The last week has been very hot and dry and the kids wanted to go out and have some fun, but first they had jobs to do, of course 😉
Joe helped by wheel-barrowing manure to the spot where we’re going to grow sweetcorn.
Then it needed raking in before we could dig some holes and plant the little sweetcorn plants.
It was very hot work. Joe knows he did a great job.
Meanwhile, getting quite hot and a bit fed up, Caleb had found a really good hiding place in the chives and thought it was about time someone came to look for him.
When Joe came to find him they both disappeared off somewhere together…and I’m still looking for them. ……
“She’ll never find us in here…
..and even better, let’s wear green next time 🙂 “, chuckled Caleb.
After much calling and searching, much to their amusement, I eventually found them and put them straight to work in the polytunnel. Now that IS a hot job.
The tomatoes and chillies are starting to flower and they need weeding and watering and feeding now.
The boys set to the task of weeding and Mum filled a watering can with tomato feed.
“It’s too hot in here. Shall we go outside and play and cool down a bit ?” suggested Joe. Caleb never needs much persuasion to go and play outside.
The wheelbarrow was cleaned up and pressed into service as a kidmobile.
First Joe pushed Caleb past the lavender, then Caleb pushed Joe around the potatoes…
Then Joe pushed Caleb past the strawberries, but got a bit distracted for a second when he saw real, green baby strawberries growing where the flowers had been,
and it only took a moment’s loss of concentration for him to run over a stone and lose control …
..and send Caleb tumbling right out of the wheelbarrow onto his head..
“Oh sorry Caleb, here, let me help you up. Are you hurt ? ”
“No, it was fun. Let’s go again ! 🙂 ”
Lots of turns later it was time to go home. Two tired little boys headed for the car.
“Are you sure you’re ok, Caleb? We’re still best friends aren’t we ?”
Happy Bank Holiday Everyone ! 🙂
In the last few months a few of the later, pale vinyl Gotz kids have come to live with us. Usually the first thing I do when a new kid arrives is change them out of their clothes and store them away, partly to keep them safe and partly because I don’t usually like the original clothes they come in. But these later Gotz dolls have really well-made outfits and they suit them very nicely so today I asked the kids to huddle together for a family portrait in their best clothes and provide me with the makings of a weekend jigsaw. They were quick to remind me that the family’s not complete without big sis Anika and little baby Matti, oh, and a few toddlers as well, but the search is still on for them 🙂
They are, from left to right, back row first, Yvette, Stella, Carmen, Wibke, (front row) Meike, Simon, Lars and Stine ❤
This is a hard one 🙂 Click on the link under the photo.
We’ve kept our clothes clean all day and mostly been very good. Can we have our chocolate bunnies now please ? Click below for their jigsaw before they’ve eaten them
Hello Hannah, lovely day for a walk in the park. Can I see your new baby ?
I need to keep them safe from the little ones while I’m out of the house walking the dog.
I like the way you think. I’ll just walk along with you for a while 🙂
