We’ve gone a couple of times to the garden so far. I know, it has only been two weeks since school let out – but the weather has been nice so far so we didn’t want to waste any time. Much warmer weather is expected this week. I am hoping to go to a different garden location sometime soon, but today (at least) will be filled with more spring cleaning and planning for the summer. It may seem rather boring, but when you are going full-steam ahead all the time with school, it is actually nice to have things back the way you wish they always were 🙂
Depending on the kids putting things where they belong when you ask for help proves fruitless. I will often ask one to put the scissors away and they will just move it from one spot to the other – not where it belongs. So then you have to ask them to put it away – to find it moved from one spot to the other. Sad thing is, “where they belong” is only a few steps further away from that spot, but it seems like so much time is saved by not getting it there. So thinking that since we have “all hands on deck” makes the house neater is definitely not anything more than a dream and while I clean one room, it seems they are pulling apart one each 🙂 This is one of those times when I would say I wish there was more of me to go around… but I digress. On to the pictures!
