Living Arrows #3 - Saying Goodbye to Nursery & Fun in the Fields



I recently wrote about how emotional we've been feeling lately, with all the big changes on the horizon. Well, two weeks later and the changes are in full swing as Noah finished nursery last week, forever! I'll admit that the whole experience, and lead up to it left me riddled with anxiety. At times I felt like I couldn't breathe and it was all I could think about. I think it was a combination of him leaving the place and people that he's spent so much time growing with over the past two years, but also the fact that it was his last "baby" chapter coming to a close. I've written this in past tense but I'm still feeling it all and I don't think it'll feel real for either of us until September. 

These shots are three out of a dozen that I took of the kids last week. It was two days before Noah finished nursery, he'd had sports day and had been awarded a sticker for his hard work and efforts. He told me all about what he did because unfortunately parents are invited to watch as it's harder to arrange with preschoolers. He passed wet sponges over his head to other children, walked holding a bean bag between his legs, had races and so much more.

His nursery filled the children's last week with so much fun, as well as sports day they had a leaving party with lots of party food and games and earlier in the week had a nature walk too. I know he'll really miss it there and I will too. That being said, we are finally looking forward to the next step, school! Until then though, it's summer time!

  2. Lovely to see the children enjoying the great outdoors. Reminds me of the opportunities my siblings and I, as well as friends and neighbours :- Due to the green hill behind our home. Where we grew up, though there was a playpark across the street, it was extremely limited:- No swings, no football playpark. It was laid with tarmac. So trips and falls could be painful.

    Whereas the wonderful hill behind us we would climb, follow streams. See wildlife such as birds, rabbits, frogs, etc. Farmers fields held sheep, cows. The Forrest we would visit catch minnows, frog spawn. Mum allowed us to learn by observation :- We loved to see tadpoles, they evolved / developed into frogs. They were returned to the pond were we had got the frog spawn.

    We would in the summer make the most of the sunshine by packing a picnic ( sandwiches, fruit, etc) and families would go up the hill. Children would have a run around, etc.

    Greenspace so useful, beneficial for health, learning, exploring, exercising, getting some fresh air and natural vitamin D.

    Luckily planned playpark can be better planned :- Safer, and appropriate for users. Though greenspace will always have it's benefits.
