I left these photos out of yesterday’s post because they weren’t really of anything. I changed my mind and decided to share them today because I think they are of everything! These photos sum up just how great our little trip was for our kids and I love them!
It is honestly – hand on heart – the best thing we have done for them as parents to date. They had freedom, time to just play, time to be with us and each other. No pressure. So much fresh air and walking, and looking, and learning. Time to talk with us.
These photos of the kids just ‘being kids’ at the campground in Normanton are a reminder to allow, and to make time for nothing. For more climbing trees, digging in dirt, making games out of sticks, being outside with no set agenda, reading books, talking, drawing. I’m not good at this. I love routine and structure, filling the days with plans. I need to pull back, to remember these photos and the moments they captured that are so important for our kids.
