The Weekend

On Friday night we had a lovely evening playing at our friend, Kerri's, house. Nothing better than pizza, brownies, and beer (for the grown-ups) and watching the kids play together.

Saturday morning Winnie helped Adam and I in the garden. We pulled out dead stuff, pulled up all the tomato plants and deposited them in the compost. Dug potatoes, sweet potatoes, and the last of the carrots, and put them away in our make shift larder (AKA brown box with dirt in between layers of root veggies) for the winter. Winnie had fun finding fat juicy worms to play with. We transplanted some strawberry runners to increase our strawberry patch size, and spent much time staring at the garden plot deciding how to lay it out next spring. There is still work to be done in the coming days, but it is better and closer to ready for the winter.

Saturday evening Zhara camped out at her Girl Scout troop's first camp out of the year. Brrrr, glad I passed up helping out with that one. But she had a lot of fun hanging out with her best friends and roasting hot dogs and marshmallows.

The boys and Winnie headed down with us to grandma and papa's farm for the evening where we went on a hayride with their good friend's, had chili dogs from over the fire pit, and made smores. Mmmmm. Fun was had by all and there were many sleepy, smoky-smelling kids the next morning.

Sunday we had fun at church. I taught Sunday school with Ms. Kerri. We talked about feelings and danced and read about the Earth. I do love the UU church. The kids got to go to main service, as the RE teachers (yep, me) were being honored for their work with the kids.

We had a great weekend and are looking forward to a fun day.

Angus is at preschool now doing science experiments with eggs, and when we pick him up we are going to Antioch Park for a picnic and play with our best friends. Later Zhara has guitar, and there are pork ribs in the slow cooker for BBQ later tonight. Mmmm, we love Fall.
