Thanks for joining me again this week. I really appreciate every comment that is left for me, and enjoying reading each one. So how has your past week been??
Here are my photos to show you what we got up to last week.
22 February:I thought I would take a photo of our supper as our P.O.T.D. Spaghetti bolognaise is something I often cook on a Monday night because it's quick and easy. We all really enjoy it, though Ray is not a huge fan! It's especially nice with some freshly grated cheese on top!
23 February:Today was a huge day for us!! After months of soul searching we decided to move the boys back to Uelzen. The academic pressure that was placed on the kids at Ichthus was ridiculous, and the boys (especially Caide!) were just not able to maintain a balance between academics, sport & play. I am 200% sure we have made the correct decision, it just feels right!
24 February:It feels wonderful that the boys are able to play again in the afternoons. Since the boys went back to Uelzen yesterday the atmosphere in our home has changed. The pressure is off and it feels wonderful! My kids can be kids again, the way it should be. I am happy!!
25 February:My boys are still playing! Caide pulled out his Carrera car track (which they haven't played with ages!!) and have played with it solidly for the last 2 days. Constructive play, I love it!
26 February:I got to wear my Xmas shoes & knitted socks to work today, so nice that the weather was cooler. It was hot in the office though! It was a hectic, stressful & busy morning. It was month end and financial year end so I had loads to do!! Yay, yay it's Friday!
27 February:Occasionally on the weekends we get the boys to help with the dishes. I think it's important for them to help around the house sometimes. Some days they help with a good grace, and on others, not so much. Can you guess how the mood was today??
This morning was quite an emotional one for me. We had to say good-bye to friends of ours that are leaving for Canada. Dane & Debra have been our friends for the last 9 years, and Debra has been one of my closest and most true friends. We have been through a lot, and I am going to miss her terribly!! When we got home I decided to try a smoked chicken salad for lunch. It was a beautiful day, so we decided to have lunch outside under the lapa.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a good week ahead of you!! I would really like for you fellow Project Lifers to become a Follower of my blog, it would mean a lot to me, it will only take a minute. Thanks!!
