Holidays ahhhh...

We're 2 weeks in and we've settled down a bit, mornings are busy times, we try to do activities together - reading, puzzle books, crafts, science, trips to the park. Afternoons have very little structure and we play however the boys choose, they also get the chance to use 'devices' (TV, Tablets, Computer) if they've been good during the morning.

We've had a couple of PJ days and some trips out but we're doing it at our pace and it's lovely. I'm busy on a couple of makes myself but am not pushing on as I want to enjoy my boys before September routines come around again

Big bounces on a weekend camping trip...
 At last a cooler day, didn't stop us having lots of fun in and around the tent...
 Planting Cress and Mustard seeds and watching the mini forest grow...
 Believe it or not, this was a PJ day - a super PJ day...
 Intense concentration on a painting and stamping project...
Sure the first cooler mornings will have me reaching for yarn and needles with more urgency but for now it's fun to let the creative juices flow in different directions doing projects with the boys.
