Another busy week for us. When is it not?!
With the kids back at school, there was the usual post-holiday catch up to get done, and added to that was organizing my eldest for heading off to an environmental camp for three days with his school.
He was so excited about it, and not in the least bit phased by it. A bittersweet moment for me, very proud of his independence, but a little pang that he doesn’t need me quite so much anymore.
I packed everything on the kit list, most of it came back unused. That’s 10 year old boys for you!
It was strange not having him around. It wasn’t that we missed him terribly, he was only gone for three days, and his teachers kept us updated with messages and photos. But, it did feel like there was something missing. Two few bodies on the school run and at dinner.
No realising at 9.00pm that he’s turned all the lights out in the playroom, and the volume down on the TV, so we’ll forget about him and not send him to bed *ahem*.
He had a fantastic time. Came back exhausted and full of stories. My big boy.
As for the other two, they kept forgetting that he was gone. And, this little girl was SO thrilled to see him on Friday afternoon. She launched herself at him for the biggest hug *melts*.
She too is looking, and seeming, far too grown up. Where on earth did she learn this hands-on-hips pose?! This is her dance recital costume, worn to have the photos for the programme taken. It’s very yellow, but she does look cute, even more so when she has the yellow umbrella that is part of the routine. Brave dance teachers introducing props!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely week. Head over to my Instagram feed to see the rest of this week’s 365 photos…
