Downtown Walnut Creek is a sweet little area with plenty of fancy boutiques and restaurants.
After a week filled with, among other things, parent/teacher conferences we decided to spend the Saturday there - having lunch and do some shopping.
Having met most of my childrens' teachers during these conferences I cannot be anything but happy & proud. They all three got the best feedback possible, and more than one teacher said to me: "whatever you do, keep doing it".
Parenting is hard, and so many times you ask yourself "are we doing what's best for our kids or should we do it differently?". Whether it's about moving them around the world and making them change schools and leave their friends behind or about letting them stay out late Friday night...you always question yourself somehow. Getting all this positive feedback, knowing we must be doing something right, gives me all the energy I need.....for now..
Giving my daughter Filippa the feedback from her teachers she tells me:
"I have to be successful because I like expensive things!"
So off to Walnut Creek we went...
Tomorrow it's Halloween.
The kids have made cupcakes, decorated the house and the patio.
They've chosen what to wear, we've filled a tray with goodies......
They're ready...and so am I.....Hallo Wine!!! 🍷
