We spent a whole day at home, preparing for our upcoming adventures. Since we have been at the farm quite a bit in the past few days, both kids seemed eager to settle in with Legos today. This is what they came up with:
While Sydney tackled the garden beds, I tried to make good on some of the farm veggies that he’s packed into our fridge. Lady cream peas with vegetarian sausage, zucchini bread, and strawberry-and-arugula salad helped us clear out at least some of the greens.
Tomorrow we’re all driving to Ohio to drop Katherine off at choral camp at Rosedale (Sydney’s old college). This is her first time on her own, but thankfully we know a number of other kids and adults who will be there, so that should make things easier. In typical Katherine fashion, she started packing quite a while ago and kept a list on the fridge of items that had yet to be added.
I’m heading to Virginia on Tuesday for work, so Sydney and Nathaniel will be in charge of the house, the cats, and the farm. After some priming by me, Nathaniel is seriously excited to be a real farm hand this week. Little does he know that it’s going to be 90 degrees for the next few days . . .
