A Happy Childhood

Happy Childhood quote - Kelly Burstow - beafunmum.com

An ice-cream after the morning swim.

Late afternoon walks on the beach.

Climbing coastal trees with my cousins.

Playing skipping rope games my sisters outside the caravan annex.

Colouring in activity books.

Going out somewhere especial for dinner.

Spaghetti in plastic bowls.

These are some of the memories I have of our annual family holidays at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  I grew up in your average middle class family, but my parents always made family holidays a priority.  As I look back, I see how these dedicated family times played an integral part of my upbringing and to the relationship I have with my siblings and extended family.  Now I am the parent, I seek to provide the same value for my children.  I see it as gifting my kids with memories of an overwhelmingly happy childhood they can draw on for their entire life.  Good times ahead.

Kelly loves life at both ends of the spectrum: wearing high heel shoes one day and hiking boots the next; sipping tea out of a pretty cup and slurping hot coffee from a camping mug; challenging herself physically and stopping for quiet unhurried moments to feel the wind on her face. Kelly and her husband Matthew seek to live a fun and adventurous life with their four children and pet bird.
