I made the trip to my daughter's and took her and the kids out for a birthday lunch. Saturday, Kristen and her dad did a walkathon to end child abuse. They raised around $400. Great job!
We made two trips to the school playground, which is right behind their house, to swing, slide, climb. Kristen started fourth grade this past week and Dane started preschool--so summer vacation is over. The pool was closed even though the temperature had climbed up into the 80's, where it promises to stay for this week. Let's just say baths were needed on Sunday night.
Kristen's elementary school has a vegetable garden. Her class planted corn last June and she pointed out her very own stalk. It was a good looking garden--grape tomatoes, corn, squash, pole beans, cabbage, peppers, and beautiful basil. There are also a number of apple trees on the school grounds. I think it's great that they have that relationship with their lunches.
