Yesterday was spent working in the garden with Farmer Dad .He decided
while getting coffee to take a day off from work!
We planted corn,tomatoes,more lettuce,tomatoes,peppers,built a trellis for the peas,
planted more tomatoes...we did take "swing" breaks with Princess every once
in a while. Princess and I weeded flower beds and under the fig tree
and she picked rocks from the garden .These are pictures she took,
including a picture of me weeding and of
the doves that wake us up every morning.I took the picture of her
resting after weeding.
We all got done just in time for the thunderstorm.
We had dinner and then played
"doll house" together while the storm raged outside.
All in all it was a lovely day.

Princess took some great pictures. The photo of the pigeons is great. Wow. The girl has talent. :) Your garden looks very organized and purposeful. It sounds like you've been busy. The storm brought very chilly weather so we have spent the last two days inside.

N- P loves using the camera and always gets a different shot than I would have taken. We've been very busy, and it has gotten cold here too!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
