On the walk back from school the other day the wee girl collected leaves. Well, she pointed at the ones she wanted and I collected them for her (she was in the stroller!). Woe betide me if I picked up the wrong one…!
We went to the boys’ school Pumpkin Festival today. It’s one the most popular school events with games, bouncy house, crafts, bake sale and pony rides… The wee girl wanted a pony ride, on the white pony. We queued, for a long time. She got on the pony and said I don’t like this. Daddy had a quiet word. She lasted one lap!
I’m joining in with Charly’s Black and White Photography Project over on PODCast.
Taking advantage of a beautifully sunny Sunday afternoon, we headed to Breakheart Reservation with the boys bikes. The boys wanted to show me a loop around the reservation that I hadn’t fully walked before.
In my usual (dis)organised fashion, Thursday evening has rolled around again and I am finally sitting down to write my post for The Prompt. Having had a challenging afternoon with the children I will admit to not feeling particularly joyful. But, something I am learning (slowly) is to see the joy, even when it is heavily obscured by rubbish.
This week can only be about holes. I have holes all over my house!
Our very first project in the garden was to get rid of the old (dangerous!) play structure and to install a new fence. We managed to do this at the end of the summer, and now have a safe play space for the kids to play in.
