On top of the world ...
We welcomed Ella back today after her six weeks away in Switzerland. Ella brought some wonderful photos to show us of her time away. Thanks Ella!
Everyone loved having her back; we did our usual things like having cuddles with the guinea pigs, playing in the witches garden and running along the dragon hill.
There were a few moments that really stood out for me today one being Henri and Archie feeding the calf and the horse grass through the fence in the witches garden. The two boys were so happy and laughing so much when the calf tried to suck on their finger. They were thinking it was so, so funny that the horse sneezed!
It’s the small things in life!
Another moment was during our time under the acorn tree after our big adventure into space where we went in our rocket ship and landed on a planet and explored. Luke and Eden were busy fixing the rocket ship, ( Eden’s laugh mind you was carrying across to all of us and making us all crack up laughing). Henry, Ella and Archie played 'Ring-around-the-Rosie' for about half an hour at this time. What I was observing was that they all just really wanted to wrap their arms around each other and have lots of cuddles. It was so beautiful to witness.
While we were under the big tree, everyone went up a path that is a bit like a muddy slide at the moment. Luke got half way up ... that’s where I ask them to stop. He sat there with his elbow resting on his knee and his hand under his chin and said with amazement and contentment 'I can see everything from up here.' He just looked so happy and like he was on top of the world!
