dear Toby, Happy Birthday to you!
11 today and I'm sure he's grown even more in the night.
What a shame to go to school today - having said that, he did have a very embarrassing (but nice) incident this morning.
Whilst waiting for the school gate to open, the children normally stand and chat which is what Toby and all his friends were doing this morning. There was a shriek behind me from a group of girls shouting Happy Birthday to him - one of the girls walked over and gave him a card and present. Of course that provoked lots of hilarity from the group. Poor old Toby (who is quite shy) went completely red, gave me the present and walked off down the path.........what a lovely thing to do though.
I can only imagine how embarrassed he was! I'm sure in a few years time it'll all be different.
I'll leave you with a photo of our cherry tree which is full of beautiful marshmallow blossom.
Have a good day everyone.
