We are 1 week exactly into the 12 week school summer holiday. The "I'm bored" started at 1.19pm yesterday and hasn't stopped since. Children used to a full packed day of learning are left to follow mom or dad around whilst they go to the gym or run errands! No wonder they're bored! So, as … Continue reading #12weeksofsummer
So since Leo graduated today I will introduce our children from youngest to oldest. Leo, 4 but as the 3rd child a big boy since the day he was born!
