Bitter Sweet Back to School

Bitter Sweet Back to School

For some, it is the most wonderful time of the year. For others, it means that another summer has just flown by and it's back to regular routines. This year, I experienced a little bit of both. My family and I had a very busy summer and it seemed to fly by in the blink of an eye. Yet the last two weeks it was almost as if my children flicked a switch and their behaviour and frequent boredom signalled to me that they were ready to head back to school. It felt strange to say that because my son hadn't even been to school yet, but they definitely needed something different than the freedom of summer routines.
