As you read this, we are hopefully soaking up sun rays on a beach in Spain but of course looking at the forecast now, as I type this, we might be hiding under an umbrella instead. Either way, it’s warmer than home right now. I can’t believe how weird the weather has been this April. One day last week, I think we had all four seasons in the space of an hour. The skies really didn’t know what to do.
B has been loving wearing his uniform shorts to school so much so he had a total meltdown the last few days because he had to wear pants again. “But Mommy its summer now why do I have to wear pants again?” he asked. The only reply I had was, “get used to it, we live in England.” lol I am already for it to be summer and warm. The kids have all their vibrant warm weather clothes ready to be worn out and stained on and I am ready for flip flops! Who is with me?
This month, has been very so busy for us we haven’t really been home to capture us as a family. Sometimes when you are constantly on the go, it’s hard to get the opportunity to get us four together for a quick snap. The beginning of the month we were still in Ireland with family from the Easter holidays and half term for B. When we came home it was a sea of christening, birthday parties, classes and either myself or husband working away for a few days. It’s like our house hasn’t been lived in much, this month, clearly why its been more tidy than normal too. We are ending April with our friends in Spain for some much needed sunshine and chill out time. Phew…
TOGETHER WE ARE LOVING…
Taking the Ferry over to Ireland to see Family.
The week of nice weather we had (that’s summer over folks haha).
Flying to Spain to see friends.
Biking riding in the park.
Sidewalk chalk and drawing silly faces.
Getting the kids more involved in cooking dinner each night.
I am looking at our calendar for May and I don’t think it slows down much. We have MM’s birthday coming up soon too. How do I have an almost three year old I will never know. Isn’t she still being swaddled and learning how to say, “momma”. Nope, that’s over and she even started calling me, MOM. I can’t take it. I tried ignoring it thinking it will be a funny phase or copying someone. I tried correcting her. In our house, we are officially just Mom and Dad which not only makes them seem more grown up but makes us feel that much older. All I say is, roll on summer for our time in America. Hope you aren’t sick of our USA spamming on instagram because it’s almost that time again folks.
