I love it when kids play outdoors with nothing more than space and imagination. My triplets and their new friends had so much fun with sticks and a pretend battle ground on our new land, they quite lost themselves in the games and played happily till tea. I think Daddy originally sent them out to collect stones from the land ready for grass seeding, that bit somehow became forgotten! Despite the whirling sticks and shouts from us parents no one was injured! Sometimes it is good to give them a little slack to enjoy their play.
Adding in a little structure then brings out the competitive spirit in all the children. Who can jump highest and furthest?
Who is the fastest runner?

Sometimes I am amazed by how many different activities the children can come up with on the farm. This week Theo and Jed found Frogspawn and were keen to show me. Round the lakes and down in the boggy sections of wood we discovered vast amounts. I think it is going to be the year of the Frog at Coombe Mill!
The boys had hours of fun with me in and out of the boggy sections, finding new stream sources, frogspawn clumps and of cause welly sinking patches!
