Weekly Wrap Up–Learning With Grandma

What a wonderful, busy week…and only one more week of school left for the year!

Academically, the girls are reviewing and finishing up their math and language arts curriculums for the year.  Nothing new, just review this week.

The majority of the learning took place outside, in the gardens with “Mamaw”.   She’s teaching the girls about vegetable gardening and flowers.  You know, the things you learn by years of doing instead of years of reading about others doing.  The things that make your body tired and get your hands dirty.


The three musketeers planted potatoes, onions, carrots, cabbage, collard greens, lettuce, eggplant and strawberries this week.  (All of these are cool weather crops.)  So here is the week in photos, you can tell one of the children is more eager to do manual labor than the other.   Oh, and a disclaimer, the girls also took a lot of the photos…ahem.

Onion rows…


Potato planting…



Hoeing the rows….



Planting strawberries…



Remember last week, when I said we had to put the fence up to keep the dog out of the garden?  Yeah, well…is it just me, or is he sticking his tongue out at me?
