Living Arrows Week Eight {2015}

February 23, 2015

Did I miss half term?

It’s back to school already and I really don’t feel like we have had any time away from the uniform, school bags and packed lunch cycle.

The school run is ahead of me once again and I wish that we could just have a few more days at home. A few more days of being a family without school and work forcing us to be apart.

Time as a family is so precious and I’m beginning to feel that it goes all too quickly – anyone know where the pause button for life is?

    I’ve no idea but if you find that pause button you have to promise to tell!!

    You are not wrong. Even though I only hvae one of mine at school now I still feel that half term went in a flash. Thank Goodness Easter is early this year and we dont have long to wait for the next holidays!

    I just did my school run to pick my son up from school and he is a bit on a bad mood. But I am so happy to see him. I miss him today.

    Like you I wish I have more time with my son. He is just 4-1/2. But what I love about him being in school is how he run to me everytime he goes out of his classroom. His excitement to see me is just priceless. #livingarrows

    Aghh So lovely. I bet it goes so fast when they are in school. Buba starts September and I am nervous how fast life will pick up if it isn’t fast enough already. Lovely post. #livingarrows

    Love the post, and the photo. Holidays always go too quickly don’t they. I wish we could switch to 4 working days and 3 day weekends to give us all a bit more family time. xx

    We don’t even really do half term because N’s still in nursery, but it still felt like it whizzed by. Nice to get a family shot in – they look like they’re on a mission #livingarrows

    Love this photo, yes our half term flashed before our eyes too. Our eldest was in a pantomime and with rehearsals and going to watch performances it just didn’t seem like half-term, but here we are back in the swing of school runs as you said. This is a great capture #livingarrows

    I sometimes hang back to watch the same scene of my little family all holding hands. Thanks for linking up with Living Arrows x
