Sunday after a nice afternoon with the family I came home to this mound on my patio. Needless to say, as much as I like ants and think they do much good in the world, I don't want them three feet from my back door building a mound. So I medicated them and hopefully this bunch will fail to return and WILL NOT invade my house this summer.
After a busy weekend, staying at home seemed like the best thing to do today. The lad and I did some gardening together. My young digger had a huge amount of fun moving and then replanting my parsley and chervil patch. Who woulda thought that it would be so much fun digging holes and plopping a plant in it. The dirt was just a flying!!!
Off to London town! The lad did a wee bit of schooling and then headed out with gramma in the afternoon. He went with us first to fill out his application for a passport as we'll be heading to PA at the end of May.
A day of schooling at home. Thought admittedly we got to a really late start. We were all total slugs, so much so the lad ran out of time to get all his schooling done, so he promised me he would do his math the next day.
Off to the Alymer Dairy Museum today. The lad promised to do his math on the way there but ended up doing right before bed. The Museum was pretty good. Filled with memorabilia but the staff also put on a good program for the children and youth that attended... making butter, ice cream, learning about cartooning and more. See look... I made a sponge bob!
Today was co-op day so off we went for a morning of learning, me teaching Zentangles, Hubby teaching gym, and the lad learning about natural disasters and Biblical Feasts.
We learned the spider tag is not as fun as one might think.
