3 photos – 2 from a country park on the weekend, 1 from after their first day of pre-school – 6 different facial expressions.
I love that they seem to have bags of personality, & are able to express themselves in this way.
With their faces they can express so many things: cheekiness, concentration, joy, thoughtfulness, sadness, anger, frustration.
I love that they are so able to be free with their faces, to not feel confined, to feel able to be themselves. I’m convinced that being this way makes for a happier life: reduces frustration, allows joys & sorrows to be shared: not locked up, or trapped inside.
Expressive children! Long may they be so.
