13-365 hay filled happiness in the woods

The wee man had his 1st settling in visit at the secret garden nursery yesterday. It was awesome, the perfect weather for an outdoor nursery. Both times we have visited it has been cold but sunny and bright. We were running late and rushing as usual - however we arrived just in time for lunch. The kids all sit on insulated mats around a make shift table eating a variety of foods from their flasks and boxes, ranging from a  cheese piece to spaghetti with pesto, peas and broccoli. Archie didn't eat s usual - however I'm hoping with the walk there and all the fresh air he will join in once he is used to it - I'm sure he will learn to conform One day! I don't need to add that Sadie got wired in to her lunch straight away and happily shared her goldfish with the wee man next to her.
Sadie making hay while the sun shines - duck to water, shame she has to wait 18months before she can go.

One of the things I love, aside from the kids playing in mud, hay and trees all day - is secret garden time. You just forget all about the rushing around life outside and get into calm play with the kids. It really is a pleasure to see them have such fun without toys or tv, painting with mud and digging holes in haystacks is way more fun.
Next week Archie goes solo for the 1st time, hope he enjoys it even more on his own, I'm excited to hear all about it on the drive home. He might even eat his tea!
