We got together at Erica’s house again today and had another great time. Our boys match up so well and the girls and I adore Erica and her boys. 🙂
Here’s a bit of the fun we had today….
We got to meet their new baby chicks
And even dug up some tasty bugs to feed them!
Erica made a fantastic lunch
…that we followed with some outside play.
The kids get along so well!
I love how the big kids take care of the little ones.
And I loved these shots of Erica’s boys. 🙂
We also did a little bit of Circle Time and played “telephone.” I brought a classroom idea book for April and it had a reader’s theater play about raining food that the kids read with much giggling. They played “Chutes and Ladders,” watched TV, talked, played, got injured, got better and generally wore themselves out nicely!
And I got to yap with Erica, which is always great fun for me. 🙂
Tonight I made a really elaborate lasagna with about 6 cups of assorted veggies, tomato sauce, homemade alfredo sauce and tons of various kinds of cheese. It barely fit in the pan and even my picky eater Annalee had fourths! Even better, there’s lots for lunch tomorrow.
The kids and I finally got some seeds started that I’ve meant to do for a month. We planted cherry tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, cilantro, sweet basil and an sugarbaby watermelons. I know it’s late but better late than never, right???? (Fingers crossed!) And it’s better than too early, which I’ve done many times and ended up with leggy plants that keeled over long before it was warm enough to transplant them.
There’s a reason I don’t start seeds most of the time any more. I’m a bit of a train wreck. 😉
On the agenda for tomorrow… cleaning up our wetlands for Earth Day, tilling part of the garden and planting some early crops like lettuce and beans, getting some exercise outside, cleaning (really! I must this time!) and finding some fun way to do a bunch of math! And whatever else comes up….
