Savouring these moments…
Collecting sea shells
Building sand castles with motes
Running away from the tide
Running straight into a wave
Our walks to the beach
Benjamin saying “walk beach”
William digging his hands into the sand
Looking for fish
Explaining ocean life
Sure it’s messy and a lot of work, Williams constantly eating sand and Benji tries to eat the seaweed. I’m chasing one one way then the other goes the opposite. But these memories will last a lifetime. They allow me to be nothing but present with them and see the world through their eyes.
If we always stayed home because it’s easier to stay home than it is to go out and explore we would miss endless opportunities to make memories and build connections.
