How am I writing about my Siblings in April already? April has been an insanely busy month, thus far, for us with day trips and the Easter school holidays. I mean, don’t get me wrong, all of it has been amazing but it’s exhausting at the same time too.
April kicked off with a Kids Superhero Day cruise with Stenaline. For us, this was a pretty awesome way to kick start a whole new month. We had such a great day and it tired the kids out too which was a bonus for us Parents. It’s always a win to the grown-ups when we’ve partied the kids to sleepy land.
Are anyone else’s children going through a mega-fueled growth spurt? It must be something to do with Spring or whatever because my girls are growing like weeds. Actual speed-growing weeds! They just seem to be all leg at the moment too and keeping them clothed is becoming a challenge. I took my eldest out for clothes not even a month ago and she has grown out of those clothes already. In a month! Waaah!
Ellie loves … drawing, she is forever doodling little comic books and writing screenplays for her and her cousin to perform. She is also enjoying her music, learning how to play the guitar and playing a little Overwatch when she has the time. Her Year 8 ‘end of year’ exams are coming up in around 6 weeks, so she is feeling a bit anxious about those.
Jacob loves … football! Nothing has or every will change about that. His little weekly football club has been off for the Easter break so he’s been feeling a little lost. He is loving the lighter evenings, so he can stay outside and play with his friends more. He’s still frustratingly fussy with his food but he won’t starve!
Annabelle loves … everything and anything! She has been especially enjoying colouring in lately and her fine development skills are really improving. Just watching her try really hard to stay in the lines is adorable. I picked up some timers for her a few weeks ago and they have really helped to lengthen her attention span in preparation for Primary school in September.
