Spring is well and truly here, there is green everywhere, so fresh and full of life.
Seeds growing into seedlings, uncurling their beautiful delicate leaves, filling the window sills.
My body is also craving green; fresh green chard and sprouting broccoli and kale from the market are on my plate with nearly every meal.
We are outside in the fresh air as much as we can be, walking on the beach after dinner, grabbing a quick play in the park on the way home from school. The fresh air breathing energy into us and helping long, deep sleep. Along with this the children's play has deepened, they are so involved with their lego games and set ups. They are also really enjoying have space in their room to play quietly (or not so quietly if the lego man 'Ultra Magnus' is involved).
Joa and I went to our last playgroup today. I've been going to playgroups now for 8 years and I feel my time is at an end. Joa is happy with the Buddies group and will start pre-school after the summer, so it is time to let playgroup go.
We had a really lovely last session. We all met at the park and spread picnic blankets on the grass. We hid loads of little chocolate eggs and the kids searched for them.
My crafting is spring like too at the moment...
Yes!!! We're off on holiday on Monday, all 8 of us, to a beautiful holiday house in west Cork for a couple of nights. We're so excited about it, counting sleeps and making plans!
This evening after dinner the kids decided they didn't want to go to the beach, but wanted to paint to music instead.
These are Rebe's paintings :
Vivaldi's Four Seasons
Home From the Sea
Rock and Roll Crazy Nights
painted to Ellie Goulding's How Long Will I Love You?
I will be back here with pictures of our wee holiday next week sometime :-)
