We've been busy

Wow, the end of this week was quite busy. Thursday was Corpus Cristi day so, once again, Daniel had a day off from school. We went with Leah, Dylan, and Christy E. to the pool, and met up with some other JCS staff. Jeremiah had an absolute ball (and it wasn't so bad for us either ;) )! Pics of the "water baby" will come soon.
Friday I spent the day grocery shopping, made lunch for Jer and me, prepared for tutoring, tutored, and then spent time working on Daniel's father's day gift so it could be ordered on time (shhh...don't tell him), and decorations/favors for a mother's day outing tonight for the woman at the Arc (Dominican Mother's Day is this Sunday). In the evening we went to a Pig Roast/ Graduation party up at Escuela Caribe.
Today we've been spending time outside in the glorious hot sunshine gardening. We ordered a truck load of dirt (literally a truck-load) and planted tomatoes, beans, cilantro, dill, fennel, lettuce, various flowers, etc... We'll see what grows. I'm also hoping to plant some squash and transplant some mint and forget-me-knots.
So, as a result of all this, the blogging's been sparse and the dishes haven't been done. Although it may just have to do with the fact that the weather's gorgeous...

Our pile of dirt
The veggie garden (the chicken wire is to keep out the dog)

And did we mention that we ran out of cooking gas? This was the alternative...

And this is what Jeremiah did while we worked.

Yes he ate all of it (banana, whole-wheat/oat bread, and roasted pepper) and an extra half of a banana than what's shown. Of course, this was only lunch. For breakfast he had two pancakes and a quarter of a mango (only 1 pancake less than what daddy had). And he still nurses 6-7 times a day. We have a good eater!
