#1 It was windy, it was sunny, you climbed and pushed yourself just a tiny bit beyond your comfort zone. Once you found your feet you were the best of helpers to your brother.
#2 So determined and fearless to follow each and every step your brother took, you even gracefully accepted his guidance which is something, considering you hate to be helped.
We took a trip out to the coast to Reculver Towers. It was so windy but fantastic! I’m not entirely sure an ancient monument should really be treated as a play park but that’s probably just the stuffy old historian in me surfacing. The wind just added to the perceived element of danger. I think other parents often consider me to be ever so slightly complacent, especially where Boy2 is concerned. But I’m trying hard to let go and allow the boys to manage their own risks and determine their own capabilities. Boy1 is naturally cautious and Boy2 is naturally reckless but incredibly capable. I love having boys!
After an age climbing and jumping we headed down to the beach for some fun, leaving a couple of hours later with yet another collection of pebbles. I think our next beach trip ought to be a sandy one
