We have so enjoyed the last week, our second week of the school holidays. I really do love having Lucas at home and I know that some people think I’m mad but I do feel sad when the time comes for him to go back to school. Even though it isn’t calm, or peaceful I like seeing all three of the boys together. The sound of squabbling is fairly frequent but always quickly forgotten, they can go from hysterical laughter to tears in a few seconds and then be back to laughter again. On the whole they have such fun together and the twins have been a little subdued today without their older brother to lead them astray.
On Sunday we woke up with the sun shining and decided to make the most of the last day of the holidays and headed out to Crosby Beach for the morning. It was a little chilly but it didn’t stop the three of them tearing round the sand and making a run for it towards the sea. They were all climbing up the steps but as the other two hopped down and ran off Bear refused to come down from them. He just stood up there grinning and me and jumping up and down. I love this photo of him, he isn’t usually quite as cheeky as his two brothers and it’s quite unusual for him to go off on his own and say no when he’s asked to follow us. However, on this picture the mischief is written all over his face! I couldn’t help but smile at him, hopping up and down and grinning, looking like he was king of the castle.
We came home with yet more stones and shells to add to our ever growing collection of beach ‘treasures’ and felt like we had blown the cobwebs away. It was a great way to round off the school holidays and the countdown is on to the next ones.
