Magical Moments - Siblings Search

A warm Autumn day.

The golden leaves crisp under foot and the giggles of the Mini Mes echo while they search for conkers under the trees.

I'm sat on a nearby step, just watching.
Just taking it all in.

They chatter together, lift fallen twigs and look in hope of finding prickly green balls camouflaged in the grass.
They squeeze them open carefully, standing closely to each other, both watching to see if a brown gem sits tucked away inside.

They return to their scooters and pop their treasure into a bag to take home-
Knowing seasonal crafts and games await them.





There is a great big world out there, I hear it can be a fright.
But take my hand and hold on-I know we’ll be alright.
Brother and sister we will forever be.
I am so happy; I have my best friend right here with me.

Such a great thing to do, I used to love collecting conkers. POD is old enough now so we must take her. A fabulous post and a great quote. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory
