This months photos just had to be taken in the snow. It has been the backdrop to our days since the first blizzard at the end of January!
The snow has allowed me to watch the three playing together more; whether that’s been building snowmen, digging snow caves, battling un-shovelled pavements or enjoying snow ice-cream.
Whatever the activity, the boys have taken care of their little sister and helped her navigate the really deep snow.
In turn, she has watched them so closely, insisting on copying everything that they do! Even when really, she’s just too little. Watching her attempt to wade after her brothers has made me smile, a lot.
There has been plenty of laughter from the three as they have enjoyed the ridiculous amount of snow we’ve had (even as their mother has despaired of it ever ending)!
I took this months photos after we’d been for a walk. We’d been trapped in the house by a snowstorm for two days (again) and we all really needed to get outside. The kids were so happy to be out and it was wonderful to see their moods lift. I asked them to stand nicely to get a couple of decent shots, which almost worked… Then just left them too it, while I kept snapping.
When I looked at the photos that evening I actually laughed out loud at the expressions on their faces :)
With three years between each of them, they often want to play very different games, but when they find something that they all love it is wonderful to watch.
