Oh my! We’ve had some goings on here, but it’s been mostly sickness! Ugh! Three weeks of coughing and nose blowing and more coughing and fevers and doctors. The older two have rebounded and are back in form, but it turns out Wigeon, who up until now has shown no signs of getting teeth, has decided to produce both bottom and top incisors at the same time! Poor little girl. She’s been so miserable.
In other goings on, I ordered seeds! I’m determined to try and grow some veggies this year. Although it would be very much like me to rip out the trampoline and install a few raised beds and never use them, I am going to take it slowly and reasonably and start with a Square Foot Garden. I really like this one that I found on pinterest. I think it will be the right size for a beginner who has had only minimal success with gardening. (Nod to the time I planted zucchini and only got one gigantic zucchini from the entire plant.) I’ll keep you posted.
Even with all the sickness and teething, school is going well. We started new blocks last Monday. Math for Pintail and a Local Geography and History block for Teal. I really had to spend a lot of time preparing for the Geography and History block, but it has been enjoyable and is going well so far. I’m looking forward to the upcoming field trips and will post a recap of the block when we finish!
Tomorrow is Wigeon’s birthday. She will be one! My how the time has flown.
