With the COVID-19 lockdown rolling straight into the long school summer holidays, many parents, and in particular many mums are struggling with meeting the consistent demands of their multiple roles.
After 18 weeks of home-schooling, the prospect of another seven weeks of school holidays, without the opportunity to travel may be a tad daunting for many parents.
So that’s a wrap! We made it to the end of term. A very different term with so many different challenges. It has pushed my patience to the limits, challenged me in ways I didn’t think were possible, but most of all I’m really proud how all four children have handled this very strange period in time. We’ve created a lifetime of memories in a few months.
Outside of school catch up and check in sessions here are a few of the things we’ve been up to this week.
A new child on the horizon can be an incredible thing. There’s so much to look forward to, from first words to first steps, and even a first day at school. However, before you can start getting really excited about your impending arrival, you need to make sure that you feel comfortable from a financial perspective.
This week began a little differently to the others, with one of the children going into school for a two hour session. Today was just for year 7 pupils. The school did a brilliant job and children seemed happy, appearing with a cereal bar and a pack of antibacterial wipes at the end of the session.
Have you found yourself doing more activities outside with your children during lockdown? Have you made the most of those daily walks? Have you maximised your garden or outdoor space if you have one?
We started this week with high hopes for the weather. The forecast was good, so we were hoping to be outside a lot more again. The week started off very gloomy though, not at all what was forecast.
