Making Jam, Story Walking, Visiting the Bookmobile...

Hello!  Just a quick note here again - I'm seriously hoping to get into the shower tonight, and don't want to jeopardize that by staying up too late on the computer.  We've had some long nights this week, and I won't be able to keep my eyes open too much longer here.
But I did want to share some of the stuff we've been up to, before these photos become hideously out of date!
So first up, for me, is the fact that I made jam this week.  Rose Petal and Rhubarb Jam, to be precise.  It took about six times longer than it should have (frequent stops are de rigeur around here) but I got it done, and it's totally delicious.  I had a little me moment this morning, while Griffin ate his cereal and Holly ate a wooden ring, to thoroughly enjoy my Cheddar and Chive Biscuit (from the Farmer's Market) slathered with butter and Rose Petal and Rhubarb Jam.  Yum!  Every day should start that way!

Also last week, we had the Grand Opening of the Story Walk.  It's a nice little addition to the park, all along the path from the road to the playground.  There are many posts, each with a page from the book "Juba This, Juba That" and a corresponding action.

Griffin loves doing it ("I'm big enough to do the Story Walk - I'm this big!" (hands reaching to touch the top of his head)) and had a head start, since it was up for a few days before the Grand Opening.

Also, the Family Matters picnic happened at Port George, and Jai was there with the Bookmobile.  Griffin was in heaven, seeing Daddy and the Bookmobile!

And Good Night!
