... personality plus

Have you met Oli?

A powerhouse of energy, creative impulse to burn, love in his heart for his friends that's big ... all tempering and being harnessed for the best ... he can give heaps of love and stand his ground when things don't feel fair like no one.

... and along came Greta ... Oli's little sister ... and personality and more spilled over in bounds there too.   Oli was beside himself being able to share the farm with Greta and short of hi-jacking the day and expecting everyone else to follow ... these two loved sharing the day with Cosmos and Jyra.   Oli as it turns out is a very beautiful little teacher with Greta ... he naturally shows her in Greta sized steps what to do and she laps up every word.

Greta is going to be a regular trouper next year and came for a day with Oli this week and LOVED it ... can't wait to see her again ...

They spent the day with Cosmos and Jyra ... and we all warmed up playing in the dirt and making mud together in the morning.   

Mooching around and enjoying the mild day and clear sky ...

Jyra got a little rhythm going in the morning, sticks and rocks were her drums and she sang her little heart out much to Cossies delight.  He just couldn't help himself but join in  ... and they were so very gorgeous together.

A favourite game at the moment is 'The baby game' ... where Cossie and Oli are the babies and Jyra the mum.  It's quite hilarious.  Jyra is ever patient as she runs round after her babies keeping them warm and making them food ... and Cossie is the sweet little snuggly baby and Oli the wild and nothing's enough kind.  Jyra loves them both.   Eventually this game morphed into 'Mothers and Fathers' ... when Oli got sick of being a baby.  He and Jyra were the mum and dad and in a moments frustration Oli said, 'Oh Jyra come on let's just go lie in the sun and leave the kids, I just get no sleep with them.'   So he slipped from wild child to overtaxed dad in a moment.   Funny thing being, that Cossie plays the most loving and sweet child anyone could want.   Mum and Dad snuggled up and left their 'baby' Cosmos with me, who decided it was better fun at my house as his 'dad', Oli, was too grumpy :)

Greta while all this was happening just floated in and out of the game being Greta ... she was really happy exploring, chatting, finding things ... whatever took her attention.

Later in the day, Jyra and Cosmos were guinea pig cuddling.   They were being so sweet with the guinea pigs and really sweet with each other and as the words of love and kindness they shared got sweeter and sweeter, the two little guinea pigs they had slipped closer and closer until they were snuggle up alongside ... with Jyra and Cosmos happily announcing that they were in love and having a kiss and a cuddle.
