Dinner today was spaghetti with carrot, sweet potato and butternut squash hidden in the sauce. At one point the fire was being used to dry socks. The kids really had a blast today.
The children had the chance to make wooden rabbits and catapults, but then found they could hammer nails into the wood and wrap wool to make hearts. Really love this kind of child lead exploration.
What a lovely session this morning. We had the tarp up but it wasn’t needed. We went bug hunting and foraging, but no one wanted to eat any jelly ears. Amber loved eating the fresh nettles which tasted just like of green veg. The ditches had more water than we’ve ever had before but we did found it was dry by the island so they built bridges across to the other side.
Vans all packed, fingers crossed the tarp stays dry.
Time to prep the hidden veg for lunch tomorrow. 🍝
