Farm Tots at Stewart Farmhouse

 We signed up for a fun little class together last week!  It was hosted at the Historic Stewart Farmhouse in Elgin Park and Miko had a blast!
 They have one class every month for 1-3 year olds, and each one has a different theme.  Our class was focused on 'Spring Flowers' so all of the crafts and activities were centered around this theme.
 We got to go inside the old farmhouse and hear stories and sing songs about Spring time. There were some lovely young ladies who were hosting our group and they did a great job.
 Miko was the youngest one there and at first I wondered if he was too young to get much out of it but he LOVED everything about it!  He was very well behaved, sat quietly on my lap during stories and songs. When we went outside he was absolutely enthralled with the flowers, grass, and of course the well/watering hole.
 The crafts were definitely too advanced for him, but I certainly had fun 'helping' him.
 His favourite part, by far, was this tiny pot we got to decorate and fill with soil and a few seeds.  Miko was sooooo excited it is hard to describe it with words! He carried that thing around so very carefully, with this beaming look of pride on his face.
We both had such a great time that I came home hoping to sign up for the boat themed class in June but, to my dismay, it was already filled :(  Anyway, we are on a waiting list and I have my fingers crossed.
