How ds1 helped and amused himself during the 1st week of June hols:
He helped entertain his sister:
I could do a lot on my own with ds1 around. An older sibling really helps. Dd can laugh and smile and be very entertained for a long period of time with ds1. So happy for that. Dd is very blessed. As she grows, she will have 2 older brothers taking care of her and protecting her and loving her.
See how the boys' bed is being overrun with stuff to make her happy?
ds1 borrowed many library books to read during the hols and suddenly I saw this:
I had to laugh. It was pretty funny. He surrounded her with his books and they could stand on the exersaucer on their own and he'd spin her around to let her read different books. He would tell her what's in the book too.
And then the darling was a great assistant in the kitchen as well, helping me to peel all the carrots and potatoes I needed for a soup.
It's nice to have holidays and it's nice to have school. Just make sure the duration of each is not too long. Ds1 doesn't have any homework, so he played very hard the whole of June. And it's just right, by the end of June he was missing school so much and raring to go back.
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
