Hello from Belgium!

October 24, 2013

We’re all in Belgium together this week! Ten children, five adults and loads of chaos! Coincidentally all of our school holidays fell during the same week, so we rented a big house in the Ardennes to spend the holiday together. We’ve done a bit of exploring around the area, we’ve gone on some big hikes in the forest behind our house, but mostly we are staying home enjoying lazy mornings, doing lots of cooking and letting the kids run around together. We’ve been really lucky with the weather this week – it’s been so unseasonably sunny and mild, and the kids have been spending so much time outside. What a treat!

We thought we would share some photos of our time here. Hope you don’t mind the many photos (of course we couldn’t resist the big group photos! ten children does feel like a lot when you get them all together!!).

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week as well! Were your kids also on school holidays this week? Have you travelled anywhere? Please share!

Beautiful photos! Yes, my kids were out of school for fall break as well. We took a long weekend in a cozy place called Star Valley, Wyoming, and also visited Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Forest. It was so wonderful to be together as a family without any distractions!

How lovely to visit Wyoming! When I was little, my big family piled into our big van and took a road trip to Jackson Hole and the Grand Teton. It was amazing! I definitely hope to do the same thing with my own kids some day. Thank you for sharing. xxx

Oh my! 🙂 What a wonderful time you must be having together! Belgium is such a beautiful country, I really loved all the photos of all your happy kids playing together outside in this green place. Your children are so beautiful as you, Mamas! You’re very inspiring to me. Thanks for sharing this precious moments.

These photos are so lovely! What fantastic childhood memories this kids will have!
I was wondering, being such an international bunch, if the children have a common language?

Where did all three of you get your boots? They’re lovely and I’m on the lookout for a new pair for winter x

So sweet, the children lined up in the first photo instantly reminded me of the Vonn Trap family children……
