This week sees the return to school for all the kids as they start the second semester of the school year. For as much as I love the first day of holidays and the freedom that it brings I love the return to school and the return to order and routine.
This is what I see each morning as I stand by the front door waiting to start the school run. Gareth sitting tying his shoe laces, slow, patient, unrushed no matter what time the clock says!
Luckily we have been on time so far this week so I have been able to stand, relaxed as he slowly but surely ties those laces and even had time to catch it on my phone!
