talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

June egg hunt




We found a local source for eggs and not only went to pick them up with a friend-- we got to pick them out, too! Chickens, as it turns out, don't lay eggs in wholly expected places. It requires a careful collector to find all of them. Fortunately, Fiona and Nora had a patient teacher to show them all the likely hidey holes.

They also got to see pear trees, plum trees, apple trees, two large vegetable gardens, and a shade garden, one renegade cat and two happy dogs along the way. It was quite a fun farm trip! We learned about the benefits of the color red for tomatoes, about "June drop" in fruit trees, and why some plants had netting over their tops. We also virtually watched sweet peas growing on the vine. They're fast!

Our garden has a long way to go, but it does give us an appreciation for the way things grow to visit such a large and thriving farm. Thanks, Miss G. We're looking forward to visiting again!

Jen,

Where did you go?

Have you been out to the farm on Halter Rd. in Leo? It should be time to pick blueberries soon. :-)

Jen and Ian,

I just discovered your blog. Your girls are adorable and you have so much fun! I don't know if you remember me. I used to work with you at TCPL. I was Kristina Daily then. - Kristina

I wonder if Ian went to collect eggs? He and Mike used to love that, in much the same way cats love swimming.
