It's been a big week around these parts due to the kids going back to school - or la rentrée as they call it here in France.
I can't deny I've been stressing about this for a while. The kids still don't speak French fluently (just enough to survive) and that makes big, crowded places like schools seem daunting. Our eldest has also started at a new school (big primary school boy now) while his sister stayed behind in maternelle (for 3-5 year olds), separated from her beloved big brother. It could have been a hot mess of tears, and not only from the kids.
But I'm happy to report it all seemed to go well. They were both content when I picked them up yesterday afternoon, and last night there were no terrible nightmares unlike when they first attended French school in November. Phew.
So theoretically I should have a lot more time on my hands, with only the baby at home four days a week. Theoretically.
Here he is destroying the contents of the kids' drawing table.
Little booger gave me the biggest smile when I came to investigate.
But who am I to stand between a baby and his sister's glitter pens?
Just kidding, I confiscated those babies as soon as I took this photo. I love glitter as much as the next girl but sparkling babies belong in Breaking Dawn, not in our house.
On the crafting front I am still musing over this problem.
I'm giving something a try, but not sure how it will turn out.
Only one way to know!
