Week 50 squillion of lockdown and it’s been, like most of the others, full of ups and downs. So for our Living Arrows post this week, here are some of our ups and downs of lockdown life 🙂
I’ve really noticed this week just how much the twiglets are growing up. I mean, that’s an up and a down in itself really, as I’m super emotional at how big they are! But I’m also so proud of how their little personalities are developing. I feel like they’ve come on so much since we’ve been in lockdown. They really are proper little people now. H and C have always been very different from each other, which I love as I just think it’s amazing!
But as you can tell from the photo above, they’re both equally full of character and attitude! I just love this photo of them – it captures their personalities so well 🙂
Another up this week has been having some more lovely garden days. I’m still so grateful whenever we have sunny weather so that we can enjoy family time together in the garden. The paddling pool is about the only thing that keeps the whinging at bay!
I feel like our motivation for home schooling is going down further and further each week. At the start I was so keen, as were the twiglets, and none of us can really be bothered half the time now! I’m lucky in that H and C aren’t completely switched off from it yet – mostly they will still willingly sit and write or whatever.
I’m also still feeling fairly anxious generally at the moment. The school decision is still hanging over me. I keep thinking we’ve decided what we’re going to do, then we change our minds again! At the twigs’ school, Reception children won’t be going back until the 22nd June anyway, so still a little way off.
Anyway, hope everyone else has had a good week, hopefully with more ups than downs! Half term now, which is great in some ways as it takes the pressure off with the home learning. But at the same time, having no routine or structure is always a bit tricky for us so we’ll have to see how we go I think!
