Frogspawn galore

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!

A Helping Hand 

We have been quiet on the farm in the run up to half term with just one lovely family staying with their two young children in one of our Scandinavian lodges. I was so proud of our children who came to join them on the feed run on Sunday and really encouraged their little ones to be brave with the animals and show them how to help out.
