We really like living on the edge of a larger university campus, and have discovered a grassy area mostly hidden from pedestrian passers-by.
The kids have christened this area, passing a few pecking chickens, low-drooping trees and an area with pine trees and needle-covered ground beneath, the Pine Forest.
We roam around there regularly, exploring little things, or just reading (if you’re the oldest bookworm child), pack a few snacks and enjoy the afternoon.
While the other kids are going to class until 8 pm, getting ready for their exams this week.
I am so NOT a Tiger Mother right now.
Here they are,
1) Foraging for food,
2) Nose in a book (She just read #8 in the Anne of Green Gables series),
3) Tree climber/sprinter/creepy-crawly enthusiast and
4) All-around irresistibly adorable as she says “I you mama!” [leaves out the “love”, but I know it’s there]!
