At this time of year I also like to take some photos as an alternative to the back to school photos. My facebook memories have shown me previous photos this week and it amazing how quickly they change year on year. This weekend we visited Nostell Priory and I got a lovely picture of Seb and Alex for our 2017 not back to school photo.
This time of year also feels a bit strange, going to school is the norm and it does feel strange at times that we aren't doing that. I think when it feels like everyone is going in one direction and you are taking the opposite route it is natural to question yourself and the decisions you make for your children.
But then I think of Seb and how this year at school he would be facing SATs, and how Alex seems so very young to be in full time education and I am pleased that we have taken this route. I am not anti school in any way, it is just not what i want for my children right now.
Happy Not Back to School!
