(Please remember to enter our children’s book GIVEAWAY)
In this cold and dark season it can be so difficult to find the right balance of it all.
While I want to wrap my little ones up in winter-knits and soft quilts ,they tell me that
it’s enough, Mama, I can’t even see with this hat on!
While I am lighting candles and knitting just one more warm hat for the littlest one,
while I am feeling such a strong sense of staying home, my little adventurers are being pulled
outside by the freezing fog,the muddy ground and the empty fields that surround our tiny home.
I love to see these two run with confidence,
climb with confidence,
find their way, have fun and not worry.
I love to see them so connected with themselves and the world around them,
it really makes for very happy children.
(And messy children, too!)
I am grateful for this little lesson ,
and even more grateful for the hot chocolate and tea that await us when we come back home with
bright red noses and cold hands.
Now, I better put all those sticks to good use,
I think we will roast a few marshmallows over a small camp-fire.
Wishing you an adventurous day,
