kate5kiwis: Robin Hood


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Robin Hood

S8 got up this morning and cut a few holes in an old beanie, enthusing, "Now I'm a ROBBER!!!"..
yes, you are..
and so M4 followed suit, wanting his own robber-outfit.. but we couldn't find any other old beanies, so J10 offered, "How about I KNIT you one?"..
so off he's gone, casting on stitches to fit M4's head...
(and luckily granny is coming down for a holiday, so it'll have a good chance of being finished!)

Snap! We're reading Howard Pyle's Robin Hood at the moment. The boys have made Robin hats, and all have created a very complicated game which takes place in Sherwood Forest (aka the bush at the back of the section)...and from what I can work out everyone likes to be the Sheriff. There's lots of shouting of "Prythee lend me thy sword" and such like and T2 is always Will Scarlett??????
Their "Lincoln Greens" always come in looking very muddy - maybe I should send them to scrub off in the stream!

Love to you Kate....Rachxx

Oh, forgot to say we've all got the knitting bug too. J11 has done a pink mohair scarf and has almost finished a matching hat on circular needles. J10 has done himself and L5 a scarf. I've done so much I can hardly keep up with myself - heehee. Should start my own blog just to show you;-)
K8 and K7 are plaiting, plaiting, plaiting - any ideas what to do with hundreeds of plaited cords? (other than tie up Little John)

Rach again!

Don't want to hog your blog (heehee that sounds like somethiung you would say!!!!)....but gotta comment one more time....it seems perfectly natural that the A-Bears should be READING RH and the G's WATCHING it!!!!!!! It's calming to know some things stay the same!
