Lake day

We spent the whole day at the lake.  How fun can you get!  It was still warm enough to paddle, and nobody was there except us two homeschooling families – oh and a sleepy swan, but it stormed off in a huff shortly after we arrived.  The girls had a lovely time together while we mothers chatted and kept an eye on them from a distance.  They did all kinds of stuff, beachcombing, boat building…  One funny thing is that they both have noticeably big vocabularies, but not quite the same big vocabularies!  And they’re both a little young to be able to define words that they know how to use for other people.  At least that’s what Antonia gave me to understand just now when I was putting her to bed.  They don’t quite understand each other all the time!
