Once a week it's just me and Jasper as the girls are in nursery. It is on this day that I go for a real exploring walk and I think J enjoys the walk without having to avoid a pushchair. Plus we get to have a bit of a run. This week however he would not budge. I tried everything and he did not want to go, I think it must be the heat.
After a lot of persuasion I finally got him to move and we set off on our exploration. He soon became too hot and I realised we had almost walked 4 miles. It doesn't sound much but in the hot sunshine I think J felt it. I decided to let him cool off in the stream and he took great pleasure in having a swim.
He began chasing and jumping on the leaves floating on the water, trying to dig the stones and catch the little fish in the stream.
I loved watching him cool down and secretly wished I could jump in too
This day I love me and J
