One of my goals for July (yes, I’m posting this a month late) was to visit a Farmer’s Market! And we did it – with fancy (and very tasty) honey and delicious blueberries to show for it!
And a hit-and-run on our car in the parking lot. But I don’t feel like that is anything to complain about, considering we escaped damage from Hurricane Irene this weekend. Our street flooded and trees lost branches, but nothing fell on the house or car, and we never lost power for more than a few minutes at a time. We don’t have a basement to flood. My sister as well as my brother and sister-in-law who live closer to Boston were all fine also.
The kids were somewhat confused participants in a reading of The Gigantic Turnip – complete with a very large but not quite gigantic turnip:
Not surprisingly, my kids were most excited about the craft: painting pots. Surprisingly, Lily was the only child to NOT get paint on her clothes! Look at that concentration!
Maybe I need to venture beyond small towns?
My kids learned about a new vegetable (the turnip), honeycomb (in the honey we purchased), and they got to try a couple of locally made cheeses.
Did you visit a Farmer’s Market this summer? Were you in the path of Hurricane Irene this weekend? Our neighboring states of Vermont and New York were hit hard!
