Summer Holidays Favourites | Sydney Children’s Photographer

While school only started last week, summer holidays seem ages away already.  Those lazy days of sleep ins, pajama days, pool time, and movie nights didn’t last long enough.  I love love love school hols – the lack of routine, nowhere to be at any specific time, no rushing, no saying “hurry up!”…. I could go on and on.  This year I took a break from working and spent the entire time with the kids. While there were a few days that were filled with more tears than joy, most days felt like a total luxury.  I know that school holidays when I am enough to fill both children’s days are very short lived.  My three year old is only going to want to snuggle and watch movies in bed for just so long while my six year old is just on the cusp of being bored with lazy days spend in the neighbourhood. Soon there will be requests for playdates, chauffeuring to the movies, the shops and the beach, too much screen time, and not enough family time.  This year I soaked up the little cocoon we had during the week just the three of us.  The days past far too fast for all of us I think.  We certainly didn’t accomplish everything we wanted to do.  There is always that tension between wanting to do nothing and wanting to do everything – and of course never enough time for both.  School started back exactly a week ago. Three days in and my six year old is already counting down til Easter.   And so am I. So for February’s 4 on 4, here are four of my favourites from January.
