Over the years we have had varying levels of success when it comes to growing our own food. Weather, travel, sporadic interest and rabbits have all wreaked havoc with our attempts. The girls have both shown renewed interest in growing the things they like, both veggies and flowers, and today they planted seeds. With any luck, this time everything with be in our favor and we’ll have a little harvest come the end of summer.


Esme had her second of two dance competitions today. When asked what her favorite part of the competitions was she immediately answered, “the dressing room!” She clarified, “I like being with my team and friends and the older girls. We just have fun!”

These girls performed with big smiles, did their best and came home with a couple of trophies. A job well done!
