Cheers to Friday and the kick off to a long weekend for my family! It’s been an exciting week that opened with a couple of cool sunny days getting me giddy for fall and promises to end with more sunny cool days. Sandwiched in the middle were a few rainy, gloomy days which really make it easy to decide to bake and cuddle all day with the lamps on 🙂
This week we:
Lost our whole corn crop to the squirrels. If we grow it again next year we will have to figure out a way to keep those pesky rodents at bay.
Cleared out the tomato, green bean, and pea plants that were turning brown in the garden.
Planted new grass seed in the areas of the yard that the pool and slide sat too long, leaving big brown circles and triangles.
Baked, colored, cut, danced, sang, and played a lot
I will leave you this week with a thought about children’s questions.
There are two things… to be noticed about the inquiries of little children. The questions are often posed in rapid succession, as if the child were not so much seeking information as just wanting to hear an answering voice. Also, the child seems to listen with more pleasure to a tentative answer, spoken with love and warmth in the voice, than to an assured and categorical reply given in a matter-of-fact tone. When little children pour out their endless questions, they are seeking something much deeper than the mere satisfaction of curiosity. They are seeking to bring around them the living tones of the human voice.
What did you do this week?
