Today my husband and I attended a school fete.
I had a great time. I entered raffles, brought fairy floss and had a look at eveything that was there.
Although this fete was the same as last year. For me it was extremely different.
The difference you ask, is that last year we took our two foster boys aged four and six.
So last year, while we still entered raffles, brought fairy floss and had a look at everything. We also saw the boys faces light up after having them painted, we watched as they bounced as high as the could on the bouncy castle, and listened as the laughed the whole time they were on the catepiller ride.
So for me, today was a simple reminder that although sometimes it is hard work with children, there are always going to be things that are so much better with them.
