Wednesday afternoon and looking for nature
I am recuperating. It is Thursday, the day after Wednesday.
As we are back in Holland, the kids only have a half day at school on Wednesday. A whole afternoon of fun potential yawning in front of us, each week.
It took a little adjustment. At first, it was still very cold outside, I tried to get them to entertain themselves inside, but it is too long from midday to bed and the walls cultivate tension. They have to be let out.
So I find myself cycling around town looking for bits of nature to let the children touch the earth and gulp in some fresh(ish) air.
It is a question of resignation; the price of city living. I just wish they could go on their own sometimes.
I cycled and found some nature here.
Here was a bit.
This was good spotting.
Alright, once out there, everyone feels better.
Eagerly awaiting a house with a playground at walking distance.
