quiet

Waking up this morning we found the harbour filled with a thick sea fog. A beautiful sight, it creates the most amazing sense of peace and quiet. Warm, subtle shades of grays and whites, and that sense that it is cloaking a surprise, ready to lift and reveal. Certainly a lovely start to the day.

We are at the end of our first week of screen free, and couldn’t be happier with the way things have gone. Where I would have thought the kids would complain and harrass us for their game machines or TV time, there has been barely any of this, and we have had a wonderful week of creating, playing, and discussing. This morning was a great example – the peace in the harbour being reflected in the lounge as the kids sat at a table they had filled with drawing equipment and books, creating worlds and writing poems. Reuben has finished two books this week already, and Mia has written and illustrated a poem for both her Mum & Dad. And the best part of this? The energy levels in the house have become calm and relaxed. Fighting has dropped to a minimum, and kids yelling at each other has virtually disappeared. We are rather liking this sense of quiet x
