In less than a week, my three children will be back at preschool, infant school and junior school. Part of me feels a little sad that the summer has disappeared so quickly but I definitely don’t want to get caught up in the 18 summers panic that did the rounds at the start of the holidays!
It has been a wonderful, busy and tiring summer. We have been to Wales for over a week. We had a week to recover before we had an excellent time at our wedding. We had a week of peace and quiet before the onslaught of family last week and then the bank holiday away. This week I am frantically trying to get my head sorted for going back to work andschool on Tuesday!
But I am excited about the return to school 🙂 Why?! Let me tell you…
Catching up with friends
We have been quite cut off from friends this summer as we have been away and so have they and it has been tricky to coordinate time that the children can see their school buddies.
I LOVE routine and structure! Waking up with a clear plan of what to do and where to go is just perfect in my eyes!
The children absolutely thrive on learning new things so will relish being back at school, surrounded by facts, tasks and an endless supply of information.
This isn’t as mean as it sounds! Whilst I am looking forward to time to myself to focus on work and my blog, it is hugely beneficial to the children to develop confidence, independence and self-reliance.
