little hands to hold
then let them go to explore
smooth transit to joy
After doing some drawing games with my grandsons, we went for a WALK, although we don’t mention the word ‘walk’ because then Big Bro will not move from the sofa.
luckily Granny knows Evvvvv–er–ry–thing – even where badgers live.
We talked about those families sleeping underground, we found back doors and front doors and neighbours doors, we made up stories about them, we imagined them all coming out in the evening and playing together, tumbling and play fighting and quarrelling and chasing….
Walking with my grandchildren comes very high on my list of favourite things to do. Seeing the world through their eyes. … …
….climbing, falling, getting caught in brambles, jeopardy – where are we?
who lives in these magical holes – under trees, in trees….
how do we find our way out of the wood?
Phew! we found the way into the field
now for some tracking
looking down – who or what has walked this way before us, was it last night by the light of the moon
looking up – at baby catkins
thinking of Spring
oh wow – an abundance of acorns, let’s pick some up.
with tiny red wriggly worms in them
worms swimming, who knew?
squelch and splash and jump and laugh
Oh no! Where are we?
Look for landmarks to find our way home – ah-there’s the big oak tree near Granny’s house…… there’s her house!! – race you!
