"Of all the wonderful things in the wonderful universe of God, nothing seems to me more surprising than the planting of a seed in the blank earth and the result thereof." ~ John Muir
The tiny Jack-be-Littles are growing in the garden at last!
I'm half-wondering if there might have been a mix-up at the farm - in all their creamy whiteness, these look like they might be Baby Boos? Of course I've never grown Jack-be-Littles before so maybe they start out pale like this and slowly turn golden? Truth be told, we grew these from seedlings, not seeds, so it's a bit of a mystery ... a fun one to watch unfold!
Well, thank goodness it's Friday; it's been a good week, but a looong one. In fact, I'm just a little bleary-eyed this morning ... I was out at a planning meeting with my homeschooling group last night. (Actually, a pre-planning meeting for THE planning meeting in September, an annual tradition. More on that later.) But even getting to bed at a reasonable hour each night, I have found that having to be out of the house so early this week - all of us dressed, packed and prepared for a full day at VBS - has been a real challenge! I'm realizing how much I relish our normally slow mornings. How do you non-homeschoolers do it, lol? :)
Speaking of VBS - last day today, and boy, that went fast! It looks to be rainy, again. The inside activities are not affected of course, but we at the Hyperspeed Games station on the lawn get, well - wet. And a bit cold. But as long as we don't hear thunder, it's outside we stay ...
That's all right. One more day to go, and, hey, maybe the weather folks will be wrong. (It's been known to happen after all.) Anyway, the kids have had a blast at PowerLab this week, and that's what counts.
I hope you all have a great weekend (if I don't check in again before it starts). Keep cool and be safe and I'll see you all again sometime soon ...
