It's been a good one. We didn't do anything extraordinary. I had work and study that needed doing ...
not to mention an attempt to rein in the chaos. I was pleased to take a breather from the constant activity that was first term and to be honest contrary to other holidays I'm not breathing a sigh of relief at the start of the new term, if anything my feelings are tending towards the negative. Some holidays the kids seem to be at each other's throats, fighting, arguing and when that's not the case they're at my side whinging. Not this time. A strict enforcement of a maximum of 1hr of screen time a day may have had something to do with it. Did I say it's been a good holiday?
There's been relaxed mornings with a two week lego world building project.
I've had helpers, they've basically taken over the kitchen clean-up (I follow after with bench wiping and stove cleaning), as well as doing other odd jobs that pop up.
We spent some time down at mum and dad's beach house.
New games were invented.
My lack of enthusiasm for the start of term may also be due to the schedule for tomorrow night after school.
4pm Parent teacher interviews
5:30-6:30pm Soccer training for The Boy and Little Girl
7-8pm Basketball training for The Big Girl
8-10pm Small group (at my house)
Oh and Hubby is overseas. Crazy, right?
Today the plan is to make sure food is in the house, tidy up and make sure we have everything ready for the new term ... that's the plan ...
better start implementing it before the kids destroy the one room in the house that was actually tidy (apart from our bedroom which is out of bounds for destroying)
