Thankful Tuesdays: Getting our rhythm back

It has been almost 6 months since we moved back from Germany. After half a year of changes, of moving from this place to that, of packing and unpacking boxes, I'm glad to say that we've more or less settled back into a regular rhythm of things. Most of our books have been sorted out, all our big boxes of stuff have been cleared out, and we've started dabbling in home-learning activities other than the usual reading and mucking around with paints and crayons. 

It's taken ages for us to get to this point (especially with my pregnancy exhaustion and hubby's crazier work schedule), and it involved lots of baby steps. The study still looks as if a Popular bookshop exploded in there, but at least all the other rooms are in some semblance of order, and at least now we can access our stuff without having to dig through five piles of things!

So today, after a long, tiring but fruitful day (which involved a gynae visit, lunch out together, grocery shopping, a homeschool sharing session and a trip to Ikea), I'm just thankful that we've settled in and have that familiar rhythm going. Both boys seem to thrive on routines, and I like things in a set order, and I know all this is going to change when baby #3 arrives. But meanwhile, at least what we have works for us!
