What a way to start back at school! This afternoon there was a party, in celebration of the royal wedding. There was food, games and pretty clothes. All the children came home carrying souvenirs.
We have never been a family for collecting souvenirs, but it is lovely to have something special to remember the day. It’s one of those things that I expect the girls will remember for the rest of their lives. Apart from the wedding day itself, I will remember toasting William and Kate with lemonade and singing along to the national anthem in a hall full of children who weren’t all quite sure how it should go.
Mr 3 didn’t want to be left out. I tried my hardest to get a decent photo, but there was a choice between glare or a really slow exposure this afternoon, and combined with his determination to be in front of the camera as always, the shot above is, sadly, the best I could do. I have come to realise that no matter how much I would love to be a good photographer, my talents lie elsewhere.
Regardless of my ability (or lack of) with a camera, thanks for the opportunity for a great party, William and Kate!
