“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”This week our family life can be summed up as being busy again. I feel the slower pace of the rest of the year has been replaced by the rushing around that school routine brings. I’m hopeful that we can find ways of balancing out the busier days of routine with some slower weekends going forward.
We managed to get through our first full week pretty smoothly and on the whole enjoyed the routine albeit it felt extremely long. They were all super tired by Friday – change that to all 6 of us were exhausted! Three out of four have a cold which I’m sure is a standard welcome back to the Autumn term!
I’m thankful I took a couple of photos of Florence on a few outings on her nursery days off. We didn’t capture many family photos this weekend as we have been busy updating areas of the house, building furniture and reorganising. However we did enjoy a trip to Ikea with just the big two and we all enjoyed shopping without little people causing mayhem and the fact we haven’t been to Ikea for nearly 2 years.
I hope that you’re all getting to grips with new routines, busy family life and navigating all the new changes and restrictions.
