to have to cook for a change, give it a few more years and I am hoping he will be doing a lot more of the cooking!

I’m sharing weekly photos of the boys to celebrate their childhood and linking up to the Living Arrows linky

  1. Woah, secondary schools! I am so not ready for that! I hope it all went well x

  2. I’m glad we’ve got a good few years before we have to start thinking about secondary schools – although there’s only one in our town so it’s pretty much decided already!
