Since we are camped out in Garrett & Gina's back almond orchard, we're living life with them! Which includes private school immersion. :) Today Gina was in charge of 'hot lunch', picking up 20-some pizzas at Winco. Oops! They had the wrong order date, so Gina, Caroline, Cora, & I watched them make & bake them lickety split.
|What a cart load!|
It was also Gina's turn to for 5th & 6th grade PE. Garrett & Shannon took care of that while we watched.

We then drove through Modesto to friends near Waterford, that have a fantastic game room of exotic mounted animals. The Africa room has several full body mounts... giraffe, rhinoceros, lions, & monkeys plus many shoulder mounts. There are 3 rooms with animals from hunts in South America, Australia, Africa, and Alaska.
Michael kindly took us on a quick overview drive of Frantz Nursery which has grown tremendously from 16 years ago when I used to houseclean there. The children weren't overly excited about a plant tour, but they sure enjoyed listening to Michael!
