1. Saying Good Morning to Bessie Dearest. Every few days I feel that I notice an improvement in her tameness. Who knew that watching John Lyon's horse training videos years ago could come in so handy?
2. While the parentals are on vacation, we are too, ie, I don't feel like homeschooling. So we are doing outdoor school, ie gardening. We have very long flower bed that is in dire need of improvement and we have a load of plants waiting to go in. This afternoon, we got the non-yellow jacket infested section completed. Tonight's mission? Take out the yellow jacket nest that Jacob unknowingly dug into this morning. Ouch. Poor guy.
