Nearly Over...

Our children have been on school holidays since the beginning of June.  And honestly, I have almost forgotten what that morning routine of being up, dressed quickly, bag packed, breakfast, teeth and out-the-door feels like.
And so, I am feeling reflective and grateful for these past two months.  I am thankful for the long plays in the garden catching mini-beasts, the bike riding, pajama days, reading stories, water play, tea parties, visiting parks, baking, making play dough creations, movie marathons, puzzles and painting nails.
Here's a little look at just a few of the things we got up to both in Thailand and Australia during our school break:

We've definitely made some wonderful memories.

Gorgeous photos, all of them, but I do love the grotty feet. Such a true sign that a child has had a blast!

Thanks Mandy. And I agree about the grotty feet. Next week though I'm back to trying to keep them all looking clean and well-kept hahahaha.

Glad you have had such a nice break.
