Exploring With “Small Boys”

“It is infinitely well worth of the mother’s while to take some pains every day to secure, in the first place, that her children spend hours daily amongst rural and natural objects; and, in the second place, to infuse into them, or rather to cherish in them, the love of investigation.” 
I can have a tendency to become consumed with the ‘busyness of life’, the ‘to do’ lists, the mundane and then forget to make the time to see the world through the eyes of my children
Today I consciously stepped into the world of our younger boys, we headed down to our bush for a ramble and the observed the boys exploring



As I watched them investigate their surroundings it was fascinating to note what observations they made and objects they collected
Just a short ‘break’, an hour at most but most rewarding to immerse in a different pace


I came home renewed and tuned back into the world of our “small boys”


Life is good
