This week around this little Garden State Homeschool..


Friday found us Great Grandma-sitting.
Cousin S. dropped her off in the morning,
and we paid her bills, brought her to the bank
and stopped at a yard sale around the corner
after picking up lunch.We bought a trike for
princess, and an old kitchen table and chairs.
After we brought her home, we went to Target
for a few items, milk, cookies, gummy worms.
Princess and I spent the afternoon playing together
until Farmer Dad got home from work. He had plans
to jam with his friend, so we made plans to see our friends.
It was a nice evening filled with tree climbing,Wii playing,
bike riding and laughter.Today, we spent time up at the
Community Garden plot picking green beans,watering
and visiting with other gardeners.Farmer Dad went with me to
pick up the kitchen table (photos to come soon)
and another friend stopped by for some more jamming.
We had a nice dinner of green beans and pirogies, while
princess napped on the couch.

I am so envious of the backyard you guys have. Living in the apartment there is not really any place that we can do that. So for now I will live through you guys ok. LOL :)

I like pirogies. Did you make them ahead of time or did you use a frozen brand? My husband (not Polish) makes them from scratch with my sister each Christmas.

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 .
