So very grateful

Today we attended our weekly home ed’ meet up. As I reflect on the day, I can’t help but just feel complete gratitude. Watching two people, that came from my body, interacting – actually blows my mind!image

I know all siblings play together but today, for the first time, I saw a special bond between them that I honestly haven’t seen before. I saw they were looking out for one another, helping each other, sticking up for each other and comforting one another. I witnessed first hand how their personalities compliment each other.

Perhaps because I was an only child for 13 years, I had no expectations for what sibling life was going to be like. Maybe all siblings are this close sometimes..? But for me, what I saw today was magical.

Magical – like gazing up at the night’s sky and catching a glimpse of a shooting star… Or when my toddler-self saw a hedgehog through the patio doors, nibbling away at the food I had just put out. Those magical moments I truly treasure and I’m so grateful to be a part of them.

I love my little ladies so much that my heart feels like it could actually burst. I still have to pinch myself every now and then as I cannot believe how lucky I am to have them in my life.

I never want these magical days to end.

New beginnings!

Firstly, I want to apologise for having not posted in so long. Unfortunately I was going through a very stressful time in my life which meant I just didn’t feel up to blogging on top of our already busy lifestyle. We suffered at the hands of very abusive and antisocial neighbours which lead to us having to move home. Thankfully our new home is much nicer and although I was sad to leave the home that my youngest daughter was born in, I have now come to terms with everything. I’m in a much happier place to start blogging and sharing our journey once again.

There’s so much to catch up on! I don’t think it’s possible, so I will just tell you about some exciting new things we are going to be doing.

Ava started swimming lessons today and she is also starting rainbows soon! We are also going to be taking on a cooking project on a weekly basis (Fridays!) so keep your eyes peeled for that as we will be sharing our recipes with you all. We will also be embarking on plenty of other craft projects that we will also be sharing!

I apologise for the very slap dash post but it would take me all day to write a post covering four months of activities! I just wanted to drop by to let you all know we are still here and plan to start sharing our journey with you, once again.
