Alone at the park.....

Usually every Friday after school we get an ice cream and I take the girls to the park.....Now that Becky has started Secondary school it's all changed....She doesn't finish school until later so it was just Ellie, Stu and I....

It was so strange Becky not being there.....Ellie was like a little lost lamb without her and rather sad to start with!

Becky wasn't there to run about with, go on the sea-saw, chase her down the slide and get dizzy on the roundabout with.....


We cheered Ellie up and said there will be plenty of times to play in the park with Becky on weekends and in the school holidays....


Ellie has a great time in the end and when she saw Becky she told her all about the great time she had missed at the park....I think we're going to have to change our visits to the park to the weekend....

  1. The girls are obviously very close and it sounds like a major change for Ellie without her big sister. I'm sure she will soon adapt and relish telling Becky all about their adventures. It sounds like a lovely way to end the week so I hope you keep it going. Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids

  4. It's a difficult one now she's at highschool age, those days will soon be long gone where your eldest will be telling she's to old to play in the park and wanting to hang out with friends more. I remember when I went from primary to high and felt like I hadn't changed, all of a sudden old friends had grown up in mind Summer and were acting much older then they were. Anyways, at least your youngest had a lovely time in the end x

  8. Poor thing. The younger ones do feel lost without the bigger one around. Hope Becky wasn't sad to miss out on the fun time. x

  12. Ah bless her. I guess September winds of change bring lots of new things for us all. I am glad she cheered up in the end. Is there a big difference in time of finish for the two of them? I hope they settle into the new routine.

  14. My eldest has just started secondary too but still enjoys the (teenage) parts of the playground. She also finishes later but the school is much closer than our primary so don't really notice the difference.
