“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”. Kahlil Gibran
The final week of a very long term was done.
A week of parents evenings, a Halloween disco and some very tired children.
We were proud of how well Daisy and Teddy are doing at school and we had another realisation that despite Daisy finding maths really challenging and occasionally upsetting, she is trying her hardest to be more positive and is finding the confidence to do her best and overcome the challenges she faces with it. We can’t ask for more than that and to just keep supporting her with it. The end of the week saw the big two disappear off to a survival themed Scout camp with TeamStein Daddy, the strength all the scouts showed by camping out in a months worth of rainfall in 24 hours was very admirable. Finlay in particular once again showed us that he can muck in and be a really positive team player when conditions get tough.
Before TeamStein Daddy left for a work course on Sunday afternoon we managed to head to the local Pumpkin Patch and get a few snaps. We were all very glad that we wore wellies, although perhaps a full snowsuit for Florence would have been wise as she face planted in the mud before we even got to the pumpkin field! It was a really lovely morning and they enjoyed an Autumn Picnic snack of hot chocolate and treats in the car afterwards before going home and carving them before Daddy left for the week. I’m now typing this whilst solo parenting all 4 for the week so I’m hoping that the rest of the week runs as smoothly as the weekend!
