We started off with two chapters of Little House- it's due today, and someone is waiting for it, so we get to finish it up and go to the library.
Maddie and I worked on another basket.
A square one, this time.
There was practicing writing
Lego Star Wars
visiting with the quail
Quite a while back (early spring? last fall?) I had an idea that I wanted us to have a Lunch in the Garden. Trev did what we called "a tasting" last fall with leaves, and I thought that going outside to eat with nothing but maybe a tool would be a nice way to have lunch.
We took a few other things... a platter, salt, and a blanket... but it was a lovely lunch.
Brandywines, cucumber, raspberries, sweet pepper, pears, and freshly picked peppermint for tea. We ate and drank 'til our tummies were all filled up. I would have picked grapes if I would have remembered, but maybe for dinner....
While we ate we finished the last two chapters of Little House in the Big Woods.
Trev plays on the computer, Maddie plays with the rainforest scene we picked up at the thrift store.
Then a bit more of that went on... Mama with a book, Madd with books and imaginary play, Trev on the 'puter.
We came together again to discuss what was for dinner later-- and decided upon a pizza pie.
All will help with that, of course.
Maddie painted her nails.
With Mama's real nail polish.
All By Herself.
"Okay, Mom... I did it without spilling," she says, after her Mama told her that was something that was for the two of us.
"Pleeeeeeease can I throw it up in the air?"
So she did.
Without dropping it.
We made our pies.
And played math bingo (as Trev calls it) with dominoes while the first one was in the oven.
And then checkers, while we ate.
Trev won again... fair and square. After a record length (long) game.
Looks like all that is left is dog-walking (Maddie likes to take Annabelle around the house and yard)
waiting for Daddy
and our trip to the library.
A very delicious day.
An' prob'ly we'll see you tomorrow.
