Rolling Around



New carpet needs to be tested!

Not only for bare feet comfort but for jumping, jogging on the spot and forward rolls too, apparently.
The Mini Mes were keen to get active the moment they came home from school by dancing and
prancing about on the fresh flooring together.

They star fished
They tumbled
They played

They then gathered toys and teddies to seek their approval too!



"Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply"

~Jane Austen,Mansfield Park, 1814
