(Showing off her efforts, trying to colour in the entire wall in sparkle chalk)
The first term of school is inching towards the end - and the exhaustion is setting in as the new normal takes its toll on my girl. A quiet home day was called for this week - a day for Lily to potter around contentedly at her art desk, chill out with her siblings and just have some down time. School is such an exciting and exhausting experience, I thoroughly believe a few well timed home-days are crucial along the way to maintain the enthusiasm for learning!
It was like the old days, having my three at home again for an easy, cosy day together. I liked it, I liked it a lot.
Intently telling me all about his playdough creation.
I love how much he loves to invite me into his world. He is an open book, this boy - a book I love to read!
Just can't get enough of this face.
Oh, baby boy. These are bittersweet days. I love seeing you grow, flourish and change. But oh, oh, oh it's hard for me to leave your precious baby days behind.
Love when we get to go places all together.
Love glancing over, when we are separately socialising, knowing this lovely man is mine.
