Week in Pictures #27

The summer holidays are officially done with for another year.

Yep as of today Lily is back at school and i'm not entirely sure how I feel about it.

On the one hand I'm happy for her because she adores school and she's been asking to go back pretty much since the holidays started (yes she is a giant nerd bless her). I have to say I'm seriously looking forward to the routine that being back to school brings and I'm looking forward to the quiet cosier at home days with Archer as the weather gets colder and the sky gets darker increasingly early. I probably have another 6 months max before Archer starts nursery so I want the make the most of our one on one time.

However I'm going to miss having Lils presence around the house 24/7 for the past six weeks . There's no denying the house is much quieter when she's not here but I just love having her around. She chatters 24/7, she's so much fun and is forever making us laugh with all her impressions and dance moves and jokes that make zero sense. And she's been so so helpful with Archer over the past 6 weeks - I think he's going to struggle the most with her going back to school out of all of us! 

Selfishly its been so relaxing not to have to get up and dressed at arse o clock in morning to get to school for 8.45. And its been lovely not to wake up Arch from his naps before he's ready in order to go and get her again. However she's soo ready to go back. So excited and eager to learn and missing all her friends that I couldn't find it in me to keep her at home even if I wanted to!

You go spread your wings baby girl.
So on to the last week and a half of the holidays. 

The weather has blessed us with a mixture of sunny, rainy and windy days. It's been a bit all over the place if I'm honest. We spent a lot of last week indoors thanks to the rainier weather but we did venture out at one point to go acorn collecting - fully in the autumn spirit (see pictures below) and got caught in the middle of a giant thunderstorm about ten minutes in which Archer loved and Lily hated.

The weather improved over the latter half of the week and so the rains absence made way for lots of park trips and time spent in the garden with bubbles. (Bubbles still remain the single most played with toy in our garden - and that's including the giant expensive climbing frame!!)

On Saturday we decided to use the National Trust day pass I won in a competition over on Instagram and headed off to Fountains Abbey - somewhere we've not been before.
It was good, really good, and the playground was AMAZING but I don't think we were quite prepared for how big it was. I'm talking acres and acres between each attraction and as it was a boiling hot day we didn't venture much further than the adventure play if I'm honest. But a good day was had by us all - and how cute are the photos of the kids with their baby cousin Wilf??

Summer holidays, you've been a blast.
