How is it July already? Where has the year got to? We may have spent the majority of our time ‘locked down’ hiding away in our own houses whilst busy homeschooling and such-like but times flown by. I’m so grateful for the light nights and the wonderful weather that summer offers, it’s certainly a welcome break for those dull, dank, dark days which seemed to drag on and on especially as we were unable to get out even if we’d fancied braving the elements.
Though the kids have been back at school for five months now, it’s not exactly been an easy ride what with the endless LFD tests, the class bubbles, and the mounds of masks which we’ve worn day-in-day-out.
Despite the stress, the surge-testing, the bubbles, the masks, and the endless disruption to their routine, the kids have really done us proud this year. Both J & E are doing really well both at home and at school, and I couldn’t be prouder of them both at this point in time. They’ve shown bravery, resilience, determination, effort, and enthusiasm at points where I literally had nothing left to give, yet there they were with smiles on their faces ready to face yet another day.
So here’s to you kids – you truly are an inspiration and I’m such a lucky Mum to have you both in my life. Here’s wishing you both a wonderful, very well-deserved summer break and I promise, we WILL get through this and there will be brighter days ahead for us all.
