This weeks pictures chosen to represent and celebrate my childrens childhood were taken at our local National Trust property. We try and use our membership as much as we can and are very lucky to have a few really great properties with some fantastic grounds for the kids nearby.
Living Arrows 40/52
This girl is at a stage where she just amazes me every single day! Usually shy to try anything new, recently she has been jumping in with both feet to try out new things. This week’s picture is a little blurry as she was moving so quickly but it was chosen as not only did she want to try the rope swing, she was adamant that she wanted to do it on her own. A big first for her. Faster / higher…..she had a great time and I couldn’t be more proud of her.
This boy is going to send me grey! He’s such an explorer and likes to jump right in with both feet, however it seems it always has to be at 100mph. We were out for a little over 3 hours and in that time he took 3 big knocks and fell over countless times. He therefore came home with the addition of 2 scrapes and a rather nasty looking bruise – all on his forehead. He did however get mistaken for a girl countless times thanks to his rather fetching suit inherited from his sister. What can I say? At least he was dry!
