    It sounds like the school holidays are very much needed for you all and how sensible to have a first week chilling out after a busy summer term for you all. The park looks lively and the girls look so happy in each other’s company. Freyja is a great big sister. Well done on the swimming, I always think mastering a love of water and water safety early is such a good idea, it was a must here for mine with all the lakes and river. As for that last photo, I can’t wait for the rest of the post now, it is beautiful.

    Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

  2. Been loving your lavender photos! We haven’t been swimming yet, I even bought a maternity costume but haven’t worn it more than once- oops! Have a lovely summer Karen!! xx

      Thank you! I loved swimming during both pregnancies, but it was harder with Freyja in tow. Can understand why you haven’t been much!

    Swimming and the park are at the top of my girls lists too. Love that last photo #countrykids

    Summer days are the best. Looks like y’all had a lovely day out at the park. I am a teacher and we get 10 weeks off (with a few training days thrown in those weeks) for the summer. I love having all that time to reconnect with my son. During the summers, my son swims six days a week. It is such a fun way to beat the heat. Love the picture with the wild flowers. #countrykids

      10 weeks! It is nice to have that expanse of time. I am sure we will all be needing the space from each other at the end of the break, but I am really enjoying our time together for the moment.

  6. It looks like that you had a fantastic week and that park looks lovely as does the field with wild flowers #countrykids

  7. That is such a brilliant start of the summer and although you say it was relaxed you still seemed to fit a lot in! Love your picture of the girls at the park. Beautiful wild flowers too! #countrykids

    What a gorgeous picture of you all – I must make more of an effort to be in photos with my children! My husband is a teacher too and I love the summer holidays as it means he is home! Sometimes just going to the park is the best thing to keep children amused isn’t it? It looks like you have a lovely local park too! #CountryKids

      It’s hard to get photos of yourself with the kids though isn’t it? Mine are mostly selfies with lots rejected due to at least one of us looking in the wrong direction or pulling a face (not me!)

  9. Since my son started school summer holidays became more precious as well! And your first week looks amazing & yes looks like you are ready for the next 5 weeks! #countrykids

    Oh the summer holidays are the best aren’t they – we have enjoyed taking things at a slower pace. #countrykids

    Ooh the lavender farm sounds cool. I didn’t think there were any near us but that’s not too far. Hope you enjoy the rest of the holidays.

    Looks like you’ve had a great start to the summer holidays. As a fellow teacher I know how much I was counting down the days until we broke up. It always surprises me how much our little ones just want to do simple things in the holidays. I’m off for a look at the rest of the lavender post now… #CountryKids

  14. Love the photograph of you and the girls in the wild flowers – beautiful! What a refreshing start to the holiday! Enjoy the remaining five weeks!

  15. Love that final photo of the three of you and the ones of the girls having fun at the park with Freyja helping Emily on the assault course. Sounds like you are having a lovely start to the summer holidays 🙂 #countrykids

  16. It looks like slovenly relaxing trip. I will be keeping an eye out for all your lavender photos #countrykids

    I always imagine teachers refusing to get out of bed for at least the first week of the summer holidays. The summer terms seems to go on forever before the summer holidays begin. I love the photo of you all by the wild flowers, beautiful.
