My post for “Write anything Wednesday”
This week has been a bit hectic, my two youngest grandchildren age 6 – 8 years old have stayed a couple of days, so my blog has been a bit idle.
What have I been doing in those two days?
We have a farm so there are lots of things that can keep children busy, always something to do. Went for a climb up the hill to the highest point at the top of this photo, they considered that a great accomplishment, as these hills are steeper than they look, you need to be quite fit to do this.
They enjoyed helping to shift an electric fence, so the weaner calves could have fresh grass to eat, that was the first time they had done that, for sure it will be part of their morning talk when they go back to school next week.
The funny thing about moving the fence the grass was long and still had the morning dew on it, they were holding the electric fence standards in the air above the grass and walking with the electric fence, but the grass was so long, they were lifting their little legs high in the air, as they tried to move, with their eyes looking at the top of the fence trying to make sure the dead electric wire fence didn’t fall off.
Had me laughing, those smiles still stay with me today when I think about it. Good for the old body
It is mid summer in New Zealand, so on went the swimming togs, they spend a very hot afternoon swimming in the river, they saw an eel was quite excited about that.
The eight-year-old boy is a good cook. He makes scrambled eggs for their family, I asked him what he used, he told me all the ingredients, even to putting cornflour in it, that was a new one for me, when he went home, the last thing he said to me was, don’t forget my recipe for cooking scrambled eggs. Smiles!
Before they went home they when Blackberry picking, they had it all planned out what they were going to do with them, for a couple of young children they had many recipes they were going to cook, mainly blackberry crumble was one of their favourites by the sounds.
Hope you enjoyed my ramblings about the two days I enjoyed spending with my Grandchildren instead of sitting in front of my computer.
P.S. The photo at the top is not my grandchildren, they are good at taking photos, so this PixaBay photo looked right for this blog, as I would rather not put my grandchildren photos on the internet.
What are your thought’s about putting your own young family members on the internet?
