Family Life

Week 1 is Done!

First Day of School

Hooray for Friday!!!!

We survived our week one of school this year-  just about anyway- but I still feel like celebrating.

One week down how many until midterm?

I had the very best of intentions to hit the ground running and all that.

Tuesday we all had a lovely hot breakfast together as a family.  It was a complete chilled out nourishing breakfast before first day photos & piling into the car.  After school we skipped into the door and I was delighted to be back into the routine.  With the start of school, life would once again become  normal bed times and well balanced meals!

Well balanced prepared meals that were still rock solid frozen in the freezer.  OOOPS!

Day 1 of a new school year and we were already eating takeaway.

By Wednesday morning a hot family breakfast was a dream and with a birthday in the house there was plenty of birthday cake and sugar consumed that evening….but we were reasonably close to bedtime and hadn’t exactly eaten takeaway so lets consider that a win.

By Thursday I figured out we had the completely wrong religion book and was now on my third attempt to source the correct one. Thank god Friday was tracksuit day because who has time for laundry.

And here we are on Friday with the sun shining, another religion book on its way and the weekend stretched out before us.  AND I have finally managed to put a home cooked, ‘balanced’ meal on the table.


So week one wasn’t our best start.

No one starved at least.

Next week I’ll arm myself with a meal plan and fire up the slow cooker.

8 weeks till midterm.
