um... I think maybe you need to start wearing a hat when you are working out in the sun. Just a thought.Well, Bobby, what did you do in kindergarten today?
First, we had to walk the tobacco, and tear off some sticky suckers from some of the plants. Then we had to pull-up all the pokeweed plants that came up in our blackberry patch. Then we cut some white, see-through stuff from a giant roll—with real scissors, and stitched two big bags on a sewing machine. We even put name tags on them. After that, we walked the tobacco again, looking for bugs and stuff, then tied a white see-through bag onto the tippy top of one of the plants. That's where it makes flowers. We had to go back inside to get a basket, and then we...um...picked some okra...oh!...and a lot of tomatoes.
It sounds like you had a busy day.
Right before lunch, we cut 135 pills in half with a little pill cutter—one at a time. After lunch, we looked for crummy cucumbers on the vines, and threw them away. Then we hiked out to the mailbox, but there was just a bunch of advertisement stuff. We updated our tobacco grow spreadsheet, and then made a big pot of chicken gumbo, so the okra wouldn't be icky to eat. But cutting up the okra was icky anyway. And we diced celery into tiny pieces, and put a bunch of baby yellow tomatoes into the pot whole.
Wow! That was a busy day!
Later, we read about the chaos in Haiti, and the flooding in St. Louis, where Uncle Ronnie lives. And all by myself, I edited a picture of a big tobacco leaf for my book. Oh, and Mommy, the teacher said I'm supposed to be "retired"—but I don't know that word yet. Is that like tired?
Yes. Do you have any homework?
I'm supposed to write a few more pages in the book...
