Slow January

Yey Friday!
We have been busy, me going back to a bit of work and him going back to school
and he did a confession with our priest Father Kevin last Wednesday too.
He was really scared because he has got nothing to confess but in the end he got one and he managed to do the confession properly.
He was really proud of doing it.

As school run is not that cold we decided to have a small pitstop at the beach. I can tell he misses it and the birds just follows us.
Wishing he will drop some crumbs.  The beach is surreal as its foggy.

Its not too dark too so I asked if he can stay put so that I can take a photo of his eye and he just started moving and laughing while I shoot.
I have gazzillion of blurry photos. Why do kids move more when you ask them to stay still???!!!

I cant believe that its almost middle of January! Isnt it just yesteday that we started 2018?
Life is slow at the moment but I am trying to enjoy it. It was a busy November and December for me last year talking to a lot of people and telling them my story and asking for help. Its draining and so I will enjoy this slow start of 2018 with the boy who wouldnt stay still.

January is my word of the week. Linking to the lovely ladies from the following blogs:

How lovely to take in the beach on your walks, I can almost breathe in that sea air just looking at your photos! Slow can be good, though like yours, my kids are never slow! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

It is going so quickly. I'm glad to see you are taking things slowly. I hope you are both doing OK? x

He is growing so much! I thought of you the other day when they mentioned your beach on the news. I hope things get much better for you and your boy this year xx

Simple pleasure
It looks a great way to shake off the New Year blues

So wonderful to see the joy the beach brings to your son. He is as free as the birds playing there, just as it should be. Take advantage whenever you can.

Thank you for sharing with me on #CountryKids

I'm not sure boys ever do standing still very well! I'm wishing you both all the best for this year and lots of smiles ahead x #CountryKids

Great photos. Non-blurry photos of children are so rare aren't they?! How lovely that you can go to the beach after school. We try to visit all year round, no matter how cold it is!

We usually have a dozen blurry shots too, as I run around like a mad one! Love the photos on the beach and you are lucky to live near the coast x Something beautiful like a foggy beach but kinda eerie too #CountryKids

Life's too short for standing still ! He looks like he's flying in the first photo ! #countrykids

Your photos are always awesome Merlinda - love them. Su #countrykids

Your pictures capture how joyful your son is! He looks so grown up. If I managed to get my kids to stay still for a picture they pull stupid faces instead so it's hard to get pictures of them too! I wish you both a wonderful 2018 x

Enjoy the slowness Merlinda, it's as valuable as the busyness - and as good as time as any for chasing birds on the beach :) Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo
