This week our word of the week is
Ethan has been on half term and we have had days at home and errands to run.
Ethan has found the break from school hard to adjust too. I think that he is kept so busy at school that suddenly doing nothing hits him hard. He is used to weekends as it is part of the routine but add extra days onto that and he climbs the walls.
To cope with this Ethan has been taking control of the Sky Box and it has been a battle to watch just one channel. He can now say most of the channels on the first page of the guide and keeps asking for Sky Atlantic. Sky Atlantic does not show programmes I want him to watch but as soon as our back is turned Sky Atlantic is back on the TV. Ethan has even gone off of watching the Children’s TV channels but Baby TV is sometimes a winner.
Getting us out and about has kept us all sane but the weather stopped some of our bigger planes this week. We did go to the zoo yesterday but got there early and left before lunch time as it starts to get too busy for Ethan to enjoy his time there.
We have enjoyed some Halloween activities. We carved pumpkins and the children dressed up for the trip to the zoo yesterday. I think I might look into painting pumpkins next year so that the children can get more involved.
It has been a good half term, Ethan did need some rest as he started to protest about going to school last week. There have been some hard moments but the balance of this holiday was so much better than the summer holidays. I suppose it is easier to fill one week than eight!
