We are well into the new school year and finally after 12 weeks things seem to be slowing down around here. We all have our daily routines established and for now things are rolling along smoothly. We did hit a bump in September where it seemed us parents were just too tired to cope and it seemed the kids were given the opportunity to fall back to their old TV watching/ IPad days. I declared, “Enough is enough” in October and away went it all for 30 days. What an amazing break from the noise and distractions of our technology driven world.
It has been great getting back to what we do best, being a fun family!
We have been playing this balloon game for days. The kids beg us to play any chance they get! The rules are easy, keep the balloon in the air. They have come up with many new rules to keep it challenging, including a doubles game.
We enjoyed a Harry Potter Potions making night at the library.
Maddie as Hermione Granger at character day at school.
Other random happenings at our house:
And of course we had plenty of Halloween fun.
