On your mark, get set….SPIT!!!

For this morning’s Olympic competition, only the few and the proud were able to stand up to the grueling test of Watermelon Seed Spitting. The teams from USA, China, Greece, and Great Britain were all in attendance. The competition was fierce, but it was the US who ended up pulling ahead and winning the gold!

On Fridays in the garden, we also celebrate Herb Day! The kids get the chance to plant their own herb gardens, lend a helping hand in making BooBoo Salve (soothing ointment for cuts, scraps, burns, etc.), and design and mix herbal lemonades.

BOOBOO Salve-mixture of olive oil, beeswax, and various herbs

Up in the kitchen, we finished off the morning making Sticky Toffee Pudding and Cucumber Tea Sandwiches…YUM!!!
