Spending Time

One thing we are really good at, is spending time together.  I mean really spending time together.   Laughing with each other.  Telling stories.  Playing.  Just being.

It is a very important part of our family life. 

Getting out into the world and exploring our wild selves is what our family life is all about. 

Just being with eachother.

And this weekend was no different.

We packed he Mamavan with drinkbottles, snacks, and the Reasons and with a loose plan in hand we drove. 

It had been a while since we went up the mountain.  A place we have always loved. 

We pulled up at Hangliders Lookout and like wild animals just set free the Reasons ran off into the grass. 

Don't be fooled - the hill is quiet steep.  It took Camille a little while to get her balance and while the big four danced about, she kept telling them to "be careful". 

I continually marvel at the little people we are blessed to be sharing our lives with.  Watching their souls blossom.  Watching them bloom into people we are proud of.

Watching their individuality grow.

 Watching them interact with one another.

Remember this flying baby?

2 years ago.  To. The. Day. 

She is no longer the flying baby, but a beautiful little girl.

 As we watched the wall of rain come towards us, I felt peace again.   I finally felt the wall become a mist of rain.  No longer hard and high, but transparent, unclouded and soft.

I am starting to feel like myself again.  And it is good.

  4. I have been reading your blog for awhile now and love your style of writing. We are moving to the Gold Coast at the end of June. Have got our visa's and have sold the house now just have to wait for it to close. We are moving from Canada so are looking forward to not having to shovel snow.
    Where abouts is Hanglider Lookout. Looks like a great place to take the kids for a run and picnic.
    We're getting excited and making plans on things to do. Still have my snake phobia happening but everyone keeps assuring me that I will be lucky to even see one. Keeping my fingers crossed.


I am a Mama of Five. A wife to one. I believe in documenting life using stories. I love telling you mine and would love to hear yours.
