It was a gloriously chilly and frosty morning as we headed to school earlier this week.
Every time the boys exhaled they were amazed they made clouds.
A very prideful moment for them both.
As we trudged along, stopping to look at ice which had formed on cars and the delicate crystals decorating the leaves, the boys were asking questions.
‘Why is everything sparkly?’
‘How will the leaves get back on the trees?’
‘Why is the grass crunchy?’
‘Why are the leaves different colours?’
‘Can we keep the sparkles?’
‘Can we pick some leaves for Ms Green?’
I love the fact that the walk to school can be both rather magical and informative for them, makes the early starts and long walks a little easier to deal with.
The boys are already looking forward to seeing the differences between Winter and Spring!
