We are into the first week of school holidays here in New Zealand. A two week break before the final term of the year. Term four! I can't believe how quickly it has come around.
It will be busy. Swimming lessons will start again for us, and Bell has put her name down for a second dance class. And the countdown to Christmas and the all important summer holidays.
For now though we are enjoying our break. We had a slow school holiday last term but this time we plan on keeping busy with days out, catching up with friends and spending as much time outside as possible.
After dropping Bell and a friend in town to go to the movies today, the boys and I visited the Botanic Gardens. While they ran about I checked out the gardens. Everything is looking so lush and green. My thumbs, I think, are starting to turn green. Dare I say it!
After a quick lunch in town, we headed back home for some time in the garden before driving back in again to pick up two very giggly girls and returning back home again. I can not believe how much they can TALK, constantly. I wonder if I was like that?
Are you on school holidays where you are? What are your plans? What keeps your children occupied and happy?
P.S. Bell and Tom were fighting about an hour into the start of the school holidays. Combine this with the house being turned upside down due to Mr H and I painting the rooms. Why I decided to start in the school holidays, I will never know?!
