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 ...

Quack, quack .. whose this little duck?

Quack, quack .. who's this ... ?

It's me!

Jyra was very funny today with her little ducks hat.  At one point she took it off, held it's beak and went up to Magnus saying, 'Quack, quack.'  Magnus looked at the hat, then Jyra, then smiled and inspiration ignited.  'The ducks chasing me', he called .. and soon Jyra was chasing him with her hat held out as the duck, laughing hard and quacking at the same time.  It took only a moment for the other children to joing in and for 'little Jyra' as she's loved and called to lead the way into a very energetic and fun game for all.

We also had a real treat that was promised last week and Monique didn't forget at all ... Steve who comes to visit each week with his gorgeous gang of hard workers had promised he'd take us in to see the new baby piglets.  He and his gang clean the pens each week and so were able to let us in round the back for an up close.  Jyra stood holding my leg, Ted took 20 paces backwards, no way was he going to get closer and Dakota, Monique and Magnus took a breath and bravely went in for a look.  Thanks heaps Steve ~ that was a treat!

Steve, Josh, Lindy and Trevor ...

Ted has some great new mittens that came on and off during the day as he felt the need ... take a look ... aren't they great?

These two little cherubs ... oops, fairies had fun playing together and enjoying each other heaps.

... as did these two and the two below ...
