Wise advice from a ninth grader... given after the fact. Yesterday, I decided to check out the garden and help pull some weeds around the tomato plants. I swear the kids were able to stand effortlessly on top of the mud while I just sunk every time I took a step. Almost left a shoe behind, too. By the end, I sort of learned how to jump from dry spot to dry spot. Sort of.
Later in the day, one of the SB graduates, Chai, decided she needed photos before heading home and that my camera would be used. So we had an impromptu photo shoot where it quickly became clear to everyone involved that I was not capable of keeping a straight face in pictures. I tried. I really did.
