August Break: A truck load of little memories



This truck is like a temporary scrapbook, accounting for our days.

Here are the conkers we collected from my sister’s yard, the first conkers we found this year, in the midst of the August heat. There is the grass Kaya pulled out in my auntie’s garden to put into the dog bowl before loading it in the truck for a souvenir. There are the yarn ends from a cardigan I finshed the other day. Here are some nuts Kaya found on the pavement as we were going for a walk. There is a little ball of yarn that turned into a cat and was taken for a walk on a lead and squeaked “like a penguin”.

Sweet little fleeting moments.

    I remember when my boy’s would put everything in trucks and drive them all over the house…fun times! xx

  2. I love the idea that our children’s play can be a scrapbook of our lives. Thank you for the reminder (whether you meant it or not!) to slow and enjoy the days. I have been too preoccupied to notice what Kate and Mae have been up to… today that changes.

    I just love how you said that – scrapbooks of our days together.
