Springing into Spring!

There was a buzz in the Forest tots garden this afternoon. The happy buzz of children playing and adults chatting. The sound of laughter as banter was exchanged across the stream, through the bushes and around the campfire. It was a good noise, and it lifted my spirits enormously. After a long winter of putting so much effort into getting Forest Tots up and running, both at the group and behind the scenes, it was so so good to see that work really beginning to blossom.

I think the photos say it all really. The kids are beginning to really settle into the space we have. The mud kitchen was busy churning out 'food' all afternoon. We had pine cone sausages, mud ice cream with stick wafers and endless cups of hot mudchocolate!! The stream was busy too, and I think it was a huge relief for us 'grown ups' to not have to worry quite so much about the potential for hypothermia!

Enjoy the photos, if you'd like a copy of something then please E-mail us through the website. And we'll see you all next week!
