1-3 are in desparate need of a fill flash or a reflector.
Too bad mom's hand is in the picture in #4.
I like the joy on the face of the girl in #2.
Being candid shots it is a bit difficult to get the perfect shot
I like the expression on the last child's face. If only thoses fingers weren't there.
Might be true sometimes, but you can still get better shots. Your camera in #1 and #3 is metering and exposing for the brighter background and making your subject's faces too dark. Using fill flash would not be too hard even for candid shots and would definitely help you get better light on their faces. Also, even candid shots will benefit if you compose your shots without your subjects placed close to the middle of the frame when shooting with a landscape orientation. You seem to be really good at capturing great expressions.
The exposure and focus could be improved in some of these. But you caught the emotions of the children, and that's what makes people photography worth looking at.
