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 ...

What can I say ... Oli Schwarz

Right folks ... get ready to roll ... for it's Oli Schwarz we are about salute ... and life with Oli really does roll.

A high voltage package of fun, personality to burn, enthusiasm that never ends and talents galore that he's only too happy to share.  There aren't too many half hearted moments with Oli ... when you get into things Oli you really get into them ... and cook up a storm of fun ...

You are a total social entrepeneur ... you LOVE meeting people, making connections, sharing what's going on in your life socially and finding out the same for others and so often, it's the glue that makes it all work.

You've got a great sense of humour and ask questions to find answers ... when you ask, you really want to know and don't let up until we get somewhere ... even when I'm totally frustrated with you.

A one man show ... there isn't a power tool, workman's toy or piece of machinery that you can't mimic ... an industrial human beatbox while you play ... and so fine tuned that if anyone else does a siren or saw noise and it's 'not quite right' ... without missing a beat you stand and magnificently offer ... 'No, it's like this ...  BEE..bah.bee.bah ... or whatever is needed for that moment.

Oli you have given us all so much and kept us thoroughly entertained along the way.

... and along with all that high voltage fun, you can be as tender and sweet as a little kitten 

There is no corner of the farm untouched, no person you've met who's not been touched or entertained by your presence ... and no amount of fun we haven't had ... and while you've been at it Oli, we've all heard just how much you love, Libby and Phillip, Grammy Dorothy, Patchy and Claudy and Gretzy ... who's coming to join us next year and seems like she'll bear the touch for you when it comes to making fun and sharing a big personality :) ...

You are an awesome little man Oli Schwarz, we love you and have felt loved by you ... and are going to miss you a lot ... there's definitely a little Oli in us all now ... and that's a very good thing.  Thanks so much for the love, the fun and the learning.
