Vicki (or the pied piper as I liken her to, such is her amazing gift with children!) then leads us in song and we then make our way down to the horse paddock armed with freshly cut grass ready to feed our hungry friends.
A slow meander through the lush property with time always allowed for little ones to have an impromptu swing....
hunt for fallen macadamias....
peer under large pumpkin vine leaves in search of Mr. Pumpkin.... and make our way back to the house for morning tea all the while spying little snippets of nature otherwise overlooked in our over- planned worlds. We slow down on Tuesdays and breathe more deeply....heaven!
We share fruit and homemade goodies and the Mummas are nurtured with fresh lemon balm and mint tea (herbs the wee kiddies picked on their garden wander) and delightful conversation. Some free imaginative play with scarves, Waldorf dolls, shells, wooden blocks made lovingly from fallen branches and logs....and some watercolour painting!
Then it's off to visit the chickens and give them rather a generous feed! A run to the giant lychee tree for some songs and climbing and then it's time to bid our farewells and head back to reality.
Such a gorgeous part of our week and one we both look forward to so very much. Thank you so very much Vicki for creating such an enriching experience for us!
