Mowed lawns and weed pulling

Berries. Lots and lots of berries.
Every kind of imaginative game you can think of.
Miss E in her fort on the deck with "tether baby"
Reading - there has been lots and lots of reading this summer. Including reading a lot out loud to Mr. T which is all kinds of awesome.
Playing in the water
Sitting on the new front porch before bed time
Miss E copying everything Ginger does.
Super Spider. This guy really deserves a post of his own. Every day we've been catching him fresh flies and moths to eat.
When I came home from work yesterday, Miss E was in the shed playing the guitar. Peter came up to me and said "Miss E has some skills on the guitar, she's just picking up the beat by ear." to which I replied "yeah, she pretty much has skills at anything she decides she wants to do". That girl is a ball of all kinds of talent and really the only thing that will ever stop her is her.
