This photo was taken at Bonus Boy’s first Harvest Festival which took place last week. He sang songs, he did the actions, he was chosen with his best friend to push the wheelbarrow of salt dough fruit and veg around the circle of children and parents. He was about ten feet tall and he grinned from ear to ear. When the children had done their stuff the parents and friends who had come to smile/weep and watch were served a mug of vegetable soup. Bonus Boy and his new classmates sat on the knees of the people who had come to see them and shared the soup. It was perfect.
Mr Thinly Spread couldn’t attend unfortunately so he de-briefed his boy that evening.
Mr TS: What did you do at school today?
Mr TS: Oh. Did anything special happen?
Mr TS: Did someone visit you at school today?
BB: OH, YES! Mummy came and we had soup
Mr TS: Soup? At school? How lucky! Why did you have soup?
BB: Um…it was Harvest Vegetable.
And so begins another family favourite saying. I have always loved Harvest Festival, I shall love Harvest Vegetable even more!
