I really enjoyed taking part in ‘The 52 Project’. It has been utterly priceless to look back on. However, this year I’m going to do something slightly different and take part in ‘The Ordinary Moments’ hosted by Katie at Mummy Daddy Me. It involves a photo (or photos) each week of the simple. The exciting. The imperfect. The Ordinary Moments.
I know that in a few years, when they are grown up, at school, moved out, independent and self sufficient, I will forget about theses young moments that made me immensely happy.
As you can see our ordinary moment is nothing spectacular, but it is something I love witnessing each week.
Most Sundays we stay late after church whilst Jared organises things and talks to people, so we end up cracking our extra supplies out. They both sit there with a box each munching away – a chair picnic. I sit there taking photos and try to resist squishing their little faces. Ru’s expression in this one is just like Jared’s and Winston always insists on removing his shoes and having the farm book open at the tractor page.
The chairs are right by the doors so we have a good time catching up with people and waving goodbye. Our perfectly ordinary moment.
Jared has had a long chunk of time of work, so it’s going to be a shock getting back into our usual routine. We planned on spending every day with family over the festive period, but in the end we sneaked back to ours for three or four days to enjoy being just us, sleep in our own beds and to get some peace.
