"A Portrait of my children once a month, every month, in 2013" via Che and Fidel
Oh February, you are such a tricksy month! The beginning of the new school year brings so much change and excitement with new routines and activities. If you have danced this dance before you know it is going to take a good month to get into the swing of things before everyone is fully up to speed with what's going on - which day to catch the bus home, which day is library day, news day, kinder day, swimming. If Mummy forgets to pop the slow cooker on in preparation for a busy Thursday afternoon then things can turn pear-shaped very quickly. February is the month where you realise whether or not you have bitten off more than you can chew. If you have then there is absolutely nothing you can do except chew like crazy until the end of term and re-jig things the following term. This year, I think I may have finally, finally found just the right balance and we are managing to find a decent amount of quiet time during the weekdays.
Eleanor: Back into the new School Year.
Charles: Admiring the boats at The Wooden Boat Festival.
George: Mr Serious.
Noah: "Another feather for your collection Mum".
Flynn: 3 Months old, here mesmerised by the Oak Tree canopy above.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!
