Half Term Up To Yet.

I love half term.
Time to breathe.
Time to be with family.
A chance to slow down,slightly.

And,time to explore.

We are only on Monday so the exploring hasn't been too in depth 
but we have managed some walks,
one by the river and the other in the woods.
In the woods the leaves were changing colour.
We have not been to these woods for ages.
But the memories were still there.
In abundance.
With everyone having their own little snippet 
of what these woods meant to them.
We walked quite a long way.
Up through tons and tons of sand,
until we came to the top of the woods,
which was a prefect place to play with sticks,
as all small boys like to do.
 It was a refreshing walk,
through a wood full of memories, nice.

Today we went to the water.
A big river.
which sparkled in the bits of autumn sun that
 occasionally peeped through the grey cloudy sky.

Down at the river side were lots of stones 
so we played a game of throwing stones in the water
and seeing who could throw the furthest 
and what stone made the biggest or strangest splash.
Time old games that never seem to go out of fashion.
Up on top of the riverbank were lots of cows.
Lovely gentle placid cows.
We spent ages watching them chew grass.
They were very sweet.
Even when they pooed.
Which they did, a lot.
Much to my sons delight! 
Two nice trips out.
I'm thankful that the weather is dry
and that we are all well enough to enjoy our week off.
