Finding Our Way Back To Routine

back to school, school kids, kindergarten, grade 3

Things have been a wee bit quiet around here lately.  The boys are just finishing up their second week of school, and things have been going very well. It's a bit of an adjustment for them, as we aren't allowing electronic devices (ipads, television, DS) during the week.  We have been doing a lot of reading, and lots of board games/card games/dice games to pass the time.  They have also been spending quite a bit of time outside before school (Mr. J practicing his skateboarding and Mr. K getting into mischief with dirt)

While they are away all day, I have been slowly trying to get my house back after the kids were home all summer.  It's not coming along quite as quickly as I had hoped, but it IS starting to get there.

I am hoping that I will be able to get back to a little more regular blog routine next week - it's amazing how much time it takes to put things back in order after 2.5 months of no routine.

I hope that all of your children are settling into the new school year, and things are going well for you!


  1. It's not an easy adjustment from being carefree to the regulated school day. I loved school but did find it tough getting up so early in the morning for school after the summer holidays.

  2. Hope you find your routine again soon!

  3. we've just settled in with our routine again....between a 17 yr old, and a 3 yr old, not too bad that it took almost a week and a half lol

  4. Its always a challenging time of year. My grandkids seem to have settled in now. Lets hope we all have a great school year!

    1. That's wonderful to hear! My kids have adjusted very well now, it seems to be me that is having trouble falling into the routine

  5. mine havent started school yet but my oldest starts next year and then we will be doing some major adjusting

  6. I always loved it when everything fell back into routine, sure makes everything easier!!
