It is certainly not a secret that i am a country girl. I have such huge dreams of being in the countryside, bringing up my family surrounded by meadows and forests. Even though Elle has always lived in the town, she loves nature and completely adores flowers and finding out all about the different types. Both girls love being by the water and going for walks and climbing trees. It would be a complete dream for me to move us out to the countryside. I love going to farmers markets and going for drives around villages, looking at cottages and falling in love with every single one.
When i pass my driving test, i will be driving around the countryside constantly and finding new places to explore. I grew up in the countryside and spent a lot of my time in the fields and sitting in trees by the river. I want the girls to have the same experiences and appreciate nature.
Next week, i am taking the girls out along the canal to look at all the wild flowers growing. We will take a little field journal with us to take clippings and write about our finds. I think it is so important for little ones to grow up learning about nature and our surroundings and i am just lucky that both my girls seem to be so passionate about it already!
