This is a snippet of Sutton Country Living that I’d like to remember: our dapples in the creek. There are some stunning waterholes around this little village. This is a favourite one as it’s so close to our house. The day I took this we were ‘fishing’ (with sticks) in this little pool & Soph tried very hard to go swimming in it, but resisted as I urged her to think about how cold it was – and it was that day. It’s so pleasing to see ones child use their brains and set their own limits, limits that vary from, though are not so very far from your own, and I’m happy with that. I’d rather she use her own head than do exactly as I say.
