Tuesday marked the end of our third week of holidays and I can honestly say that the last few days have been a bumpy ride.
We have had to deal with two tornado threats in the same day C was flying to London. I have had to try and lift the mood of a very homesick child (who would have thought after almost a year), while my other child has been totally unreasonable, teary and grumpy for no other reason than being tired (or maybe having had enough of me!).
Yesterday, all of us cried and had tantrums. Yep.
When I start considering homeschooling again, can someone remind me of the effect 24/7 has on our relationship?!
But all this aside the last week has had its lot of good moments, very good ones even.
Some days it was all too much…
I hand made my first whipped body butter!
He learnt to tie up his shoes…
And tried to teach his brother how to!
They helped their friends sell lemonade
We caught up with a really good friend in Chicago and celebrated the first anniversary of visiting that beach for the first time.
We watched the wind blow water about before turning into a powerful storm.
We went to see Inside Out and loved it.
