This week I sent my big kids back to school with a minimum of fuss but a lot of exhaustion!
This week I totally forgot about my ‘photo a day’ plans. I didn’t even take a ‘first day of school photo!’, but we did have a first day of school milkshake!
This week my big boy learned to ride his bike without training wheels!
Last week we accidentally forgot to put chlorine in the pool and it went green. This week we are busy testing and skimming and cleaning and chlorinating. Pools are a lot of work, even small, above ground ones – but they are worth it!
This week Noah decided he was not afraid of jumping off the ladder into the pool and putting his face in the water!
This week I’m seeing if I have any unused nappies lying around for the Nappy Collective who collect unused disposable nappies from collection points around Australia and redistribute them to organisations that support families in crisis or in need. The next collection is Feb 17th to March 2nd, check the web site for drop off locations if you can help and like their facebook page to keep up to date.
I’m thinking about making this potato strudel for dinner this week, but with zucchini as well as potato.
This week the rainbow loom has been working overtime as the girls make bracelets for their school friends. This site has a great collection of patterns and tutorials, but man some of them are hard!
What have you been up to this week??
