Raising little Westies, and life as parent of a special needs son
Another day at the river
About a year ago I wrote about taking my family to the Hawkesbury River. Since then our kids are now about a year older. They have all undertaken some swimming lessons and had a lot of opportunities to grow and develop.
We’ve been back to the river a few times and although it hasn’t been as hot in Sydney as it has been elsewhere in Australia these last few days… it has been hot enough.
Today we went to the river again, all five of us plus the dogs. There were several other people there with dogs, so that wasn’t at all a problem.
The amount of swimming out kids have been doing lately really shone through. We spent over two hours relaxing in the water – with not many other options given the temperature on the sand!
Our dogs as it turned out were the biggest cause of problem – with our female being in season, they saw the trip to the river as a romantic getaway from home.
It’s a strong mark of how far we have come that the evening following an unplanned day out, our biggest cause of concern is our randy dog!
