Spy Garden Summer Begins!

Ready for Summer

Ready for Summer

Woo! Summer officially began in Spy Garden the first of June. I know “officially” it starts later this month, but we make up our own rules about seasons around here. The Spy started summer camp today…at Baby’s school! It is pretty awesome that they have camp for a small group of school-agers there. Today was his first day; most of the day was spent in the woods (“and they don’t make us stay on trails!”) so basically the Spy is in forest-school-camp-heaven! His class is going to wear tie-dye for “uniforms” so tonight we…

Spray bottles of tie-dye. Genius. No dipping, no hot water, no rubber bands. Spray, dye, throw in the dryer: done! Usually I do things (or at least WANT to do things) the hard, involved, messy way. In my dream-world, I would make the dye out of some things like tumeric or flowers freshly picked from the garden (or black walnuts!). Then dye some amazing, one of a kind designs on some homemade t-shirts (made from cotton grown in our garden obviously)…But for a Monday night, this was perhaps a more reasonable approach! And besides, I’m not growing cotton (this year! haha). In other uniform news…

    I’m FINALLY here! Did I miss anything? I am on a whirlwind tour around the world/internet in order to clear away my massively overstuffed RSS Feed Reader that had to take a back seat to real life (read a squillion pumpkins that needed processing STAT) and that took over. I have culled it mercilessly. You will be happy to know you didn’t make the cull ;). Can’t answer all of the back posts but will be a much more regular commenter now. See you soon!

      Oooo a squillion pumpkins…sounds wonderful! Glad you’re back! You missed more yoga poses with sculptures, a baseball game that involves a gnome (gnome run!) otherwise same old, same old (aka other wildly exciting things involving plants)!

        I reckon someone should pinch that gnome and send it around the world on holidays…it would give it enough time (and reward) to recover in between games…just sayin’ ;)
