- Keep a good secret.
Jump, Paddle, climb out, repeat
She was a different case.
She only jumped when I coaxed her into it
By saying that people were watching and they all wanted to see her jump.
The girl loves to perform. The other stipulations were
that I had to catch her,
Which meant to float directly below her landing path
And be pummeled on the top of the head
my her bulging toddler belly, I had to count to three
At least four times,
by the time the line had reached half a dozen kids long,
I would have to say:
"Lauren Joelle, you jump now!"
And she did.
Not the typical approach I would use,
But I knew she needed to get over the frightened hump
Of thinking that neither her life vest or her Mama would save her life.
She was happily surprised to find that
When she jumped right on the top of Mama's head,
Only Mama ended up going under and sucking water.
Lauren asked me to do this.
This is brave for Lauren
She is usually like a kitten when it comes to water.
She has been known to get upset for running through a sprinkler and actually getting wet.
She asked so politely
which made it double cute.
It was something like:
" May somebody please pour this on my head?"
Silas learned to ride a bike without training wheels!
Lauren went from a tricycle to a bike with training wheels!
Both of them quickly learned and became champs at their new skill
While we were camping last weekend.
I am hoping to catch up and post camping pictures soon.
I went to the Wednesday market for produce,
Then, later that night,
two different families shared their summer bounty with us.
I was in hog heaven.
This picture only shows the stuff that does not need to be refrigerated!
I feel a great challenge to eat or preserve it all.
So far I have made yellow plum jam,
dehydrated the tomato and then packed them into olive oil, garlic, and herbs.
We used almost all of the fresh spinach and all of the peaches in our green smoothies.
Despite all of the produce,
I think I need to get more tomatoes somehow.
I am addicted to the sun dried in oil tomatoes.
It looks so pretty in the jars,
and smells more appetizing than it looks
I will share the recipe soon!
Have a great weekend!
