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 ...

Gaggling geese

We welcomed Ali back for a visit today (Henri’s sister, who came on Wednesdays last year).  She was having a school holiday visit with us.  I'm really glad she got to come and play, as she missed out on a day last week through being unwell.

We made our way around the farm today, even in the rain. Thankfully we all had a rain jacket to wear!

We all played hide and seek for a long time, with me trying to teach everyone how to play and not to point people out when they’d found a very good spot to hide. It is a little difficult, when you have five very excited children. But lots of giggles and “let’s do it again!”

A very gorgeous moment we had was following the geese down the path, my gaggle of geese and the real gaggle of geese! Then the kids stopped and so did the geese and we sat and kind of had a mini stare off. We were just simply checking each other out with just enough space in between. This kept everyone interested for quite some time!

The overall feel for the day was warm and lots of love to be shared!

Lovely to see Ali again!
