in the Toothpick Garden

Happy Friday Friends!

Spring is HERE....I'm sure you've noticed:)    We have had  quite the adventuresome week.  (AKA the incredibly Looooong week that would NOT end) {{{grins}}}

We had a lovely "nature walk" up at East Lake Tohopekaliga.   Fortunately,  this is only blocks away  from our little kingdom. 

Yes,   My Goose and our friend Roo love the little prairie bonnets.

NO,  you can NOT see mine....HA!

We had some hot sunny fun taking in the wildlife, wildflowers, and "wild" people...LoL

And then we did a little gardening. Welllll, Goose did some gardening. I am very excited and have been watching daily for the first signs of life! I am  so proud of her for doing this all by herself.

I was QUITE surprised to see that the toothpicks sprouted FIRST!  I just hope there isn't an overcrowded toothpick/green pepper junGULL in my future{{{grin}}}

As I mentioned in my last post Homeschooling has been burrowing deep into the recesses of my mind lately. Thanks for all the great feedback Larri (Seams Inspired) and Donna (Comin' Home). You are both incredible Christian role models!! I am grateful to have Wise Women like you that I can blogSTALK!!  There are so many options when it comes to Homeschooling. I think the hardest part for beginners...like ME... is getting STARTED...LOL   It is very easy to get overwhelmed with all the "methods" and curriculum choices. There is so much info out in Blogsville on the subject.  As an UPDATE:  I am really intrigued by the Charlotte Mason/Ableside method. I'm studyN' up on it. ( in my SPARE time:) I think, at this point, that I will be using a lot of their philosophies in our "schoolin".
Proverbs 15:24 NCV
Wise people's lives get better and better. They avoid whatever could cause their death. 

 I'm praying for wisdom. How about you???
So that's it girls! My unBEEEElievably long week in a nutshell, er blog post{{{grin}}}

Happy Weekend!
