My time with the kids was coming to a close, so we went back to our favourite place – the woods – for another walk around and one last go on the rope swing.
These woods are a part of me, having grown up there and spent so much of my childhood and teenage years criss crossing every nook and cranny. And for my children to love it as well gives me great pleasure. I can’t even describe.
There’s such a vibrant green from the oak and beech trees in summer – usually this fades to a dark rich green, but I think because it has been so wet and also it was relatively early in summer still, the trees were still very bright. It’s amazing.
But all too soon, 2 weeks was up and I was back at their house, getting ready to say goodbye again. It’s lovely to see them in their domain though – Henry riding his bike and Ella showing me her guinea pigs and stuff.
They’re growing up so fast, it’s so hard to leave them 😦
Until next time…
