"Beyond Curricula" Goes to CHEO

This week we went to a local nursery, Wade & Gatton. They are famous for their hosta plants (one of the largest, if not the largest, in the country). It's a great place to walk around and get ideas for gardening "tips and tricks". There are gardens all over the property where you can see most of their hosta varieties, bushes, trees etc. Below are pictures that we took while there, just click on them to enlarge the thumbnails.

Dad has been working very hard laying mulch in the perennial garden and some other key areas throughout the yard. There is a pic or two of that as well.

Today, we installed the AC units! We've got little window units for the two bedrooms, and a slightly larger one for the TV room upstairs. We were hoping to "hold off" on them until July, but we gave in . . . it's definitely Summer!

Tomorrow is CHEO, the state homeschool convention. Mom is giving her talk, Beyond Curricula, twice. Once on Friday (tomorrow) and once on Saturday. I'll let you all know how things go. I think we're just about ready. We've been going over the PowerPoint presentation and getting things packed up and ready. Off we go . . .
