They have re-discovered the joy of playing outside. They have fallen back in love with their bikes, scooters and mucking around in the dirt. Why? Not sure really, maybe being on school holidays has given them the time to play. During the school term, we are always so busy, with school, soccer, homework and general routine stuff, that by the time they get outside its too cold to play.
And honestly I dont mind the dirt. They have been digging, and planting, picking flowers and just generally enjoying themselves, and afterall, a bit of dirt is nothing that a load of washing and a bath cant fix!
