My kids love their life in our Swiss village.
I don’t worry about them being outside by themselves. An hour will pass without my seeing them from the apartment windows but I know they are safe.
It is liberating.
When I was a kid it was the same. My brother and I played outdoors for hours without our parents worrying about our safety.
Now, my children can experience the same freedom.
Here are some pics I took of them playing in the field near our building while I was with them.
I still will not let my son go out by himself even if other people do allow their kids to at his age. However, I feel he is too young to watch out for cars and other dangers.
Grandma O. and Grandma C., the flowers in the photo below are for you. Sweet Bear asked me to take the photo of her holding the flowers for you to see here. Kids are so smart it is scary sometimes. She loves you both and misses you terrible. :) Happy Mother’s Day from all of us!!!
Below is a photo of Boy Blue watching for his sisters. Since he is too little to be outside without me he will follow his sisters from the windows watching them and laughing when the girls are having fun. It is so sweet.
