Yesterday, Nathan decided to take the loppers and clear a path through the overgrown brush, down and around the Golden Delicious Apple tree. Lindsay was a big help, picking up the fallen branches and piling them in as neat a pile as possible off to the side. They did a great job! Now all we have to do is beat the Blue Jays to the apples, so we can fully appreciate the fruits of our children's labor.
Afterwards, Lindsay had a brilliant idea! She decided if I can't find her, then I won't be able to call her in for school. What better way to hide from Mom than to employ some natural camouflage!
This morning, there's no need to hide from Mom. My children are both lounging in front of the TV watching their weekly shows as they consume their weekend cereal of choice. Who knows what great adventures await them this afternoon?
