Run wild my child
We love to prepare a picknick basket and go out in the woods. Driving to the woods we are hearing all the “where are we going”-‘s and “are we there yet”-‘s and ” I don’t want to go to the wood”-‘s of the world. Yes, our kids are like all the other kids in the world. But once we are there all of that is forgotten and off they go. Climbing trees collecting treasures and building castles.
We hike for a bit. Find a nice place to lay down a plaid and our stuff as a “home-base”. Chilling and eating and playing around in the shade of the trees. We spot dears, hear the songs the birds are singing to us, the wind blowing through the trees and our wildling cubs howling to the beat of the forest.
Little feet are making a wonderful crunchy sound as they touch the layered floor of the forest. Every step feels different, little sticks, rocks, bones, grass, and mosses are all hiding under a think mixed layer of old crispy and fresh soft fallen leaves. Making every step an exciting surprise. Walking on barefoot shoes is making our exploration feel natural to the touch and safe against rough undergrounds and sharp objects at the same time.
All things we normally tend to worry about seeming small and insignificant. No to-do lists, bills to pay, work to do, places to be. Because this is all that matters, this is all we need. Each other and nature. This feels like freedom. Pure happiness.
We are rich when we leave to go home. Our bounty: A scraped knee, two feathers, seven stones, four leaves, improved tree climbing skills, twelve-spotted dears, hundred stories, and five fully charged inspiration batteries.
On our way back home our little Quinn falls asleep in the car, Haley is quietly looking out the window and Miley asking us ” this was fun! When can we go back!?”
As soon as possible my little wildling.
Miley, Haley & Quinn
We love Wildling shoes
Wildling shoes geared our whole family up with their barefoot shoes and we are loving it!
The wonderful feeling of running and climbing barefoot through the forest while being safe against rough undergrounds and sharp objects is amazing!
Walking around barefoot or with barefoot schoe, wair doesn’t just feel great. It’s actually really healthy too! The reason why is very well explained here:

We waren compleet als gezin. Wij 4tjes. Michiel vroeg mij onverwacht in Antwerpen ten huwelijk en we wilden onze liefde gaan vieren en bezegelen in 2017. Maar 2017 werd 2020, en 2020 word het waarschijnlijk ook niet... Lees hier ons verlovings verhaal.
When you explore, you tend to get dirty! But that doesn't mean we necessarily want to get clean... Because whenever we get a bit crunchy of all the playing, we just play some more in the tub!
