Last day...

I feel so lucky to be involved in the lives of many children, most of them I am related to, and I love them all so much.

But today is a sad day, it was the last day of one of my minded children. Although she is again family, having cared for her 3 days a week for nearly a year, and being lucky enough to be a big part of her life from a baby, I can't help but dwell slightly on how much I will miss seeing her.

But to celebrate the time I have spent with her I thought I'd just share a few more pictures of things we've done and shared!

Helping care for babies

Playing at the park
Exploring wildlife in the garden
Learning to climb trees!
ummmm looking drunk...? hee hee
reading books and so much more....

A Quiet Morning

After such a beautiful few days the weather has definately taken a turn back towards Autumn, but we've had a lovely chilled day none the less.
A morning full of farm play, baby 'L' and 'I' were playing together lovely today, 'I' has had some jealousy issues over the last few weeks so it was really nice to see them playing together again.
Then a trip out to the park for some fresh air and a play! There is a long line of trees down the side of the park which were showering their crunchy leaves down on us, we just couldn't resist walking through and kicking them back up in the air!
After lunch we put baby 'L' down for a sleep and had some story time with 'I'. I read the story first then 'I' announces "my turn" and sits to read the book herself reciting words or phrases she remembers.
