a day on the farm.....

this day was such a treat.... we went out to the countryside with some special friends to see where milk comes from!

the kids learned so much... the cows were so beautiful and the milk was so delicious! it was quite a chilly day which was fun... and it was just before Christmas so there was a little skip in everyone's step... thoughts of Santa's visit... just being with friends together.... was lovely!

it's so beautiful how children are so gentle with animals and it's even sweeter how the animals are so gentle with the children... there is no fear really... just love.

the children take in nature... like it's so easy... they love the animals so much it's almost like they could hug the sweet creatures.. it was really fantastic how this farm really focused on teaching the children about the milk... nowadays kids really think that milk comes from the market... strawberries come from the little crate in the produce stand... but if we teach our kids where our food starts from... from the farm ... from nature... to the table... it's pretty much the most beautiful thing to me. it's quite a circle... teaching children about the lovely rhythms of life... of nature...

we then came home and shook shook shook some more butter...mmmm!

what a day though... the drive from the beach to the countryside is just so peaceful... me and the girls... the windows down... singing... cool breezes blowing our hair carefree.... a fun memory.

  1. Ooh we love Daikin! The fist time we visited out there, we were blessed with witnessing the birth of a brand new calf. Amazing!

    And once you've made your own butter, it's hard to go back.
