We have had a nice day - if all could be like this, I think I'd be in heaven. The boys and I started with gardening and then actually got through our morning lessons with very little fuss (ds#1 didn't fuss at all ... ds#2 did a bit, but was still able to finish; it probably helped that I told him that if he didn't finish, he would have to finish when their friend came over ). Our neighbor came down and hung out with us, and then went with us to Lowe's for some soil/manure for the garden (which was totally cool because not only does he help with the boys - he's 16 - but he helped load the van and then unload the van ). Now they are all playing Lego's with ds#1's friend from around the block. I still have to go work more in the garden, but I'm waiting for the sun to go down a bit.
I'm also determined to do some science today - I have a little experiment on decomposition (basically burying a small piece of food and a small piece of plastic in dirt, keeping it damp like compost, and then seeing after a week which looks like it is decomposing) and a book I want to read. Then, we are going to practice "reusing" by making paper.
