Nostalgia

Finger printing, painting on the walls, getting my hands dirty with colors and mushing through clay!
Digging out the weeds, watering the plants, cutting the flowers for display;
Climbing trees, plucking fruits, aiming for the highest one.
Jumping from the branches, rolling on the green grass, laughing with everyone.
Getting wet and dirty and dancing in the rain,
Picnics in the sun, sodas and ice cream, Oh, cant i rewind and go back there again?


Summer holidays spells fun for me along with the kids! I am reminded of the painting my kids did, few years ago, (which feels like just now) while i gave them the outline!

Finger prints on the wall
Tiny multicolored finger prints on the wall

Yellow train
Yellow Truck with diamond shapes on it
Yellow and blue flowers
Yellow and blue flower

Tiling the pictures
Then, there came a day, when these pictures had to go away and make way for the tiles
Blue Monday
Yellow Mellow Monday
Midweek Blues
Wordless Wednesday

  1. These were lovely memories. I was given one wall of my room as a kid to do what I wanted. That wall turned into a journal of my years as a child and a teenager. When the house was broken down, the one thing that hurt the most was losing that wall. No one took a photograph of it in those days. Your kid is lucky that you have preserved these memories. Thanks for this beautiful post.
