For their craft this week the children all started to learn cross-stitch embroidery, and began making themselves bookmarks.
Hannah found it quite tricky as she has yet to master the art of patience, but she did get the hang of it in the end and quite enjoyed what she did.
After the session we all picnicked in the park in the sunshine, and the children had a wonderful time playing an elaborate game of chase and climbing trees. Hannah certainly had fresh air and exercise today!!!

Finally Hannah and her friend Esme went to Rainbows, which Hannah said was brilliant. It's been a good day :-)

Today she caught Chunk from his field, groomed him and tacked up,
Then she started trotting over trotting poles on the lunge, doing rising and sitting trot alternately. This was 'super exciting' according to Hannah!!!

This afternoon Hannah's tutor Claire came. Claire is lovely and Hannah really looks forward to seeing her. She brings a fresh approach and a new learning experience to our homeschooling and Hannah is enjoying every minute of their time together.

The children had a really fun time in the sand pit and playground, they built castles, dug holes and buried legs and hands in sand before moving on to ........... .....a ride on a swan boat!! There was a lot of hopping on and off, changing seats, and chasing a ball floating on the lake!! Luckily Emma and I sat peacefully on the shore watching all this so a big thanks to Steve for doing all the peddling - Hannah thought it was fantastic!!
On Canoe Lake they also have Wave Walkers. They are giant inflatable plastic balls and you bounce around on the lake inside them. Of course Hannah and Ben HAD to have a go, and really enjoyed themselves!

We spent the day on the farm again today, and Hannah had another riding lesson. It was a beautiful day, warm sunny and the Swallows had arrived for the summer. I thought a bunch of photo's of Hannah sitting on a pony might be getting a bit old now, so i took a video instead :-)
Next week she is learning trotting poles !!

Second Entrance To Badgers Sett
Into The Woods
Roger teaches the children how to light a fire safely.
Hannah adds wood to the fire.
Fox Tracks Violets in the Sunshine (the sun did finally come out!!)
We walked for 3 hours in total and learnt so much, and the children really appreciated the natural life all around them and totally immersed themselves in the experience. We can't wait for the next nature walk now :-)
