We have a new homeschooler in the house - Selah. Selah has done pretty well in K and 1st grade at school, but she hasn't really loved it. Since Christmas, she has told us several times that "she doesn't really like elementary school". Once I finished my tutoring year at CC, there didn't seem to be any real reason to make her finish the school year. I pulled her out right at spring break. We celebrated her first day home with donuts on the porch; she has been so happy this last week at home.
I gave Selah and Bella the job of making their own PB and J; they were thrilled. Elijah, however, neither likes PB, nor the idea of making his own food, so he observed.
We started weeding the garden yesterday; it's amazing how many weeds spring up in the beds.
We brought out the goats for help trimming the tall grass around the bed. I am so amazed how grass can grow so well through the soil cloth, yet can't grown on half the yard.
Yesterday's weeded bed on the left - today's yet to be done on the right -
My birthday request this year is a walkway around the beds, so we can keep the tall grass from growing higher than the plants. (I like practical gifts!)
