What’s the Story: included

Last Updated on

Yesterday we made a scarecrow.

This, in itself, was a rather bizarre, unexpected and very entertaining activity. A last minute addition to what was already a particularly busy day!

We had a lot of fun. My husband (with a little help from the kids…!) made a great scarecrow – the one in the stripy top :) We met neighbours we knew, and a couple we didn’t. We ate chilli and drank hot apple cider and chatted. We may have acquired a play kitchen for the wee girl?! As you do…

The boys love their scarecrow, and it is now sitting on our porch, looking very a little bit scary.

It may seem odd to attach significance to the making of a scarecrow, but for us it was about more than simply heading over to a neighbours on a sunny autumn morning and making scarecrows.

It was the first time we had been invited to an impromptu gathering of neighbours.

We know our neighbours: we know their names, the names of their children, what Grade their kids are in. We say hello. We chat. We walk to school together.

We have been made to feel very welcome.

But yesterday, we felt included too.

  1. Wow, that sounds like fun! Obviously, in Dubai, we don’t see any scarecrows (in fact, I thought people don’t make them anymore), so this was an interesting read! #MagicMoments
