back to routine

And well, vacation is over. We spent almost a whole month in Poland. Kids had lots of fun. I had lots of mundane work - around the house and with the kids. Not enough time to rest, not even five minutes for reading (I didn't open a book I took with me, there was no chance for that), but well, sometimes vacation means selfgiving for a better future for your kids. Or does it go like that at all? Anyway, we are back in Helsinki and back to our routine. Today it was Wanda's first day in her new kindergarten. I promised her to stay with her and play and so I did it. Tomek was enjoying the place, Wanda wasn't sure she wants to be there, but after some time she seemed to be fine. Her teachers were so happy to see her again (they worked in her previous day care) and it gave Wanda some confidence. But there were no friends... and that was so sad. She was sad and I knew that it is because she doesn't know anyone and the place is new. And I was sad too having in mind last year with the four best friends, always together, always having fun, always supporting each other. From the bunch of four one in already living abroad, one joined another day care and one will be with Wanda, but he is still on holiday. The times they are a-changin...
