Pic 3: a little boys is ready to school with a monster backpack. Pic 4: Two little girls hold hand as they want down a path. All tagged on #capturingtheday

      Thanks so much for joining in, really was a pleasure to have you and your lovely girls take part x

    What a lovely idea! The images you’ve both chosen are so lovely and seasonal. I’d love to join in one week but at the moment my instagram pics are a bit haphazard and random. I say at the moment…they always are. But i will try and get on board. I saw the tulle pom pom pic…totally loved it. And in awe that anyone could make so many pom poms esp with 2 little boys running around! 🙂
