The day he arrived back he spent at home with us. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine, so I put the paddling pool up for the children.
Sophia was at preschool for the day so it was just Archie and my dad until 2pm, my sister’s popped in too.
Archie absolutely loves the water, and the joy in his face as he splashed and played was so beautiful to see. He really enjoyed it, being with grandad, being in the sun, and the water it was all so ordinary and it was all so special.
From my eye view it was beautiful to see the joyful smile on my sons face and his dimples, his little baby hands clapping and splashing the water, watching as he had to close his eyes from his own splashing, I saw him in front of me, he was happy and his bellowing laughter and little giggles told me this. The way he jumped up and stood tall in the water taking deep breaths, while he laughed and enjoyed himself.
Children have a magical way of perceiving the world. They take every activity as a blessing a time to be joyful and a time to be happy, now. I learn a lot from my children and I am thankful for that. Everyday in the ordinary.
Don’t you think children have a beautiful way of looking at life?
