Medieval Fun Day!

Today was a fun day! After chores anyway...

Andrew and the children made bread and soup, and Nanny and Poppy came to visit for lunch. It was herbed beautifully, and they made them into animal shapes. Heres a pic:

Aren't they beautiful? And they tasted devine too... Dante made a fish of course, Raven made a curled up snake, Kai made a snake stretched out and Labyrinth made a teddy bear. Cute.

After lunch Andrew made a hunting arrow head while the children and I learnt to knit with Nanny and Poppy's help. Labyrinth gets it OK, but Dante, Kai and Raven need to learn by themselves I think. That's OK because I've finally got the hang of a very simple purl stitch (I think its called). Now I appreciate all the old ladies at church who make knitted items like dresses for babies. I'm not a natural, but I can do it finally!

Later in the afternoon we headed outside and tried "rabbit" hunting. We were using an old rabbit soft toy, but the arrow head and the poundage of the bow were not enough to pierce its thick hide!

We naturally did the reading lessons, which I'm happy to say is really coming along beautifully.

So, all in all it was a successful Medieval day, Q.

Medieval day sounds fantastic Q!

How wonderful having Nanny & Poppy involved and teaching the children how to knit.

The animals look especially delicious!
