Jam-nastics and getting to know you ...

In a quiet moment on Friday between Dakota and I, she was telling me about things she has been up to since we last saw each other.  In amongst it all, she announced that she now does jam-nastics.  She was so proud of herself and I was smiling of course at what she was calling this new thing she is doing.

She was along with Jyra, Monique, Ted and Magnus which made it full house for this little group on Friday.

Our day was mostly quite, gentle and we were often in a huddle chatting and being together which was very sweet and simple moments made the day.

Monique discovering that big hugs with Carly, who she had spent Wednesdays with last year were possible and welcomed brought a smile.

Going to see the windmill that was totally still and then noticing that the slightest of breezes sent it spinning was a treat.

Playing under the peppercorn tree, climbing logs, chasing pigeons, watching peacocks, sitting on hay bales, lying in the grass.

All this amongst moments of closeness and conversation and long stretches of just being together watching the farm life happen around us.  It felt like everyone was just getting sense of how it felt to all be together and that all round, it felt really good.
