Unusually it actually feels like ages since I wrote my last Siblings post . . . so much so that I actually had to check that I hadn’t missed July out completely!
We’ve done so much since I published my last Sibling update – celebrated both Ben and Chloe’s birthday, multiple camping trips, a road trip to Dover – it feel like we haven’t stopped if I’m honest.
As is to be expected for a long summer holiday, it’s fair to say there has been plenty of bickering and squabbling. Mostly about inane rubbish like what to watch on TV, what to see at the cinema or whether to have an ice cream or a hot chocolate for a treat. I’m quite sure that sometimes when I give them a choice about something, one of them purposely plumps for the opposite option to their sibling just to make life difficult. It makes me not want to give them a choice about anything half the time!
In fairness they’re all getting on really well – they’ve been great company for each other whilst we’ve been out on our various adventures, always looking out for each other and playing together. The difficulty comes when we spend too much time at home and everyone loses their patience!
By the time I write my next Siblings post, all three children will be in school together for the first time – Chloe and Amy at the Infant site and Ben over at the Juniors. Although Ben and and Amy are relatively close together in age, they won’t actually attend primary school together as by the time Amy moves to the Juniors, Ben will have gone to Secondary – which makes me feel a bit sad if I’m honest!
This month’s photos were taken on our trip to Dover – we struck lucky with the weather and managed a day at the seaside!
