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 ...

Thanksgiving and goodbyes ...

Our regular farm visits for 2010 have come to an end and we did what we always do to bring our year to a close ... we met and shared a picnic.

A simple affair, yet no ordinary affair as what shone on the day is how beautiful all the children are together and with each other.

What is also very obvious, is the appreciation we all feel for each other and the whole farm experience.

It was quite a moment in the lives of some, as a few children who've been part of things for about two years now, were all moving on.

Harvey, Finn, Omkara, Agnes, Dawn, Daisy and George and Charlie who wasn't there on the day have all finished their time as part of things happening at the farm.

We love and appreciate each and all of you, will miss you and wish you well.

My life has been deeply touched in many ways by each of these children.

While they make room for more faces to join through going, there will be no one who can exactly fill their shoes. They've each made a mark on farm life and in our hearts in their own unique and very special way.

Thanks to you all for sharing the day and coming along throughout the year. I feel huge gratitude to each family for your commitment and involvement. 

May your holiday season be all you desire and wish for, shared with those you love most.

There'll be blogposts over summer from some of our casual days at the farm to look out for ... and we'll be back in 2011 with our regular visits.

Thanks to Carly for the slide show and Renaee and Vicki for the photos ... the first photo under the slide show links to an album ...
