Saturday was the official start of the half term break and it was such a gorgeous day. The sun was so warm, so beautiful and it was beating through my bedroom window from the moment that we opened our eyes.
We spent the morning pottering around the house, being a little lazy and giving in the the freedom of the holiday. The freedom of the weekend. I managed to drink a hot peppermint tea while I talked to my little favourites. For ages.
It always surprises me in the most pleasant way how they see life, how when I give them a little time they will talk to me for hours, how they always want me to be included in everything that they want to do, play and make and how openly they love the family that they were born in to. How happy they are.
We ate lunch together, at the table where we talked some more, laughed and talked about our plan for the afternoon.
My sister and her beautiful little family were heading to us in the early afternoon to take the children out on their scooters and bikes. We were going to hit the park on such a beautiful day. It was too much of a perfect autumnal day to waste it.
There was so much excitement about our mini adventure. Noah watched the clock and Ellenah asked me constantly if it was time to leave.
Finally we were on our way and the kids zoomed off in front.
They enjoyed the park. They played on the outside gym, the zip wire and the assault course. We collected leaves and jumped around in them. It was just so nice to see the children wearing rosy cheeks, big smiles and laughs.
Seeing them all happy makes me happy.
Making memories with them, even the simple ones at the park, makes me feel lighter, content and like I am a part of something so incredible.
Being with them shows me life through their eyes. The beauty of it.
I’m so excited about the rest of half term and all of the joy, love and memories that will come with it. What are y’all planning on doing with your little loves?
