Inchmahome Priory at a Child's Pace

A major trip to a foreign place looks totally different when you're traveling with small kids. 
The pace is much slower.
There are more snacks involved.
You set lower goals (figuratively and literally).

However, given the chance, you get an opportunity to view a place at a more microcosmic level, because that's where kids operate. 

These are things we are learning.

Inchmahome Priory was the perfect place to explore with Small Ones.
It comes complete with a ride on a tiny ferry.
With ruins to explore, climb on, and build stories about.
With unobtrusive interpretive signs.
And plenty of photographic opportunities.
From macro:
 To micro:
And everything in between.

Rambling as Four: Blogging Afresh

Oh hello.

I haven't blogged since before Small Boy was born, and now he's almost two.

So now we are Ambling Ramblers x4. With big plans, bigger dreams and a bushelful of energy.

Which we are at present expending in the gloriously green country of Scotland.

So I will take this opportunity to try to express thoughts and photographs via our blog once again. Stay tuned for thoughts on homeschooling with a Waldorf bent, parenting, traveling, being outdoors and being a thirty-something woman wanting to live intentionally.

So without further ado, I give you Small Girl, frolicking up a hill with her Mama whilst the younger one naps. Parenting one at a time is so much calmer, and I love the quiet talks we have while we walk together.

I convinced him to take the day off so we could go to the parade. It was worth it.

Peony season

A gifted bouquet of peonies has made a lovely addition to our table the last couple of days,
even with the accompanying ants.

Sunshine, picnics, sand and family. 
A weekend well spent.

 It has been a lovely gentle June,
with sun and rain,
routine and spontaneity,
and family.

Covered Porch

We had the perfect theatre seats.
