Thanks a bunch

I really can't believe Arran is going to nursery next week, where has these last 3 years gone? His nursery is part of Kinaird primary school so he thinks he is going to school and tells me off if I say nursery. Arran has 2 weeks left at a private nursery which he has attended since he was 1 so it will be a sad farewell, missing both the staff and the children as some will go to a different school.

The card below was made for the staff at his nursery to thank them for making Arrans time there a very happy one.It won't be the last I see them as I know Lewis will be attending next year before he starts the nursery, boy that sounds scary!!!
