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!
