As I reflect back on last week not a lot of study was achieved (regardless of my intentional focus on study!).  But we had a great family week.  I encouraged my older children, who are working so hard at being diligent with their studies, that family still comes first and the things we did this week were important to family relationships.  There’s always next week for study!

We had a great Monday, achieving all the lessons I had planned.  Then Tuesday Daniel went to Darwin so our day was focused on getting packed up and catching the plane.   Wednesday, with Daniel away, was about doing stuff around the house.  Thursday was about picking Daniel and Pete up and listening to their stories.  Friday – I have no idea what we did Friday morning but we headed off for a river cruise in the afternoon.  Saturday was about catching up around the house, cooking for church morning tea and watching a dvd over dinner.  Sunday was church and downtime in the afternoon.

Then… at 4.50 I decided to take the kids to the movies to see Ice Age III.  We had 1/2 hour to get ourselves ready, including food, and out the door!  This is something I would never have attempted when the kids were little but as they get older things change.  They all had a job to do to get the family ready – chairs, dinner, waterbottles, jumpers….

The movies here in our town is an outdoor drive in theater.  Though our car isn’t really that comfy for lounging in so we parked outside and just took our chairs in.  Sitting outside, under the stars (incredible stars too last night) was very relaxing.  The kids ate their dinner (a quick fix of minute noodles I cooked at home) while we waited for dark to settle and the movie to begin.

I am so glad we went.  It was a fun time – and as one of the kids said when we got home – "Now, that wasn’t so hard was it?"  So true.  It wasn’t that hard (and yet I’ve put it off over the years) so maybe we’ll go to the movies more in times to come… well, whenever there is a movie worth seeing that is.
