You Can’t Handle the Fun

Well, okay.  Maybe you can.

I got a little carried away at the Greenmarket today.  But, oh, the bountiful goodness!  It all looked so fabulous that I had to take a picture.  In fact, you can see M’s silly-banded wrist in the corner of the picture because I couldn’t get her to move any further from the food–she was hovering, waiting to take another apricot.


As I rinsed and put food away, the girls conducted side-by-side comparisons of grocery-store apricots, cherries, broccoli, and lettuce vs. the farmers’ market stuff.  The farmers’ market won resoundingly in all four categories.  In fact, the girls were so enthusiastic in their approval of the market lettuce that for a moment, I was deluded into thinking that they might evolve into children who choose to eat greens.  Alas, that fluttery little hope was crushed quickly.  When I suggested that they might eat some later, they looked appalled.  No, they didn’t want to actually eat any more.  It was just fun to do the contest.

Hoping things dry out a bit this week.  Here’s some of what’s happening. . .

All week, you can pick up supplies to make a Father’s Day craft at the William K. Sanford Library‘s Youth Services Desk.
