May has a way of slipping by me.
But the garden is planted and growing quickly.
The chickens will be leaving tomorrow (they are 9 weeks old already!)
The bees are buzzing along. I added another body a few weeks ago but I’ve not been able to check them due to the rainy weather.
My 4-year-old granddaughter was able to stay with me all last week. I called it Camp Grandma and we had so much fun. (I did anyway)
Here are some highlights of Camp Grandma.
We visited the lake house where we spent the day collecting roly polyies.
We rode horses (although she told me he was a little slow)
We visited a Tiger and Lion refuge with baby Luke.
We played in the sand
We went fishing
but found more roly polies instead
We ended the week with a trip to the Buffalo River for decoration day, picnics and playing in the river.
We had to travel through the forest to get to the river. Fortunately, I had a couple of great trailblazers to lead me.
We found a painter set up down the river and watched her paint
We found a huge beech tree we just had to hug
When the river is up, canoers enjoy the swift currents, clear water, and breathtaking bluffs.
For the end of camp talent show, Hallie did car seat tricks
and sang Do You Want to Build a Snowman whilst holding her pin wheel out the window.
She unanimously won the competition.
I love being a Grandma!
