On Saturday, we actually had some free time. Mia did have ballet rehearsal in the morning, but after that was finished we popped over to the Home Depot. We decided that we were going to plant veggies. We have always wanted to do this, and it fit well with the books we are doing for Emi’s “homeschooling unit.”
So, we spent a pretty penny (not going to lie), and bought flowers, planters, soil, and veggies. The girls were really happy with their choices.
We spent a good hour outside planting things. The girls were scooping out everything on their own, so it was a lot messier and took longer than it should have, but the girls were having a great time which was the point.
After working outside a bit (Ten was doing some much neededyard work while we were planting our vegetables), we moved inside to create our stepping stones.
We were all worn out by 5:00 pm. Ten had been at the gym all morning and followed that with tons of outside work. Me and the girls had done rehearsal, a shopping trip, outdoor and indoor activities…so we were ready to kick back and relax.
We finished the day by watching “The Secret World of Arrietty.” I had surprisingly never seen this movie before. It is loosely based on “The Borrowers.” I honestly remember watching that movie as a kid, but I don’t remember a whole lot about it. We all loved this movie. Lots of questions left unanswered at the end of the movie, but really good. Also, fyi…we do watch Japanese movies in Japanese…dubbed movies drive me insane…and as three people in the house are Japanese speakers…it would be weird otherwise…of course, I totally use English subtitles 95% of the time.
Anyway, that was our day at home this weekend. Productive but mostly fun.
