It’s another week of our Country Kids link party. Welcome to readers and writer friends old and new!

Country Kids was started by Coombe Mill Farm’s fabulous Fiona and is now co-hosted by Louise from Little Hearts Big Love, Helena from Queen of Collage and me at Kids of the Wild.

We’re maintaining this lovely community of outdoor family bloggers to share activities and inspiration and help get you and the kids outdoors more.

This Week at Kids of the Wild

Autumn came in with a gale yesterday and since a flight delay meant we didn’t get home until nearly 2am on Monday, this hasn’t been a very productive week’s writing! There was harvest festival at school and a parent lunch too, doctor’s visits, Cubs, dancing and trips to the vet so sadly very little blogging.

I’m also taking on the newly created role of Outdoor Adventure Round-up Editor at BritMums so I’ll be looking for some of your top posts to share over there every month. Additionally look out for the Animal Tales linky which I’m taking over in the new year from A Green & Rosie Life. It’s going to be busy on the blog! Watch this space…

Enjoy the autumn colours and watch out for more posts in the coming week.
