    It can be hard to stand back and just enjoy the moment though can’t it? I am always rushing around checking that they are ok, where I think I need to stand back a bit more and let them explore and learn without as much guidance and shouting of “be careful” from me! Lovely photos too 🙂 #countrykids

    What a lovely trip for you all, it’s great that Freyja’s building in confidence since starting school and Emily’s confident enough to try to keep up with her older sister. I remember the moment with each of mine where they became independent enough to carry on on their own without so much fuss, it’s a big step! I love the shot of Freyja and Emily hugging at the end, the look on Emily’s face is definitely one of sisterly love! Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids.

      They have their moments (every day) but they do genuinely love each other. Emily adores her big sister and wants to be just like her.

  3. Amazing moments you have captured!

    Everytime my son is at play I am also just standing there soaking up the moment and I have to confess that my heart would skip a beat everytime he would go high! But I am trying my best not to run and let him climb and play. But like you I am there to hold my son’s hand when he seems to feel unsafe =)

      My heart is in my mouth when they go up somewhere so high. I get so worried that they will fall.

    It’s a difficult balance. Standing back and letting them explore. I have so many missed photo opportunities too, just enjoying the fun then realise I haven’t taken a photo! #countrykids

  5. I am such a snapper that I really have to stop and think and just enjoy time with my son at times too. They grow up so fast that actually experiencing the moment is so much more important. Looks like they loved their trip to the park #CountryKids

      It is so tempting to just keep on taking photos, but really is liberating to just enjoy the moment sometimes.

    I go through phases of leaving the camera at home, especially when the girls decide they have had enough photos for a while. Sometimes its just nice to join in jumping in puddles, running through long grass and skipping along with the three of them. Looks like they had lots of fun #countrykids

      I think I need to keep my phone firmly in my pocket on some of our trips out. So hard to get the balance of recording moments and actually enjoying the moment.
