Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.
We have such a nice routine now that the weather is warmer. As soon as the children get home from school they get changed, grab a snack and head out into the garden – which is pretty much where they stay until dinner.
The love to be outside, playing in the garden and just having simple fun. They have a climbing frame that is often a ship, a castle or the biggest hill. It’s whatever their imaginations make it but it’s also somewhere to climb, swing and slide.
But they also love to run up and down the grass, playing games and trying to catch each other, blowing bubbles or kicking a ball around. Often they’ll just throw things back and forth until they get bored, moving on to the next game.
Often they’ll play together but sometimes they’ll play separately but occupying the same space, happily doing their own thing side by side. They love knowing that they’re together but comfortable enough to play on their own.
Hours can pass so quickly in the garden and the day will always end with LP asking if she can water the garden and them both asking if we can eat outside – such a treat, and such a novelty that I’m not sure any of us will ever get bored of.
I’m now hoping this weather stays awhile, that it doesn’t get colder and wetter again and that we actually have a proper summer now that we pretty much skipped spring. The children are loving being outside and parenting is just so much easier when the sun is shining.
If you have an ordinary moment this week, come and link up – I’m looking forward to reading the moments that you share and will comment and share them on Twitter through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part.
