We spent yesterday at a nearby beach that, somehow or other, I hadn’t visited in around 20 years. I used to love going there, so watching the kids enjoy it really brought back some happy memories. They loved Continue reading
We spent yesterday doing some much-needed decluttering. It’s amazing the stuff that you accumulate when you have kids! Speaking of which, they helped – if that’s the word. We ended up with five Continue reading
Amelie is getting more and more adventurous as she explores the house. She loves her brothers’ bunk bed. She had been climbing onto the lower bunk to steal Xander’s cuddly toys for a while, but upped Continue reading
