We did a lot of this:
|"We've been up since four - and now the sun's out! Let's GO!"|
"Why did I think we'd be able to sleep in while Dad was gone?"
"I'm with you, Cam ..."
You know Mom's comments are in black, right? Anyway ...
That was followed by supervising Mom while she gardened.
|"Doing great, Mom! Don't forget to water the new stuff!"|
"Mags! I thought we were playing Queen of the Stairs - come ON! I mean ... it's break time!"
More of this:
"Got him in my crosshairs!"
And more supervising. We were careful to stay hydrated, since it's still warm here.
|"Slurp, slurp ... hey, Maggie! Mom's got water in her coffee cup!"|
Yeah. And more of this:
|"Forward! Let's go!"|
"Come on, Mom!"
It was important for us to make sure Mom got enough exercise in. It's good for her.
|"Ready to tackle the garden, Mom?"|
"That northwest corner needs weeding, you know..."
|"Look! There's a lady with two dogs in front of us!"|
"I'll bet we could catch up with them!"
"Girls! This isn't a race! Girls!"
|"Really, Mom? 'Not a race'? Where do you come up with these things?"|
"We could have smoked 'em if you hadn't made us turn up Everett!"
And back to the garden:
|"We're here for you, Mom!"|
"Looks like some-squirrel's been digging in the Iris Garden!"
It was an exhausting 87-million days, as you can imagine! Frankly, I'm not sure how Mom would have handled everything without our help.
