Another weekend, come and gone....

I have not had a moment to update here over the last couple of days.
We had relatives visiting from out of state, and a baby shower and a birthday party to attend.
We also needed to hit the shore, which we did on Friday.
The weather was perfect, not too hot, water was warm.
Friday night we had dinner with my Aunt and Uncle in the restaurant of their hotel
while listening to some excellent jazz. Princess had a blast and only asked once to "move things along".
She had been promised a "tour", and did not want to miss it.
Saturday I had a baby shower, which meant about 5 hours child free.
Farmer Dad took her down to visit friends for a swim.
Saturday night we watched some pre-season football, although I was too beat to enjoy it.
My Aunt wanted "everyone" to get together and watch the game, but I just cannot deal with
too many activities in one day, and for once I did not allow myself to be pushed into anything.
Sunday we had a birthday party for one of the girls in our homeschool group.
It was another lovely day in the Garden State.Princess fell asleep on the way home
tired and happy after a day spent swimming and playing with her friends.
We hung out playing with the party favor, "giggle goggles" (huge hit around here)
Tomorrow we will be canning..I have two tons of tomatoes in my kitchen right now,
and they must be dealt with.

Wow you had a very busy weekend. It sounds like you had lots of fun though. Good to see that you could put pictures up. We missed seeing P. I love her hat in that by the way, to cute.

Busy week and lots of fun. Friends, food and swimming, what fun. Oh I wish I could just have a few tomotoes. You do sound like you have quite a bit of work.

I love the photo of P at the top of the post. She really looks like she is growing up.

I too cannot handle too many activities in one day.

Good luck with the tomatoes. We've had such a puny harvest from our tomato plants. It has been cold, cloudy and dry and Si picked green tomatoes off one of the plants yesterday. He was very pleased with himself.

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 .
