I went on my first kindy excursion this week; the first of many school excursions I predict for my future. This one was to the beach and the weather was magic.

It was wonderful. I don’t know if that feeling will wear off with each excursion and the endless knock knock jokes and I Spy marathons, but I’m hoping it doesn’t. To spend time with Miss 5 and her friends was delightfully cute. To spend one-on-one time with just one of my kids was really special.

And to see her beaming face when she reached for my hand so we could sit together on the tram journey to and from the beach was something I will always treasure. And when she wrapped her arms around me and said: “Mum, I love you very much and I am so happy you came with me today” will always make my heart burst.

And when she pointed at the guitar school and proudly told all the kids, teachers and other parents that that was where her Dad went to “Rock School” was a little embarrassing and when she told me that I could only wear my sunglasses if all the other parents were was a sign of things to come and when she made a sandcastle to resemble boobs was excruciating!!

Do you like going on school excursions? Or do the thousands of knock knock jokes by the kids drive you crazy?!!
