It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

The weather has been beautiful for the last 2 days!
Saturday we had a yard sale, fortunately after the first
hour, my niece took Princess to her house to play.
Today we worked in the yard and played in the yard.
Friends came over to "pick their own" from the garden,
and we had a lovely visit.
We also placed many of the shells and rocks we have painted
in her "Butterfly Garden"
I will post a couple of pictures.

Thanks, we copied the idea from our
local "Butterfly Garden". All of
the local girl and boy scout troops
painted rocks and shells and benches
to line the paths in the park.
P picked out rocks and shells she has collected and we paint them every once in a while.Once our basket was full of them, we set them out.:-)
She also picked out the plants
she wanted to grow by looking at the
symbols on the tag (butterflies/sun)at the plant center.
The money came from some outside toys she outgrew that we sold off on Craig's List.

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 .
