week twenty three // escape to the beach

The most relaxing little coastal escape together for a long weekend - our first time travelling since March.
The coast is slowly reopening after going through so much over the past few months (from fires to corona) and it felt like glimmers of normalcy were returning, with being able to travel and eat out and explore again! We have gained new appreciation for these simple pleasures and it was lovely to see so many other families enjoying the same.
Grateful for more family time, in a new location! Vitamin Sea does wonders for the soul

week twenty two // lily's last week at home

my last week of homeschool, with my firstborn.
we had the sweetest week together, where Lily relished some solo brother-less time at home and some well-earned time off before the big return to school.
she has done an incredible job at home - her teachers have labelled her a shining star who is ready to totally smash highschool! she is soooo ready, having been able to work so independently and diligently the whole time. honestly, I don't even know what she has been doing because she has managed her work and schedule all on her own! she has thrived on creating her own routine, working so hard, finishing work early and being so organised. what a champ!
couldn't be prouder of this little munchkin!! we topped off the week with a girl's day, including our first shopping trip in months so lovely.
blessed to have this wonderful daughter of mine!

week twentyone // eli @ home

week twentyone // eli @ home
This was Eli's last week of homeschooling before he returns to school and Miles first week back.
It's been a wonderful to have Eli learning at home for a while, he has impressed and amazed me at how he has done. Hard working, diligent, responsible, organised, eager to understand and eager to do his best. Also a big fan of all the online platforms, he is such a 'tech guru' lol!
Us parents are super-duper proud of his focus and his good attitude. It's been a real blessing to engage deeper in his learning and see what a good little student he is
It was also nice to have a bit of special time together this week while little bro was getting back into the school groove!
