It was a very good day and my little partner and I worked on getting the garden done. It is getting late in the season and we still have not done much but planted some seeds in the greenhouse. We plan on growing vegetables for salad and strawberries for homemade milkshakes.
My helper is growing so fast and can already use a camping saw fairly well. After some time on the saw I had him drive nails with a hammer. I was surprised at how well he was at using tools.
He is going to be quite the challenger as well. That is fine with me, if he can have use of the skill. He likes to question everything and does not leave any disciplining unchallenged with a remark. I have to smile inside as I am sure he will be very well adapted at taking care of himself.
This is all one can hope for when trying to provide some guidance to a young mind, ready to challenge the world.
Of course his younger sister has dubbed our new greenhouse, the “green toy house”, where she brought her “babies to visit” yesterday.
Today was a good day.
