The Mom is actually hoping to get to her garden today. That is, AFTER the huge pile of dishes are done, then the baking (one ‘old diet’ thing, one ‘new-NON diet’ thing), then probably taking the resident techies to buy something… Oh, and we don’t mean planting the garden! First you have to decide WHAT to plant. Now that we can see all the things that are growing well, and what spaces are left (not many), the decision shouldn’t be too hard.
We have lots of Spring things that grow, and can be picked (Lily of the Valley and such), and for the Summer it’s the ever-wonderful Lavender; The Mom keeps thinking we need something “Fall”. She did get several plants that colour up nicely for the Fall–but not ones that you can pick very well. What we have to keep in mind is that our garden out back is very SHADY… do gourds need a lot of sun? Probably. Well, it’s good to not have absolutely everything set in your mind, of what you want–that way you can be open to things in the plant store that you didn’t know were available.
The Mom enjoyed more parent-amazement last night, about Club kids being able to memorize scripture verses so easily. She had brought one of the A-Z memory verse prizes to Small Group, since that little girl was absent when they were presented. Her father tested her on a couple of verses… he obviously hadn’t realized she’d been doing this–she even (like many of the other kids) knew the hardest, longest one of the verses (for the letter ‘X’). He was quite impressed. In fact (have we told you this before? The Mom has been talking about it so much): most of the kids knew the most difficult verse better than the simple ones, because of the demo lesson she did. Amazing how easy it is when you know the meaning of the verse!

Walk to Rivendell: This is where they’re riding the wagon to the Ferry… but we’ll run along beside it, for better exercise! ;)
