Our lives are finally returning to normal after summer:

Greetings ladies and gentlemen of this amazing intraweb. Today I have to once again say, wow how time seems to fly these days. We have now gotten to Wednesday and the middle of the week while I am apparently still stuck on Mondays work-load, like this blog post as an example. The truth is that I had made plans for this post to go live on Monday night, but here I am still working on it. Reading through it and re-writing the text. For some reason, I am not able to become satisfied with this post, always something I feel like changing or re-wording. I bet most fellow bloggers out there understand my current struggle? Anyway, it wasn't my intention to spend half the post whining or ranting but had to get it out of the system in a way

For the past couple of months or so the students or kids have been on a summer break from school and it has been a blast, for the most part, do not misunderstand me. It has been great, but at the same time, I have to say that it feels great that things are falling into its place and back to how it should be. I know that I might come off as a bit of a bad dad in this post, but trust me, there is nothing in this world that I love more than my own kids. As mentioned it has been a blast having my son running like a tornado around me at home, when we are out and stuff like that. He is in many ways my best friend. At the same time, I do appreciate a great deal the security of everyday life.
Do not know what it is, but I really enjoy walking my son to school dropping him off and a few hours later make the journey back to pick him up. This kind of things kinda gives me the stability that I feel the need for. A reason to get up in the morning and stay focused during the day. At the same time, it actually gives me more time to focus on all the things that I need to do during the day and week. The fact that returning to normal routines is a blessing for me as a person and this is something that I have really noticed the past few days. I have once again gotten it confirmed that the best version of me is when I have fixed frameworks in my life. Do believe my girlfriend can confirm this as well.

Here comes a funny and strange detail when it comes to this situation. We as a family actually get more time to spend together when we have a lot on our plates than when we have all days to do whatever we want. Is this just us or is this something that other parents are experiencing in their daily life? Maybe its because we have to plan our days better or something like that? Anyway, as mentioned, finally things are returning to normal routines for our little family here in Peru and that means for some reason more quality time together as a family. To do things that a normal family should do together, as we did on Monday. We went to a brand new burger place here in Huaral and I finally succeeded in opening my son's eyes for my love of cheeseburgers.
We also had the same cheeseburger last night actually. I don't know what it is, but I love fast food and street food. On top of everything now we are talking about taking weekends trip, to Lima and other cities nearby. We are also talking about and planning a much longer trip later this year, to the city called Arequipa. That's the old capital city of Peru, but I guess this is a story for a different day and blog post. So I promise that there will be a return to this topic later on. I am actually planning to have it ready for Monday next week, so you know in advance about it and I have the pressure to actually follow my planned schedule. Anyway, our baby boy is back in school and has started in 3rd grade. Growing really fast, that's scary.

I kinda went off track here for a while, but I guess its side topics that kinda goes well with the main one, at least I hope it does. This Friday will be a busy one, first, we are moving to a different, but larger apartment in the building. Not to forget with a much better view as well. So when all our stuff has been moved to the new apartment the plan is that we are going to Lima, to celebrate the birthday of a friend of ours. That is if everything goes according to plans. Especially that part if I get all my work done and this one is the big if, but I would really love to go, not just for the party either. I feel the need to get out and do something else for a couple of days.
Actually, the positive side when it comes to my son's new school is that they do not have any homework. They do it during school hours, the kids stay longer, but the end result is that the kids do not have that stress at home and yes its a private school. Wouldnt wants it any other way really. Longer days, but better quality on education as well and in a country like Peru that is extremely important. The best part of the new school is that he is looking forward to every single day, even waking up before mom and dad. One cant argues with these facts, can I? Anyway, I am enjoying the change in his look on going to school in the morning, he really seems to love it.

Now that things are getting back to normal and my baby boy is back in school, I hope that this means I find more time to do the things that I need to do for my blog and channel. Just trust me on this one, I have like a ton of ideas for both platforms. Anyway, I guess its time for me to wrap this post up and get it up on the blog. Do remember to check me out on social media. I would appreciate it, especially if you decided to follow me there. So you can find me on Facebook (Beyond theHorizon), on Twitter (Beyond the Horizon), Instagram (Beyond our Horizon) and on Youtube (Beyond the Horizon 2.0). I do hope to see you there, I post stuff there that never gets even close to my blog and these sites get updated every single day!
