Hour by Hour.
A project collaboration with my talented friend Jess, please be sure to head on over to check out her hour too!
Showcasing our daily routine one hour at a time. Starting from the early hours of the morning, until the very end of the day, we are sharing our life with you.
Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that we really take for granted. The moments we hang out, not doing much, but together. The rush of getting dressed and getting the breakfast routine done and dusted. The school run. The never ending supply of laundry. Sitting together for mealtimes.
I don’t want to force my family into activities that they have no interest in, just to get a pretty photo. They won’t appreciate those memories in 30 years. They will appreciate that we lived. We lived together, we fought, we cried, we laughed, we played. We enjoyed life.
This is our story.
We’ve been going to Sebastian’s school (for next year) to the library once a week as a preparation for grade Prep. We did it last year for Silas too and it was great. It’s just a way for the kids to get used to going to school and seeing other children and teachers around. The librarian reads a story to the group and then has an activity prepared to go with the story. She puts such an effort into it and you can see the joy in her eyes each session. My kids love it. They also get to borrow books for the week, which is an added bonus. So Sebastian has his own library bag and really looks forward to each week when we can go back to ‘get his new books!’
The other part of this story, is that I’ve been pushing a little harder these days to get Sariah sitting on the potty more. She’s been doing so well but I am not too hard on her just yet, we’re taking it slow. She would probably sit there all day if I left her. Had to document that =)
