She headed back on Tuesday, and since then, we've been adjusting back to just being our little threesome again. With less than 6 weeks to go until D-day, we're making the most of these happy sunny hours before life gets a little crazy again. Amazing how such a little person can throw all your routines to the wind!
Anyway, here's our little week in a nutshell!
Blogs... I've finally started using"Bloglovin" and I'm loving having all my favourites gathered in one place. The only problem is, I'm therefore not doing so well on my book front, and with only a week to go until the next #atozautors update, I'm planning on getting my nose stuck back into a real book this week... eeek! Here were some of my favourite posts from this week...
Are You a Proper Mum? - Suzanne @ 3childrenandit
Nine Years - Carie @ Space for the Butterflies
Five - Lucy @ Dear Beautiful
One of the advantages of having Bestemor to stay is that little girls get to hang out with their little cousin a bit more than normal. I have loved watching them with this little man. They adore him... Heidi sometimes a little too much... but its exciting to see how sweet they are with him, and look forward to their own new little sibling arriving soon enough!
I've been listening to some Rend Collective this week. Just the perfect, background, chill out music. Not intrusive at all, but just makes you feel relaxed. I've been listening to their "Campfire" album which is really acoustic and chilled... been particularly loving this song...
Decisions. After all the heartache of last week and our School placement, we have decided not to appeal. We went on a bit of a journey over the weekend, and I now have complete peace about going ahead with our fourth choice... I'd even go so far as to say I'm a little bit excited about it! We've been talking openly with Ava about her new school (though obviously haven't drawn any attention to the fact that all her little friends are staying at her old school) and I'm thankful that she's young enough to not ask too many questions. She'll be fine... and we're trusting God with it all... he is faithful and he has a plan and a purpose in this, hard as it will be to leave all our lovely friends.
Oh! What does it matter what I wore?! I haven't seen my feet for weeks now, so really, as long as I'm dressed in something that covers me and my ever-expanding bump up, that's an achievement in itself. I won't deny I am SO excited about being able to get back into normal clothes again... I know it will be a while yet though!
I saw this little quote engraved into a park bench when we were out on one of our adventures with Bestemor last week and I just wholeheartedly agreed with it... except that I would change the word "and" to "make"... don't you think blue skies just DO make happy days? Whatever is going on in life... the joys, the heartaches, the frustrations... blue skies do just somehow make it all much more bearable.
Who's with me?!
