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 ...

Mika and Eden ...

It wasn't that long ago that two little people came along to the farm for their first visit.  Peas in a pod, Mika and her twin brother Eden.   A little unit together, very in love with each other, and the play they'd create in each others company.

... and individually so unique, both with a lot to offer and give ...

Mika has left her mark on all the hearts of the little gang she shared the day with. Those deep dark eyes peering out at the world have been eyes we've all looked out to see.

Frankie-Belle would often arrive with a smile, take everything in, look at me and then  asking, 'Is Mika coming?' as if even with everything good at the farm, it wasn't quite right until she knew whether or not she'd see her little friend.

Mika's heartsong to me seems one where imaginative play allows her to share her sense of beauty and love with all.

The Witches Garden was where she first touched us all deeply with her spirit in this way.   Placing leaves and gumnuts and twigs like jewels to us all look beautiful.

She'd sing and soon everyone would join her and her sense of humour would splish splash around all day in quirky ways too.

Mika thank you for letting us into your world while being part of the world at the farm.

Eden got to know the farm with Carly and her gang.

In Carly's words ... It has been wonderful to watch Eden grow. I have witnessed his courage in learning to spend time away from Mika.  I have seen how wonderful it has been for him to experience his own group of friends and what life is like being away from his family. He has been a wonderful addition to or Wednesday group.  I feel each of those kids touch one another deeply, so he will be remembered in each of our hearts.

The farm days have come to an end  for Mika and Eden and it's time now to say goodbye.

Thank you for blessing us with your individually unique ways and blessing us too with what you share together.  We will miss each of you and both of you and wish you well in your next adventures ...
