Down on the Farm

We recently camped on a farm property near Gingin. The children had a great time with the camp-fire and feeding the cows and sheep.

There is even a family grave in the middle of the camping area.

In the evening we went to the Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory for telescope viewing. No pictures of that of course as it was dark! Here's Saturn through the telescope though.

We wandered around Gingin; had a look at the old station and waterwheel before heading into the churchyard where the children were interested in whole families that had died at the same time and the reasons why this might have been. We took the nature trail through the paper-bark trees where we saw some amazing fungi.

String Pictures

By L

We joined our friends for an amazing free workshop at Bunnings to make these string pictures. 20 children hammering in nails at once; it was LOUD!

Lane Poole Camping

Despite the fact that it is now winter here in Australia we couldn't resist a camping trip with some friends to Lane Poole Reserve. The kids were even crazy enough to get into the river.

Digging for mushrooms

Mud fight

Outdoor meditation

We found this amazing natural fairy door in the tree. The girls gave the faeries some fences and decorations.

A Bear's Quilt

L has been busy on the sewing machine making this mini quilt for her teddy bears.
