I realize it’s been ages since I’ve posted! I’m still here, just trying to find my groove after getting back to China. During the first couple of weeks the kids were in school and I just stayed busy trying to get back into a normal routine. Now they are home through the beginning of September, and I’m trying to find our new normal. Not much has gone as I expected!
I had a well-written schedule prepared for the summer. Scratch that! Nothing seems to fit into the schedule as I had planned.
I had our previous house helper whom we adore lined up to come in for 4 hours daily for the summer to help with some kitchen prep and cleaning so that I could focus more on the kids during vacation and less on housework. She unexpectedly had to return to her hometown for the summer.
For the last week, I’ve been revamping our plan, finding our new normal, and revamping some more. I’ve got some ideas for helping our summer days flow smoothly, but I’m sure that by next week, my plan will probably need more revamping. Is there anyone else who feels like things are constantly changing now that you have kids?
Just for fun, here are a couple of pictures from Vera’s kindergarten graduation. She has been at the same school with the same teachers and classmates for the last three years. If you click the last picture to enlarge it, you can see that some kids weren’t too happy about moving on to first grade!
Hopefully part of my revamped summer routine will include more time for blogging! If my posts are limited during the rest of the summer, please know that I’m enjoying my children and trying to keep them as my top priority while they are on summer break.
