This was a snapshot from out Autumn walk last week. A group of toddlers and pre schoolers all carrying bags and collecting treasures! That’s not the photo i am sharing with you though……

This is!

 The reason I am sharing this is because a 4 year old girl suddenly pointed to the road and said “That’s where the motorbikes drive!” She then followed it up buy pointing to the rest of the road and saying it was for cars. It took me a moment to see what she was seeing…… but there it is. A fixed bit of tarmac running down the middle, just  big enough for motorbikes!

Just for a second, I was transported in to the mind of the 4 year old! Bikes don’t need the whole road. They have their own road!

It is moments like this that I remember how much we take for granted and how much we just don’t see anymore. Walking with children lets you see the world through new eyes again.

That never gets boring!!
