School Holiday Diary

I’ve been home this school holidays. The key to successful school holidays for me is to plan something to do everyday. This doesn’t have to be a huge outing for an entire day, but just something to look forward to. It may be a visit to a park, having friends over to play, planning an activity at home, going for a walk on the beach, visiting a museum or even doing some jobs at the shops (and buying an ice-cream to make it a bit special).

Making Most of Opportunity

My kids are great friends. But they also argue…like most kids I expect. There is always an adjustment period for our family during the school holidays as we settle into to a new routine (or lack there of it). While this adjustment can be draining for Mum (aka me), I love taking the opportunity to invest in family dynamics. So rather than seeing family friction as a “pain in the neck”, I try (try being the operative word here) and think of it as an opportunity. An opportunity for me to see where the kids are at. An opportunity for them to work on their relationship with each other. An opportunity for us all to regroup as a family. That’s what it is all about for me.

I’ll Be Back Soon

I’m pulling the kids out of school for the next 2 weeks while our family goes on a driving holiday. I do have posts scheduled but I won’t be here as often. I’ll be back soon!

    Have a wonderful time. These school holidays we have relaxed and enjoyed a break from routine. Three of my kids have had a nice haircut, which is a treat because they love it so much :)
