The week so far

This week has been busy. Hannah has been to ballet class, drama class, riding lessons and had a stable management morning with her friends.
We have had friends over for socialising and Hannah spent Sunday at her friend Maddison's house.

The fox has continued to visit our garden daily, and we are having to keep a really close eye on the rabbit, who is not impressed. The fox is beautiful though!

We also went out to the shoreline near our house to view the super moon this week.

Someone let me in!

After the pony morning yesterday our friends came home with us for the afternoon, and Hannah, Izzy and Anna had a yoga session. They lit candles and set out all the crystals to make a chilled out atmosphere. Hannah loves yoga!

Tuppenny Barn - Natural Art Activity

Yesterday we visited Tuppenny Barn for a tour of the site and a natural art activity. There was a poetry activity as well, which Hannah opted out of as she was just too cold to stay outside any longer, but the art was fun.

We began by touring the smallholding and learning all about their environmental and sustainable living policies.

We saw the bees and bee hives on site.

 Then the children foraged for things to make natural paintbrushes from, and were told about making natural paints (the paints had already been made for us to use).

They made a variety of painting tools,

and then tried them out painting some autumnal scenes. Hannah painted a woodland.

It was really very cold though, and with so much sitting still outside Hannah decided that the poetry session (also sitting still outside) was too much cold to bear, so we retired to our friends van with some warm blankets and hot drinks! She still had a fun afternoon with her friends and enjoyed the site, and the art so all was good!
