Country Kids by my Country Kid

A very special Country Kids this week. My daughter has seen me type away and has looked at adventures posted on Country Kids, the special part comes from this Country Kids post will be that it is written by my daughter. She asked me if she could do one, I havent edited it, the pictures are taken by my daughter and I will admit that after reading I had tears in my eyes.

So here goes…….

Hello. I went to the forest with my Mum, on a lovely sunny day. I heard some bees buzzing, the wind blowing and the leaves crunching .I like the forest because it has beautiful sounds, colourful flowers and adventurous things to do. The forest was called Rudry, it was very close to where I live.
Me, my Mum and my Dad love the outdoors. We love the outdoors because we get to spend time as a family and there is no technology getting in the way. I think that being in the outdoors is healthy and gives us a chance to so some exercise.  

I love climbing trees, its my favourite. I love it as my Mum and Dad never say no to me climbing trees. It’s nice because they know I can do it. Sometimes my Dad looks scared when I climb high but he is always there to catch me.

My Mum’s job is exploring and going on adventures. She takes lots of children who haven’t been to a beach or a forest before. I know I am very lucky because I get to go all the time.

I took lots of photographs in the forest, the bluebells were my favourite.

I love being outdoors, I love exploring and going on adventures. I love spending time outdoors with my exploring family.

I loved letting her write this post, so great to get her thoughts on why we go outdoors as a family. It makes our family adventures seem even more important.

    What a lovely post! My sons love exploring in the woods too and I love your idea of getting them to write about why, because I’m sure they’d have reasons I haven’t thought of, plus it would be a good way to remind them why on the days when they’re more keen to be infront of a screen. Good to find you via #LetKidsBeKids

    A very grown up girl who is going to enjoy blogging I feel! I know first hand how much she loves the outdoors and you are a wonderful Mum giving her all the opportunities. Thank you to you both for this special Country Kids post.

      Thank you so much, what a lovely comment. Really enjoy linking up, it makes me realise how much we do as a ‘Wild’ family.
      Love reading the great stories that come with Country Kids.

  5. That was excellent Kim. The reasons for going outside are all sound, the pictures are wonderful but obviously the very best bit is where she says she likes doing it because she can spend time with you and her Dad. It’s truly wonderful to see a family this close.
    I know how wonderful this is because my daughter is in her thirties and still loves to spend time with her Dad though not climbing trees these days.
    You’ve done a wonderful job, Congratulations to you and your hubby.

      Hi David,
      I really loved reading my daughters post. Up until now I had never thought of getting her to write one, but she loved it.
      Great to see that as adults you still have lovely time with your daughter and when mine older it will hopefully be in coffee and cake cafes!
      Thank you as always for such heart warming comments, I love posting stories just for your comments!
      Take care,
      Kim
