Term 1 has started for us here.
Today Bell started back at school and Tom back at kindergarten. I was planning on getting up early but due to the night antics of George I ended up sleeping in! Thankfully Bell did not start till mid morning and there was no rush to get Tom to kindy until around 9am. Apart from the slightly later than planned start it was a fairly calm start to the day.
It was a quiet morning here at home with just George and I pottering around, tidying up after the long weekend. The week will be an easy one and then from next week it is all on with Bell's after school activities starting and Tom taking on an extra kindy day.
Clothes were laid out the night before and Bell's uniform and stationery were sorted in advance as well as lunches, this always makes a huge difference to a busy week day morning.
I loved the summer holidays, it was a very Kiwi/laid back one but I'm now looking forward to getting back into a routine with the kids and hopefully sorting out George when it comes to his sleep (I feel like I need match sticks to keep my eyes open today).
Bell and Tom are now back home and despite initial butterflies and worries (and Tom insisting that he would cry when I left) they both returned happy and looking forward to the week ahead.
Do you have children starting back at school or kindergarten this week? Are you all ready to go?
Do you have a school/kindergarten routine that helps you get out the door easily in the morning?
Happy Term 1 everyone!
