Over Easter we had the best time with some of our family visiting, including my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter and 10 week old grandson, along with my daughter and son-in-law (of course!).
Miss E is obsessed with stars and the moon and with daylight saving ending over the weekend, it was finally dark enough for her to see the stars before she went to bed.
Out on the verandah, we looked up at the night sky and introduced her to the Milky Way. She was in awe and just kept saying ‘wow’. We saw a moving light, a plane, which she excitedly told everyone about. She loved the bright light show above us and went to bed a happy girl.
And we loved sharing in her joy!
Living in the countryside as we do, the sky is bright and clear, so we often forget just how amazing it is. But I was reminded of it seeing it through the eyes of a little 2 and half year old. I love seeing new things through the eyes of my grandchildren and introducing them to new experiences. I also love the way she says Tumbawumba, instead of Tumbarumba 🙂
Surprisingly my new phone, an iPhone 12 Pro, managed to capture the bight stars and Milky Way quite well and I’m happy to share it with you.
This little poem popped into my head as I looked up at the beautiful night sky:
Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight
Do you remember that one too?
Becky’s square theme for April is Bright – it’s a challenge where she posts a photo every day. She invites others to join her in sharing their square photos, either every day or as they feel the urge. I’m dipping in and out through the month but am enjoying looking for all things bright and beautiful.
Feel free to join in with Becky and the Squares, the more the merrier.
Bright is a lovely theme to keep our spirits up, wouldn’t you agree?
