Bringing up tiny explorers





I love that no matter what the weather, if there is a wood or field near by, my girls will want to be in them.
I love that Elle spun around in a circle yesterday, in a new wood and said "mama, it's like we are in another world!"
I love the way that on the way to school, we talk about pollination or how bees make honey or why animals hibernate.
I love the way that Mia makes friends with every squirrel she see's.
I love the way that when we step into a wood, it feels like it is just the three of us and that no one else exists.
I love the way that Elle picks flowers and leaves up and asks me to keep them safe so she can stick them. into her journal.
I love that i am bringing up two tiny explorers who i know will care about the world and the animals and i know that we will never stop having adventures together.

  25. Stunning photographs as always. It is wonderful that your children have an appreciation of the special nature of woodland at such a young age. I always feel so much more peaceful in woodland, I love the smell, the sounds, the feel of the ground, the opportunities to climb, explore, rummage and just breathe. I really enjoyed this post, thank you x
