End

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:


because it is finally the end of the summer term and glad for a break because both I and the boys are shattered. why is it at the end of the year I just feel washed out.

Hubby has benefits sorting out camping as we are doing it again this year. I struggle with spending days away with my autism so we are going to have to small holidays in the UK, making it more manageable for me and my health. I am blessed that my eldest is so understanding with me and how I am.

I can not believe also that now both my boys will be going to school in September, eek! Also means having to pay for two sets of school shoes, joy!

Husband has been helping at my son’s beaver class and he is now an official a leader. I predicted he would by the end of the year, I love it when. I am right haha

Why museums are important

Hey readers,

Today I want to talk about why museums are important. Well first of they tend to be free which means it is gives opportunity for everyone to access and explore history and culture with the world around us. It doesn’t matter on your background, race. gender or financial the museum is open for all to access if they so desire.

Looking at the display

It is a great place to take the children especially, like myself who does not have loads of money. It is a good way to education a child and to learn through visual ideas and artifacts found in the museum.

They offer free events which is a great way to connect within the community. It allows you to appreciate the different types of expression people can do. It allows you to explore freely with like minded people who also enjoy art.

Children enjoy learning about history and how different peoples lives are or how they used to live. It is an alternative way to learn and it allows a fun way to communicate with children and grasp the complexates of people.

Often the free activities available at the museum can help inspire children to express themselves and get creative. It is a safe place where they won’t be judged and encouraged to do as they wish and with what t hey feel comfortable doing. Children can learn different forms of art and can get excited with the information they have learnt meaning they can expand further when at home or school.

It is a Breathe of fresh air to go to place like the museum that it is not just based on modern information but alternative ideas of thinking.

Museums are a place to remember the past and celebrate the achievements of others have done and created history for it.

Thinking about the important of the museum for a society then there are financial benefits of having museums in places because they can help boast the economy. They provide reasons for other people that don’t live in the area to come and explore the museum.

Also, if you have some money you can be tempted to check out the local shop or go for something to eat and drink therefore putting.money back into the economy. Therefore keeping the attraction open for all to explore and have the opportunity.

Do you enjoy going to a museum?

Summer

Hey, readers,

my word of the week is:


because it is now officially summer and boy does the weather let us know. This weekend has been busy with clubs and kids parties, my eldest has been super exhausted during the week due to hectic weekend shenanigans.

DS1 also got to see his school artwork on display in a local public venue last night and he was super chuffed that he got his work chosen for it. Not just that but this week at beavers he got his gardening badge, which he loves because the design on it involves a watering can.

DS2 has been enjoying nursery with seeing the dentist giving our information and an exciting visit from the fire engine. He has been so chatty now to everyone so it is lovely to see his confidence grow. He will soon be leaving nursery next month and start school in September with his brother.

Reasons to love summer

Hey readers,

It is officially summer time now so let’s get celebrating this hot season. Here are my reasons why I love summer.

Washing.

Washing Line

As a parent, nothing excites me more than to put out the washing on the line, to have that fresh feel when you bring it down. Nothing gets me more excited than getting four loads of washing washed, hung, got down and put away in a day – that my friends are some achievement.  Not to mention the buzz you get of feeling all domesticated and winning at life.

Al Fresco.

Picnic,picnic,eating,group

Eating outdoors is ace when you have  children because you can leave all the crumbs behind and don’t have to hoover. It is fresh air and being around nature no better place to be when eating. I finding having picnics less stressful then eating at home, maybe kids too and they seem much more relaxed with this option to the alternative eating at a table.

Outdoors.

Sunset in UP

With the above point about picnics this can be incorporated with going outside, as I have young children it tends to be the park, which that it was my children every really want to be honest. They can burn off steam while I can get a moment to read some of my book, it is a winner and everyone is happy. It is also cheap day out, the kids get sleepy and everyone is happy to come home and chill out. Going out side mess less bickering and the boys get on better without each other wanting to pull each other hair out.

Schools out.

Family at the lake 

During the summer period of late July and August the boys have broken up from school and nursery. It  feels much more relaxed because there is a unstructured schedule but that sense of urgency to do homework or get out of the door early in the morning. It allows my eldest to be a bit calm as he hasn’t got the added anxiety of spelling tests (this might not affect every child, however my eldest is autistic and performance activities effects him greatly). If we have a day out somewhere on a Sunday or during the week we can take our time without having the thoughts in the back of the mind that we need to get home so the boys don’t get tired the next day for school or nursery.

Holiday away from home.

Of course holidays tend now to occur during the summer holiday as it is the best time to break up the six weeks of summer holidays. Getting away from it all, exploring new surroundings and taking trips to the beach all make up create memories for the family.

Food.

With summer normally means warmer weather, therefore the choices swing to lighter meals and anything that cool to help get through the heat. I spend a fair amount of money stocking up on the ice creams and lollies, of course a magnum or tip top are signs that summer has officially arrived.

What do you enjoy about summer?
