A Birthday Milestone

Ruby & Poppy turned 5 on October 28th – it feels like a milestone to us for many reasons.  Firstly, and most importantly, because they have grown into their own little characters.  Different and yet still the same in the way only identical twins can be!  Secondly because we are on the brink of having all of our kids in school – yes the same school, at the same time, one drop off, one pick up – the easing in our schedule will be a relief for everyone.

The girls celebrated their birthday with all their kinder buddies at their gymnastics centre.  They had a wonderful time and were thoroughly spoilt by all their friends.

I’m typing this on the eve of another milestone for the girls – tomorrow morning is their first half day transition into school.  Their outfits were laid out and bags packed before settling into bed tonight.  Fingers crossed it lives up to their expectations!
