Half Term


We can't complain a bit about our half term break. While we had rain, we also had sun, so we got out plenty over the few days Jack was off. And that's just about our favourite thing to do. I'm wondering if Noah is going to be the black sheep of our family. He doesn't cope well with the cold, and doesn't seem to enjoy being outdoors as much as the rest of us. There's always one, eh?


We met up with family one day last week and went for a soggy, but sunny walk through the forest. We also got a little bit lost after I was too busy chatting to notice we were going down an unknown path, but we made it back in one piece! All the kids enjoyed each others company.





We absolutely live in our wellies at this time of year. We have to. Everything is soggy and muddy and squelchy. Jack and Noah both love their wellies. Noah stomps about the house in his, teaming it with his baby grow. Very cute.




I can't believe Jack is already half way through his first year of P1! He's doing brilliantly. The progress he had made in such a short space of time is unreal. They're just little sponges at this age, aren't they?

















Isn't it lovely to see the daffodils and snowdrops beginning to peep out from the ground? And wake up to the sun beaming through the bedroom window? I'm enjoying every minute of the beginning of spring. I hope you and your family enjoyed the half term break. It won't be long until the easter holidays now!

  1. You are right they do soak in knowledge like a sponge, I think it is because they are young with fresh minds and open to the world. The woods are wonderful with all the moss!!

    Thanks for sharing on #OMHGWW this week!

  7. WOW!! Greetings from Dubai!! What lovely moments you have captured.I envy you that your children are so close to nature and this took me back to my childhood days. Here in Dubai we hardly get to see greenery and it's always a treat to be back home in India amongst the greens. Thoroughly enjoyed your post. Will be back soon. Have a great Thursday!

  15. You've captured such beautiful family moments together, it's always lovely seeing Jack and Noah explore together. Jack looks like he was having a great time exploring the woods and making swords out of sticks. You know you've had a good walk when you get lost because you're enjoying each others company, but I bet it was fab to explore! Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

  20. I am with you on loving the snowdrops and sun beaming in the window. I am so excited for spring. The promise of green trees, longer days, new life and sunshine. I'm glad you had such a lovely half-term. I love getting lost. I think it's a true sign of a great day out. Discovering new places and really enjoying being outdoors.

  25. Beautiful photos of your boys! We live in our wellies at this time of year too, the boys have 2 pairs each as they often splash too much and get water in the wellies, so need another pair while the first is drying. I hope Noah gets a bit happier being outdoors over time. Thanks so much for linking your lovely photos up to #Whatevertheweather :) x
