Welcome ...
This blog has been created to allow family and friends to share in and become part of the experience of 'Down at the Farm'.
Enjoy the children, their love for each other and their open hearted wonder and excitement.
Over time you will get to know the farm through their eyes and will see how they spend their day with each other in a very rich, organic way.
Each vignette is a snapshot in time. Follow from one to another, then on to more and you can share in our unfoldment and journey.
Enjoy your visit ...

The very wee farmers .. ..

Carly has some very wee farmers in her group .. little Mac is only 15 months old and a mighty little soul he is.  Gabriella and Soukie both two ..

Have an eaves drop on some of what has been happening for them ..

July 2nd ..

A gentle day with only Mac and Gabriella .. We sat at our meeting spot for quite some time while Gabriella made Mac (Mat) and I some 'bretfast'.

Gabriella paused when she heard the chickens and said .. .." .. the tickens get sick when day eat lots of rooster food!"

Back to breakfast ..

Gabriella said "Sit down on your cheeears udawise I'll tate your pantates away! Ok would anybody yike some yunch? Dis is my hot powidge!"

They both played so sweetly together under the peppercorn tree for ages, Mac copying Gabriella and then just doing his own thing too!

.. .. like creating things with his little stone collection!

We also spent a lot of time in the barn due to the weather, reading books and snuggling by the fire!

Mac had so much fun with one particular book that had farm animals in it that you can slide out!

We read it possibly 30 times! Mac went through it saying " Moo, Duck, Pig, Moo,duck, pig .. .. .. looking up at me each time with his beautiful sweet smile!

July 9th .. ..

We welcomed back Soukie this week, what a delight that was. It was a girls day today, just Gabriella and Soukie, but both girls constantly asking me where Charlie and Mac were, (they are both on holidays and obviously missed by the girls).

We had a very sweet day, the girls played together beautifully. Really loving one another's company.

Soukie has created a lovely nick name for Gabriella, which is Bella! So all day it was "Bella, sit here, Bella............, where's Bella? Bella want dis stick?"

We played in the Goats house, (a little corrugated iron A-frame shelter with a floor of hay for goats to stay warm, comfy and dry in) down in the bottom paddock for possibly two hours. It was beautiful to watch the two girls interacting.

We played houses, "Who's knocking on my window?" and sitting in the house singing songs!

Soukie loved being back down at the farm and I could see on this visit, she has much love for her new found friends here. Gabriella really embraced Soukie and seemed to me she has really missed her .. ..they spent the whole day holding hands .. .. just gorgeous with each other!
