I have a feeling this week will be an interesting one.
We’re into the third week of all of us being at home, and the first week of trying to fit school work into the juggle of it all.
Over the last week we’ve just tried to keep things as, relatively, normal as we can.
We’ve not really been out other than to pick up food for us and Steve’s parents from the supermarkets. We tied one of these local supermarket visits in with a walk to the local park, so Steve and the children could get a bit more fresh air and exercise while I had the rather surreal experience of shopping.
The children have been so understanding about not being able to go to the swings, and Rhys was happy to just practice his yo-yo skills while they were outside.
That’s what the green string is in his photo.
He had a yo-yo a while ago and never quite got the hang of it, so he is so proud of himself for mastering the skill with this one he was given at Christmas.
Maybe with the extra time at home now we can work on some new tricks with it, there must be tons of video tutorials on YouTube he could learn from!
In other exciting news, Nerys lost another tooth last week.
It had been wobbly for a while and she kept questioning why it was taking so long to fall out. Then all of a sudden, out it came!
It took her a day or two to adjust to this big gap in her smile, but I think she rather likes it now.
To be honest, it took me a day or two to adjust to it too. She just looks so different now.
What’s really funny though is that a handful of children in her class at school have also lost the same tooth in the last week or two. We have a WhatsApp group for us parents and last night it was filled with gorgeous photos of gappy smiles.
Through all of this craziness I’m so pleased that we have the technology to be able to stay in touch with everyone. I have a feeling I might be relying on the mums at the other end of that group over the next few weeks while I try and get to grips with doing school work at home!
