Walking in the forest

Every day,  rain or shine,  Freddy (23 months) goes for a walk in the woods with Papa.

I think that Freddy was just weeks old when he first ventured into the countryside and since then it has become clear that he could  spend all day outside if it were possible.


By the time he was 10 months old he could already follow his Papa walking across a field. 



The other wonderful thing about this walk is that almost every day Papa has taken a photograph of Freddy whilst they have been out.  These pictures now tell a beautiful story of a little boy growing up.

He has seen the seasons change....


and he has walked through streams.


He has seen the tops of the trees....


and felt the soil with his hands.


I had no idea that I would feel so privileged to be a parent.

  1. So gorgeous. Do you have a woods really near you? Our nearest takes us maybe 35-40 mins to get to door to door so a bit of a palaver to go every day, though I would so love to.

  2. Hi Rach,
    We are lucky because our garden backs onto the forest so we really feel like we are living in it. Of course that does mean that in the night there are lots of scary noises to listen to but it's wonderful.
