The end of August is here already, we nearly at the beginning of some big changes for our little family but before that we have Lucas’ birthday. He turned four on Sunday and on the big day we took a few Me & Mine photos in front of the giant rainbow cake. I love how Bear is reaching for it in some of the photos, a great way to keep him on my knee! It still frightens me that he has just turned four and he will be flung into the world of full-time education; now his birthday is out the way it is looming and more than anything I am just going to miss him. I will miss him terribly, it seems a long day when he is in school but I’m trying to focus on spending more time with his brothers – let’s fact it, it isn’t like I’ll be sat at home with nothing to do.
We have had a busy month and caught up with a lot of friends and family, we’ve had some truly amazing days together. One of my favourite days was when we had one of Lucas’ school friends over for a playdate, it was so funny to watch them play and chatter together and we wondered if they would still be friends in years to come (I’m sure they will). We spent a lovely family day together in Liverpool and went on the Mersey Ferry and with on those rainy days we have had cosy days in. The boys have grown closer than ever over these holidays, the squabbles are kicking in a little more now but I’ve been surprised how good they’ve been together over the time off. I’ve been videoing some of our family moments, they aren’t wildly exciting but they are special memories for us to look back on.
Today was our last day together before Daddy goes back to work so we went out for breakfast as our last treat of the summer. We came back home and I took the twins for a walk so Lucas could play with some of his birthday presents in peace. I’m sad to say goodbye to this summer, it is the end of a time we can’t ever get back and the start of something that I wish I could say I was ready for. I hope we’ve made the most of it and made some good memories to keep us going until those next school holidays.
