Welcome to A Week with us….A weekly update and insight to a week in the lives of our family of 7.
This week has flown over, I honestly don’t know where the time has gone!
This week Cameron had a taster day visit at a local sixth form college to check it out and give some of the courses a try.
I really can not believe that Cameron is going into Year 11 in September. Where do the years go?!
Harvey took on a role of responsibility this week by being asked by his school to attend and help out at an open evening for the new Year 7’s parents. I am really proud of him, as Harvey does struggle academically, but he has a heart of gold and great people skills.
McKenzie went on a school trip to a local nature reserve. Well, this has totally and utterly knocked him for six. You see, McKenzie doesn’t deal with change very well. Especially unexpected change. But we did prepare him for this visit, but obviously not enough. My poor boy has been an emotional wreck. He’s really struggled with his sleep and mood regulation. He has been doing so well.

This week was McKenzie and Caelan school were celebrating International week. On Friday, each year group was asked to dress as a certain country. Mckenzies year group had France. Caelan’s year group had Italy.
Bad Mum here didn’t have time to make a costume. So my boys settled for their countries flag colours in their clothes.
This weekend has been really relaxed, but with a little twist of excitement.
I had my hair done.
Then on Sunday we had an insight into a celebrity lifestyle. We had a family photo shoot for a National newspaper. All week we have been working with writers, stylists and hair and make up artists!
I must admit, it has been very bizarre, but it was fantastic to be pampered.
We all really enjoyed the experience. My boys got a little bored throughout the shoot. Now I know why they say never work with animals or children.
We can’t wait to see the photos and published article!
Here are some photos from this week…
Thanks for reading and I hope you come back for another WEEK WITH US
