Realising we need to slow it down a bit!

Over the last 4 weeks or so, we have pretty much been non-stop. Every day. I am tired, but that is nothing new. However, it is starting to show on the children, who are over tired and need a rest. Its my fault because I find it very hard to sit still, I like to be busy all of the time. I am pretty sure I have said something similar before, therefore I never seem to learn my lesson.

Don't get me wrong, we have had a totally awesome time enjoying the summer holidays and ticking off some things from our Summer bucket list. I just feel that with Chester starting Primary School in just a few weeks time, I need to give him more time to chill out before he faces a different kind of tiredness that is going to come with getting used to School.

Saying that, we have a hectic weekend lined up, not only is it my birthday weekend but it is also Lollibop festival. Which we are all super excited about!

So whilst I was at work last night, daydreaming, I decided that we really need to slow it down. So starting today, we will be doing things at a bit of a slower pace, or just not do them at all. We were meant to be going to a teddy bears picnic this morning, but seeing as Chester has swimming lessons at 8.30am all this week, I decided that we would give it a miss and create our own fun at home!

We spent the afternoon playing tea parties .....

and building things with bricks (and in Millie's case, knocking them down!)...

Speaking of Summer bucket list, we have so far managed to tick the following off of the list!

Make some Ice cream bread (it wasn't very nice, I will blog about it soon)

Take the Children to see Disney Planes, we did this on Sunday and they loved it!

Take Chester to see Monsters University, I took him last week and it was totally awesome! Had a really lovely Mummy and Son afternoon too!

Make our own pretend Currency, you can see how we got on here, but I will say that it is the best thing we have made for ages! Both children loved it and are still playing with it daily!

So as I said, we have been busy. We still have lots planned for the remainder of the Summer. But, now I am going to make more of an effort to spend more days doing chilled out play days. Sometimes those kinds of days are the most fun!
