Mimi's Summer Day Camp - Day Four
We had a VERY busy day on Thursday. We started early in the garden while it was still cool enough to stand it. KT checked out the bean tee-pee and still thinks it okay. She's an easy to please critic....that's all I have to say.
She and Grumpy checked out some soil in one of the raised bed to see if there were any worms....there were...and KT fed some to the chickens! She's pretty good about icky things.
We pulled all her beans and four of her little pumpkins for her mom. KT's crops are looking good!!
Next we took our weekly trip to the library. She knows every letter in this puzzle, and words that start with them. That's Clifford's muzzle there in the background. He comes to sit at her table every time we go.
Here's she's checking out a book on giants....animals, that is. She really likes books about real things, in the non-fiction area.
Then we came home and glued her leaves to paper and then pressed them between waxed paper (Mimi had to do that with the iron.) Then we made a little book with all of her leaves.
After lunch it was swim time! KT got a new swim ring with Minnie and Daisy Duck!
She had a lot of fun playing with all of her swim things and the hose. It was pretty hot today!
Then Grumps took us in to town and we had ice cream (well, it was frozen yogurt, but who can tell the difference?!) It's good for us!
