Siblings {October 2017}

Looking back through this month’s photos I think it has been our most naturally outdoorsy month to date. We haven’t tried to get outside more – and as a family we tend to be fair weather outdoors types by nature – but I have made a point of going out with the children when we have a couple of hours spare rather than waiting for a whole day free.

The children love being outside and they love it even more when they’re outside together. They run around, chase each other, play games and collect so many things – they always come home with pockets full of nature.

This month has been kind to us as far as the weather’s concerned. We have had more dry days that wet ones and we have been able to do so much – although a lot has been overshadowed by school and doing jobs at home. But, we have still been out a lot, gone on lots of little adventures and given the children so much time together.

This month the children have loved going to school together. I think the routine has really cemented itself now and they are used to being dropped off together, picked up together and seeing each other at lunch and play times.

The novelty has worn off – but they still love it. It’s not a novelty anymore, it’s just their new normal and they couldn’t be happier. They also love that the time they have after school they can share together – doing activities, going to the park or even going to soft play as a real, occasional, Friday treat.

We have all settled into our new routine – and it’s working. The children are happy, we’re happy and life is good. This has been a nice month of pretty ordinary life – but we’ve loved it and that really sums things up at the moment. Life is good.

    We love getting out and about even if it just for a few hours, that’s one of the reasons I love having our NT passes as we can go to beautiful places and don’t have to stay all day. Lovely photos of your two this month x

    It makes such a difference to get outside, doesn’t it, even just for a couple of hours? My two love it and they run off some energy! Glad you’re settled into the new normal there, it’s amazing how quickly it becomes the norm and everyone gets used to it x

    I love that togetherness is their normal, they’ve always seemed such a tight knit unit and it’s only getting stronger. You’ve found a lovely spot for your photos this month too – what a gorgeous garden!

    Looks like they were having lots of fun on the walk. We love exploring the local woods. Need to find a new one. #siblings

    So nice to hear that they’ve settled in to the new school routine so well, and how lovely that they enjoy all that time together as much as they do. I always love reading about how well your 2 get on! x

    Oh babes I think these are my favorite siblings posts of yours ever!!! That one of them holding hands in the tunnel is a framer. They really are two peas in a pod they sound like my two together at school. They look like little twins here. So cute. Hope you have just as much outdoor adventure next month. We haven’t been out as much as it’s been down pouring a lot lately. More than usual. #littleloves

    It is always good to get outdoors, even for a short time. So much harder in the winter, but always feel better for it. A great set of photos of your pair. Glad they’ve settled into the new school routine.

    I love this post – so many fab pictures 🙂 It’s lovely that they’re enjoying going to school together – I remember how much I loved seeing my big brother in the playground when we were at school. I’m very much looking forward to the day when both mine are at school together too!
