I have not done much blogging lately due to spending time with my children over the long summer break. Isn’t it funny how time just slips away? Over the summer, we have spent time relaxing, playing games, visiting family and friends and having days out at the park, just to mention a few. The highlight of our summer was visiting family in Windsor.
Although the holidays were several weeks long, now, it feels like they went by in a flash. I enjoyed having my children both at home and I know that they loved spending the time with each other too. So often, with routines, school and other commitments my two children do not spend as much time just playing together. There is always somewhere we need to be or something we need to do. This summer, they spent a lot of time just playing and being in each others’ company.
Some parents that I talk to or read about on Social Media, either love having their children at home or think of it as stressful. I can see both sides of the discussion as it is sometimes difficult keeping them entertained, adjusting to the ‘holiday routine’ and not having much of a break from them but I really enjoyed our time together. If I’m truly honest, I didn’t really want the holiday to end as I had so much more that I wanted to do with them as well as wanting to take them to more days out.
I always think that my children aren’t going to be children for long. The time will fly by and is doing already. I really want to make the most of the time we have got together. It is so precious.
What do you think? Do you love of loathe the long summer break? What have you done as a family over the summer holidays to keep your children busy?
