A few months ago I posted some photos from our school walks and I thought I would do a little update and just share some of my favourites from the past few months. It would be nice if they were all taken in glorious sunshine with the boys wearing shorts and summer hats and although some of them are, many of them are not! Just this week Lucas asked to wear his gloves and woolly hat as he was so cold so I grumpily went to root them out. No matter what though I am always quite grateful that we HAVE to get out the house everyday. It always makes me feel better to get some fresh air and walk but the truth is if I don’t have to do it chances are we would just curl up indoors on those rainy days.
Lucas is still great on the walk, he rarely complains that we have to go out twice a day, whatever the weather. In fact this week he was so excited that it was raining and he could wear his wellies to splash in the puddles. He has a great road sense now and always very carefully stops well back ready to hold my hand and cross the road. When we first started walking I was fearful that he would just wander out but his awareness really is improving.
It’s lovely now that the twins are a little older and are starting to point and chatter about the things they see. Every day as we get close to the school we see two green buses go past and that must be the highlight of the walk for them. When we go to pick Lucas up the lollipop lady is waiting for us and gives them a big grin and a wave. Occasionally when we walk past the Fire Station the big doors are open, those are the most exciting days for three little boys who just gawp at the Fire Engine in wonder!
I share a lot of our school run photos on my Instagram as we go along but it’s nice to have them on here and see how it all changes as the year goes on! Hopefully the next batch of photos will be capturing some lovely sunny days.
