Mama Life || After 6 Weeks Of 'Home School'

We had a nice week this week, a little school work, some exploring outside and a lot of relaxing time because we all just felt like we needed it emotionally and physically. Alf's getting stuck into learning about ancient Greece and Soph has lots of smaller projects to get on with. They are both being so so great, I can't imagine what this would be like if they weren't, but they are so happy, they hardly ever argue and although they don't always feel like it, they do get stuck into their work so at least I don't feel they are falling behind with school which is a relief.

I'm trying to keep the kids busy, active and happy but also trying to keep them in touch with family and friends. They've both had some video chats and Sophie loves chatting with her cousin after school hours as she's a teen with a lot of work to crack on with. Alfie always has a friend or two on Fortnite, so as much as I'd prefer him to do other stuff, he's happy chatting to his friends and playing the game and happy is what's best right now. 

We've headed out for a few walks locally and I'm trying to keep busy taking photographs and getting on with art work. I am struggling a little mentally but I am trying to stay on top of it. It's a mixture of anxiety around getting sick and not having a quiet space to retreat to, it's kind of lovely at the moment but hard at times.

How has your week been?
