"A photo of my little man, once a week, every week, in 2015"
 
Reece, we stopped at the frog pond earlier this week, to check for frog eggs. You settled down beside the water to look for some, and when I looked over you seemed lost in your own thoughts. You were gazing out over the water, meditating, in your own way. I stood back, watching, breathing deeply, and thanking my lucky stars to be mothering you.

    1. It is Karin-Ida, and we are loving every minute of it. No eggs, yet, I think it is still a little early, most likely another week or two. This pond is full of bull frogs in the summer, the sound coming from it when we visit is amazing!

      Hope you are having a lovely weekend, and thank you so much for the lovely postcard, it arrived this week :)

  11. So wonderful (and probably important) for children to balance their endless enthusiasm and energy with periods of quietness. Lovely shot to add to your collection. Hope you are well. xx
