After School

In the morning school run for us now consist of biking at the promenade every morning
thanks to the sunnier and less windy weather we are having.

This week after school run got a lot longer for us.
We would stay for an hour or so at the beach and act like we are tourist haha.
Sometimes we would find fellow mothers and classmates staying on the beach as well after school.
So school run would turn into a big playgroup full of sand and sand angels.

And when its just us we mostly stay beside the donkeys. My son is so in love with them and would caress them non stop.
It can be a bit embarassing as we are there and are not riding them haha.
But the people behind the donkeys are really nice enough for us to just mingle with them.

I also wrote about how wether there are still costumers or not, when its time for them to rest its rest time!
And I am so greatful for that.

I hope this nice weather would stick. I am liking my son's color.
When its sunnier too my son's skin is showing how much he is a bit Filipino. His skin get brown!
We are using spf of course but you cant really help but get some tan when its this sunny.

Welcome back spring!

My word of the week is schoolrun! Umm thats one word right?

Donkeys are so cute!!! I can see why your son likes them so much! My in-laws have them in their backyard at times. Of course when I visited them I didn't see any. I was so sad. I live in Nebraska, so no donkeys, or beach here. Just a great zoo (world's best) and rivers.

Hi Merlinda, what a nice school run to have in the nice weather. A pedal home and a play on the beach can work wonders for winding down after a hard day of learning. I love donkeys, they are such placid looking animals and it's good to know they get rested when they need to.

Have a great weekend.

What a fabulous week! The photo with your son and donkey is lovely. He's really connected with the donkeys. Big playgroup understand isn't it lovely to be so free on the beach. Your son has a lovely colour on kis skon. my youngest son has a really good tan when the sun comes out as his dad has olive skin. X #wotw

You have one of the best journeys to school I can think of, how wonderful to meet up with classroom friends and play in the sand. It sounds like you have a lovely donkey riders there, I'm glad they lit your son pet them. It's definitely beats the average journey from school. Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

What a lovely school run you have. Ours consists of a very boring car journey, I'd love to be able to walk or cycle to school with the kiddies. #PoCoLo
