Princess is recovering , the more painful tooth fell out, the other one is still loose.Her lip is less swollen and less purple.We stayed close to home all weekend..We worked in our home garden weeding,watering, and harvesting

and started our community garden plot..hopefully our eggplant will produce better
there with the full sun.

Farmer Dad walked her over to the gazebo by the pond and she joined in

some break dancing with some teen aged boys that were there "hip- hopping"(her words)
The boys let her have a turn and clapped and cheered her on.
Princess created with play doh and Legos...
Cleaning the aquarium on Monday,lead to a run to the pet store for new filters,
which lead to new fish...

We also cleaned out the crabitat.There was also some scrabble playing

My little girl is growing up.

Sorry about her teeth hurting. You guys have so much fun!

Lynn said...

I'm happy to see she's recovering. It'll probably be sore for awhile. :( Your gardens look awesome! Could I come over and help you? :) Well, not that you need any help, but I would love to be there in person!

Glad Princess is resting at home and feeling better.

She has so many interesting and creative things to do and see in your "school room" !!!

Thank you all.:-)
Becky, F.D. was just teaching her, but she picked up the rules and concept pretty quickly, and was making actual words (not big ones)
toy,cafe,face (fit the board better) and more..I was teary eyed
while making dinner and listening to them play.
Lynn..Come on Up!!!

Poor thing! I am behind on my readings, so I missed the first post. I'm glad she is healing quickly! I know that hurt something awful!

looks like a fun productive weekend with lots of learning happening. We tend to stick close to home anyways- wiht the cost of sutff who can go anywhere anyway:-)- and it seems we get so much done when we do. YOur gardens look wonderful, I love eggplant but have never had luck growing it, cucumbers don;t grow for me either.

Glad she lost the tooth that was in pain bet she felt better almost right away. Give her a hug and a big milkshake:-)

make sure you take lots of photos (once her mouth is completely better) of the missing tooth spaces :)
Did the tooth fairy come by?

I've been unplugged for awhile, so I had to check back a couple of posts to understand the story. Poor Princess! Hats off to her for being such a brave young lady. I'm glad to hear that the recovery is going well. Hugs to all of you!

This is my first time on your blog and my first time witnessing your amazing garden. I can't wait to see what pops up this summer!

Kate in NJ said...

Thank you all.:-)
Yes, A....the Tooth Fairy has been
(and another visit is expected soon) and fairy dust and 50 cents was left under P's pillow.

I am popping over from Becky's page. I always loved people from Jersey because one of my sweetest friends is from there : ). I also love your shore! It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Your garden looks awesome! I love the song that is playing! SO pretty!

Happy to see that she is doing a little bit better. She really does look cute with the missing teeth though. If I haven't said it before, I am asparagus green with envy! You are pulling out some wonderful produce.
♥, Susan

You have your own farmers' market in your back yard. ;) (All I have managed not to kill is oregano.)

P playing Scrabble is very impressive!
