We are Up North…someone was in a pickle with daycare. At ten and almost eight they are too little to stay by themselves. BUT they don’t require much care either. Basically they just need a warm body..and Far Guy and I qualify.
We watched football practice this morning, and then we watched them mow the football field. These are things we never see back in the sticks where we live. I trimmed the roses out front and pulled some weeds. Noah and I went for a walk..I walked he rollerbladed. "Grandma did you rollerblade when you were a kid?" Nope..sorry they weren’t invented yet.. "Bummer." Noah told me this morning that he thinks he might be a Veterinarian when he grows up..cause animals always seem to like him. I told him that is because he is always so kind and gentle to animals.
Adam is in the "Why" stage..we did some reading out loud..he doesn’t try to make up words like his Mother did..but he struggles with sounding them out. Todays hard words were decorate and decision. He will begin second grade next week. I believe I was still reading "See Dick, see Jane, see Spot run." when I was his age. He doesn’t seem to enjoy reading..he is the first of our grands that is not a reader. He will probably be a famous writer someday.
I was really bored, so I went into the pantry and rearranged all the canned goods so they are all right side up and facing the right direction in neat rows. I have never had a can of Cream of Potato or Cream of Broccoli Soup in my pantry ..ever. I wonder what they use them in..and Spinach..I didn’t think anyone ever bought canned Spinach.
