Oh August, the boys have loved you so much! What a wonderful time they had in Italy. 25 days in total and I got to share seven there with them. I was not ready to come back home at all! I'm always a bit sad at the beginning of September because it means that summer is coming to an end but there are lots of lovely things to remember. We spent a lot of time apart this month but I'm happy the boys have had such a great experience and their Italian has definitely improved.
June was a really lovely month for us. I felt like we spent a lot of time outside and it has been good for the boys to be out in the garden instead of being on the tablet or watching tv. We've eaten outside, read books outside, played tennis, badminton and frisbee. I think the highlight of the month for me was Ethan losing his first tooth. It felt like such a milestone and he already has the big one growing behind.
I think I'm still in denial that May and half-term are actually over, more than a week down the line I still pining over our sunny days spent mostly outside, not worrying about school, work and stressing over bedtime.

The highlight of February had to be Half-term, just that little break from routine and the non-stop hamster wheel of school, work, bed repeat.
January has been so busy for us what with back to school routine, me teaching over two weekends and one evening, Matteo having his tonsils out and the boys having a great social life and going to two birthday parties. I've craved time at home in the warmth and comfort food.
What a busy month December was. It was packed with stuff and just went so fast. I am loving putting together these monthly posts and videos looking back at the past month. I hope the boys will look back on them in years to come especially this one when Christmas was so magical.
I've loved putting this month's video together and I have to say it's my favourite video so far with some wonderful memories to look back on like going to Clip 'n Climb for the first time and singing Happy Birthday, plus I got some everyday moments documented like bedtime stories and getting ready for football. We finished off the month with some Christmas magic, twinkly lights and meeting Santa. Click below to watch:
