Hey! I’m back in the blogging world at last after 12 days (yes 12 days!) of constant ‘after school’ and ‘during school’ activities. We have the busiest week done and now its back to the normal everyday stuff that we usually do. No rehearsals, shows or important sports games.
I was beginning to feel like I had time on my hands until my daughter reminded me that she volunteered both of us to climb a mountain this saturday with a team from her school. And I’m not joking! See that pointy bit of mountain in the photo. That’s what we are climbing. I’ll post about it next week if I survive!
But back to the present time, I’ve been so proud of my kids this last week. Yes, there were tears and tantrums, and I’m not proud to say some of them were mine. And we finished the week like total wrecks in dire need of quiet and downtime. But during our crazy time, my girls stunned me with musical brilliance at recitals, danced their hearts out on the stage of our local theatre for two nights running, did well at school and amazed me at the amount of knowledge and confidence they have. It was all worth it.
Next time though, when I know I have a busy time coming up, I will be more organised and have some blog posts written and ready to publish so I don’t leave such a gap between posts. And I will freeze a few extra dinners. See, I am learning!!
Now did someone mention a mountain?
