We’re so lucky being on the farm, as it means that even if we can’t get further afield (no pun intended!), there’s still plenty of space for the children to play outside. Being farm children, there’s not really any excuse for loving being outside.
Many a day, N asks to play with his cousin, and vice versa, so quite often they’ll be with their dads over at the farm for 3pm tea break. Then afterwards they have an hour or so playing together, usually at our house.
It’s great having them play together, as it’s a brilliant opportunity to get out the camera and take some shots of them. Unfortunately, N’s cousin is at the stage where it’s all about pulling silly faces.
They do have a great time together, although it’s noticeable now his cousin’s at school, as how young in comparison N really is in his play – he just wants to do his own thing with his cousin. He doesn’t understand 2 people role playing together.
