Sean attended a summer camp this year. Not sure we will do it again, but that's another story for another post.
There was a bit of gardening and composting at camp, and Sean has loved gardening since he was really tiny. I think I have a picture of him with a watering can before he turned 2 years old.
Sean brought home four tiny plants from camp this summer, which we planted in our little garden. He didn't remember what they were, and I couldn't tell by looking at them. A couple of months ago we realized two of them were chard. I had never eaten chard so I had to do some research to see what to do with it.
It has been raining for days, some days constantly, and in a downpour. Sean mentioned the chard last night, and we decided if it wasn't raining today it would be a good day to harvest. Now for deciding how to eat it...
I am a work-at-home mom living in the Pacific Northwest, committed to providing the best education for my son. I love to learn and want that for him as well. We homeschooled for one year with Montessori method and materials, and I learned a lot about it. After a few years at a public Montessori school we are back home. It's Sean's first year of Middle School (7th grade) and we will be using Montessori philosophy, and a Montessori curriculum.
