Siblings Project (September)


Only a couple of weeks ago we were on holiday and every day was a beach day. It feels like such a short time ago, and yet we have already settled back into the school routine of early mornings, spellings practice and dance lessons! Mia and Joe have returned to their fairly seperate weekly routines and are seeing much less of each other than over the summer break. I took these photos on one of the very last days of the holidays, at the end of a lovely day at the beach. They are waiting at the edge of the sand dunes, tired and covered in sand, for their dad to bring the car from the car park to pick them up! And yet, there is always time for silliness and messing around with these two. Showing off and seeing who can make the other laugh the most.


Joe may be four years younger than Mia but he contributes just as much to their crazy games and is often the instigator of the maddness.


Here he is mid-dinosaur dance move whilst Mia is singing invented pop songs very loudly. Just occasionally I stop to wonder what strangers must think of our funny little family group. I think that most are quite amused, and some initially startled by the noise and enthusiasm of their games. I notice that older people, possibly grandparents and parents themselves, often just smile kindly. Perhaps they are remembering these sweet times with their own family (…well that’s what I tell myself anyway!)


I have also been joining in with the Siblings Project on Instagram at @siblings_project . Come and take a look if you’ve not joined in already!

    They really look like they’re having a lot of fun together – my eldest loves being a dinosaur too! #siblingsproject

      Thanks Sarah! They are always at their happiest at the beach! So funny when they are being dinosaurs isn’t it! He’s made quite a few people jump with his roaring!

    Making each other laugh is one of the treasures of siblings. It’s my favourite thing to watch with my two.

      It’s so lovely isn’t it! I always think that making each other laugh strengthens their bond. Sweet moments to watch between them x
