Home School and Lockdown: My Daily Routine

We’re into week four (or is it five now?) of home school/ lockdown here in the UK, so life is beginning to feel somewhat ‘normal’ again- at least to the degree that I’m used to this by now. Of course, lockdown can never feel normal. Not going to school can never feel normal. Not seeingContinue reading “Home School and Lockdown: My Daily Routine”

Dear Girl: A Letter

This post has been a long time coming… I wrote it in my notebook late one night a couple of months ago when I couldn’t sleep. Since then, it’s been sitting in my drafts, waiting for the right time to be published. I really feel passionate about this- it’s something that’s been on my heartContinue reading “Dear Girl: A Letter”

My Favourite Home School Drinks

Here we are again… back to lockdown and home school. By the time we reached our second lockdown, this was all getting pretty old and I honestly didn’t think we’d be switching back to school from home- but now here we are! The days feel long, lonely and often boring, especially when I have schoolContinue reading “My Favourite Home School Drinks”

The Importance of Goals

I remember going back to school in January after a Christmas break when I was a lot younger- maybe 7 or 8. We’d come back, excited to see our friends again and with renewed energy, full of stories from over the Christmas break- who got what and who went where. The teachers always took thisContinue reading “The Importance of Goals”

Jesus Is the Reason

Decorations. Music. Food. Gifts. Family time. Movies. Shopping. Cards. Trees. Candy. Friends. Stockings. The Christmas season is so full of goodness and happiness that it often passes by in a whir and is over before we know it! I know for me (being a PK), my Christmas seasons are normally filled with Church- delivering leaflets,Continue reading “Jesus Is the Reason”

This Is the Day

30 days left in 2020. Can you believe it?!?! I know for one I can’t! This year has gone so fast, I can still vividly remember December 31st, 2019. My family and I were spending a couple nights with friends we visit every New Years. The five of us girls were eagerly awaiting midnight; watchingContinue reading “This Is the Day”

A Thought for Thanksgiving

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and things are beginning to get festive! In our house alone my mom has ordered fabric for my sister to make seasonal bunting, and this morning I went out to buy a pumpkin for my Thanksgiving centrepiece. In the UK, Thanksgiving isn’t a public holiday, but in the US where it is,Continue reading “A Thought for Thanksgiving”
