A while back I said something in passing about having the boys weed the front flower beds. So Wednesday before last they asked if they could weed instead of starting school first thing. Since I was surfing the net I let them go do some weeding.
After a little bit one of the twins came in to show me a nut that they had found that was starting to sprout.
Then they found one that had a tap root and sapling. Pretty neat stuff. Weeding and a science lesson at the same time. Ahhh, it's just another joy of homeschooling.
