The Walnut Acre Daily -A Picnic Lunch and a Turnip From the Garden

Walking With the King
"Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord." ~ Leviticus 19:18

Today's Quote
Colors are the smiles of nature. ~ Leigh Hunt

On Our Nature Walk
It looks like these berries that I've been watching are blackberries. It looks like it will be just a few more days until we can start picking these.

In the Garden

I pulled this turnip this morning when I was working in the garden. I'm thinking I should have left it there longer, it's not as big as it looked like it would be before I pulled it. The others in the garden are about half to two-thirds this size so it will be a little while before they're ready to harvest.

Other Outdoor Fun
It was absolutely beautiful outside today and we had a picnic lunch. 

While we were eating CJ looked up and realized Amanda's cat, Sheena, was sleeping on a branch over our heads. 

I'm not sure what CJ and Michael were playing this afternoon but they had the wagon loaded and CJ was trying to figure out a way to pull the bicycle along behind the wagon. Michael was just trying to make sure he got in the picture. 

We Are Learning 
The weather outside was beautiful and Michael is still extra active so we didn't do circle time or our half hour of school work this afternoon. Instead we spent extra time outside. In a couple days it's supposed to be really hot again and there will be plenty of time then to do these kinds of activities while we're trying to stay cool inside.

We Are Reading
Here are some of the books we enjoyed reading together today.
Hanging Out With Mom

Chaucer's First Winter

The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

In the Kitchen
For breakfast this morning we had this Breakfast Sausage Casserole. 
Michael helped me make Sausage Cheese Bread for our picnic lunch.
For dinner this evening I fixed baked chicken, buttered potatoes, Buttery Cooked Carrots,(with carrots from the garden) and we had the whole wheat bread I baked yesterday.

And that's a peek into our day today. Tomorrow afternoon Michael has an appointment with the pediatrician so we can decide what steps we need to take for him since he had a seizure Sunday. Then tomorrow evening Austin has youth group and I have choir practice. We also have more kids than usual tomorrow so it should be an interesting day.
