Today felt so much like summer! We awoke to wonderful sunshine and Elle asked if we could go for a picnic. We packed up a little basket of food and headed off to the meadows. It was just so nice to get out with them both and sit under the acorn tree and have that time. Since Elle has started school, i have been really really missing her. Our days, before she started school, were all about adventures and going out everyday exploring or crafting or dancing around like loons in the front room. It has been hard as it feels like my little side kick has been taken away and today just made me realise even more how much i miss her.
It is great to have that one to one with Mia but it doesn't make the missing any easier. I can tell that Mia also misses her because when Elle is around, she lights up! I am taking Mia out for a little picnic this week, just the two of us. I don't want to waste these days and the time with her and all of the things i have taught Elle about nature, i now want to share with her. She has become so curious about her surroundings and i am excited to teach her.
