Here are a few pictures for our recent happenings. We picked veggies in the garden. We have been reading Stone Soup retold by Heather Forest and art by Susan Gaber (on YouTube see Stone Soup: Animated Stories for Kids). Today we cooked the stone soup and shared it. Sharing was the most important ingredient.
