We took some rhubarb to my neighbor. Dane had never tasted rhubarb before, but he liked it. He wanted to make a rhubarb pie so we did. He helped pick, clean, chop, and mix the filling. He helped make the pie crust but I rolled it out and put it in the oven. Conclusion: we make a good bakery team.
Since I just had the deck refinished, the deck furniture needed to be hauled out and hosed down. Using the hose does not count as work or a chore so I had a very happy helper.
We did a bit of garden decorating. I picked up the insulators at the flea market.
We took some walks. I found a treasure box for him out in the garage so he would have a place to store the interesting rocks and other bits of treasure he might find along the road side. He has taken on the family disgust with those who litter though.
It has a key!We did another craft project--a tin can robot. Unfortunately there was a minor hot glue gun mishap.
Grandma got tired of the wrestle on shoes and then tie them routine, so we went shopping for a new pair of Crocs for the summer ahead. Maybe his feet won't grow so fast that these will actually make it to actual summer.
We had stopped at Bristol Pond on the way to my house. On the way home, we stopped at Bristol Memorial Park.
For the rest of the trip Dane said a good way to kill time would be for me to give him multiplication and division problems to solve. I said that I didn't know they taught that math in first grade. He said they don't but he couldn't understand why since it was "wicked easy."
He had to get up for school on Tuesday morning, but I slept in til 8:30.
