This is the first week, all year, where I haven’t taken a single photo of my children! That’s what a full week of school and activities does.
It has been a busy week, but it’s been a productive one too. I had a long list of things to catch up on, and I have managed to tick them all off. So, I’m feeling a bit more in control.
Still missing the freedom of the summer holidays, but at least the house is getting back in to some kind of order. And, I’ve managed to fill in ALL the forms, send in ALL the right stuff to school and remember ALL the activities. I win at this week!
Top of my list was sorting through the paper that came home at the beginning of the summer, and had sat in a pile ever since. And been added to. On a daily basis… It took a while, but I’m up to date and I’m sure the recycling peeps will love me next week!
P A P E R
I’ve spent the morning going through various piles of paper. You know, the forest that comes home from school, the majestic craft mountain on the kitchen table, the rolling hills of randomness on the coffee table. So much recycling! But, every so often I come across colorful splodges like this that are surprisingly beautiful and they make me smile. Makes the whole process less painful!
My little girl definitely adds to the paper piles more regularly than the rest of us, but some of her additions are really quite pretty. This one might even go into a frame :)
In other news, the soccer season has started well and the 8yo seems to have taken to being a goal keeper, so we’ll see where that goes. The wee girl is still loving school, and the daily afternoon meltdowns are easing. And, the 11yo has joined the Drama Club and got his first, small, role (and will now spend half his after-school life at rehearsals *ahem*) and went to his first Middle School dance.
All go here!
Hope you’ve all had a lovely week. Head over to my Instagram feed to see the rest of this week’s 365 photos…
