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 High School (9th grade) and we will be using Montessori philosophy, some Montessori curriculum, but mostly we will be unschooling.
