Weekends are precious and when we are alone here on the farm we like to turn feeding the animals into a family affair. We can happily while away a morning on the farm, feeding and petting the animals, chatting and catching up on any little jobs that need doing along the way.
The children have been keen for Daddy to teach them how to drive the tractor. Today it was Theo’s turn. All our younger guests have a “pretend” go, sitting on Farmer Nick or Ted’s knee and helping at the wheel. Theo decided he wanted to be like his big brothers and really take control. Pretty good for a first try, though at age 9 he is still not strong enough to apply the brakes!
Some highlights from our morning
The animals are all very hungry now that winter is here and delighted to see us with their daily rations!
Daddy had his tool kit on hand for a spot of repairing in Jurassic Park (the Chicken, Duck and Wallaby enclosure). A few slats had fallen off the chicken shelters and they are an essential now that the weather is turning for winter. They will be all cosy again now and we may even find an egg or two for our breakfast in there!
The children rode back to the house in style as Daddy allowed them a somewhat unconventional ride on the tractor!
Please come and share your snaps of the children enjoying outdoor play. Active minds and bodies make for healthy kids.
