“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.” Well here we are in lockdown in January. I was expecting it but it still has knocked me a little. I think it was the stress of committing to starting school on Monday with the stats as they were and then to be told that evening that we wouldn’t be returning the next day.
On Tuesday we made the decision to keep Florence out of preschool and at home with us for now.
Now we’re back to homeschool. One thing for sure is, I’m not putting myself under as much pressure as I did the first time around. I’m lowering my expectations and crossing everything that the kids will do the same for me!
Fin has had live lessons as he’s in year 10 and I think Daisy and Teddy will do going forward soon. Florence has been a bit of a challenge as she’s missing nursery and is confused after going for a day but I’m hopeful we can work through this and she will start to settle soon.
Lockdown and homeschool aside we have been treated to some lovely wintry weather this week. It was great to see some snow as Teddy and Flo can’t really remember playing in much of it. We all enjoyed sledging and we kept on going until we were tired, hungry, freezing and wet! It’s amazing how snow can just transport you to being a carefree child and I smiled the entire way down the hill!
We have ended this week outdoors, doing what we do best. Which is a good job as it’s pretty much all we can do in lockdown! The kids enjoyed walking through the woods smashing the ice and standing on shallow ponds to scare me slightly!
I hope that you’re all coming to terms with the January lockdown and I’m sending you all love.
