Although we started school like this:

I still think that he enjoyed the first week of school.
But we still have the summer holidays hungover so we still always walk before we eat our dinner.
This is our walk last night.
I am so sorry that the photo is always out of focus.
I am still not use to not having a viewfinder and I suck big time without it.

He actually wants to stay longer but its school night and we need to head back earlier than we are used to in the past weeks.
But its a good walk as he was able to tell me about how his week was and what he did. On one part of the walk he even managed to lie down and look at the still clear sky. He was pointing at the smaller birds flying and he is daydreaming on pokemon flying in the sky. He also found a 2p coin on the ground and said he has found a treasure! He then went to the sands to look for some more but was not lucky. I rummaged through my pocket and found a 5p coin and gave it to him and he was elated. 7p and my child is in treasure heaven! I wish I am the same haha.

We were holding each other's hands while walking back home and I thought to myself, life is good.

7p is my word of the week.

Ah, that is so lovely. My kids like 'treasure' like that, too. They're beautiful photos and I'm glad he had a good week back x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

I love your walks with your son! Would love to be able to do an evening walk too, especially by the beach :) #wotw

Aww! This is so sweet...It is so adorable when they still think any coins are treasure.
It looks like a lovely walk x

What a lovely thing to do, I think he looks much happier on his walk than he does in his school uniform.

That is a treasure indeed. I wish I could go back and make my nephew happy with pocket change. I'd hold his hand and never let go. Looking good in school clothes and matching satchel. I think your photos are just fine.

Looks like a lovely place to walk and just spend time together. EVerything's so rushed after school for us, this looks like bliss #countrykids

I think a walk after school is a great way to get kids to open up. sometimes they don't tell you anything about their school day, yet while walking or playing they suddenly start to chat. You do have the best school run route to enjoy which always helps. I hope week two goes well.

Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

Lovely photos, he looks so happy and how nice to be able to walk along the beach after school... even better that he found treasure :) #wotw

Very cool
Very cool pictures with the wheel behind, it is like your don is turning it! Mich x

I don't think you need 7p for your treasure when you have him. Sounds like a great way to talk about school and getting exercise and fresh air too.

It must be so nice to walk on the beach before dinner - and such a good way to get to talk! He is a lucky boy. My children think they are rich even if they only have 7p - I am not looking forward to the day when this isn't the case! #CountryKids

love the pics of him sat in front of the big wheel, and i also love the fact 7p can make him so happy. Sounds like a nice walk to blow the cobwebs away

He looks so much happier going on walks with you then heading off to school. Not having a view finder must be driving you crazy.

I still think your pictures are great, despite what you say! 7p - my middle daughter is the same, she loves having a few pennies, so grateful. Sarah #CountryKids

Lovely evening walk. Sounds lovely to go for a walk before dinner each day. He looks happy. #Wotw #CountryKids

My middle boy started school looking like that but he was full of it when he came home. It's hard getting back into that routine after a long, lovely summer, especially when you've had so much fun.

I miss the walk home from school as you can get so much more conversation out of the children on the way back whereas now they all come in individually, dump their bags and disappear into their bedrooms and I don't get anything other than grunts!

Really love the photos of the big wheel behind your boy.

7p the fortune of the young!! Lovely way to end the school day with a walk reminiscing over the summer. Love your beach adventures 😀😀#countrykids

7p is a lovely word of the week and having a walk like this after school sounds blissful. Love the photos of Sebastian with the wheel behind him - looks like it was so much fun :-) #countrykids

I love your Ferris Wheel photos :))
Your boy is growing up fast isn't he - they all are! I think it's lovely that you can go for a walk in the evening and be so close to the beach, it looks really peaceful and a great place for you to catch up with your boy and talk about his day. That's valuable time spent together
Well, they say 'see a penny pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck' so hopefully with his 2p (and your 5p) he'll be a very lucky boy!
