More Kid Stuff and Tomatoes

While Loch is still in school for 3 more days (can you believe it?), they had their 1st grade assembly and awards today. His school has 10 1st grade classes, I will never get used to that! I come from a small town, we had 1 class for each grade! We are very proud of him, he got an award for citizenship, and he was the only 1st grader to have his art selected for a citywide art show (that we weren't told about so we didn't get to see it - bad mommy!). I stopped in to his art teacher's class on the way out and she told me it should be coming home with him the last day of school. That's kind of unnerving seeing Loch get an award for something I didn't even know about, I feel guilty even though it's not my fault!

The morning in pictures:


I didn't catch the first part of the award, but this is for the Art Show...

A few more tomatoes trickling in... it will be awhile before we are harvesting lots of these, but every one that comes in gets to be savored properly - the "calm before the storm"! The one on the right is not a proper representation of an Heirloom at a measly 2.8 oz, but it is a Paul Robeson that I was lucky to get as the plant is as good as gone at this point, I am sure you will see it featured on Garden Blogger's Death Day this month, LOL! The others are all doing well, with huge fruit that are showing no signs of ripening yet...


2 "Fourth of July" hybrids, 1 "Paul Robeson" heirloom

  1. Cute kids, nice tomatoes. I am longing for some big red ripe ones here in Massachusetts. (And 10 classes? YIKES!!)

  2. Oh, look at that little girl on the left. The way she's gazing at Loch, I think he has an admirer!

    Congratulations, Loch, you must be a really good artist!

  4. LOVE your new blog header photo!

    Really like seeing the recent pics of the boys. Could we see Loch's work of art that he did??

    Ripe tomatoes!!? Well, MY cherry tomatoes are starting to blossom. So there! (I am SO jealous of your ability to actually bring tomatoes to harvest.)

  6. You must be one proud mama. 10 1st grade classes? I went to a relatively small catholic school myself. The only thing we had a lot of were old mean nuns. I loved it though.

    I would kill or a fresh tomato right now.

  8. Thanks everyone! Melissa, nice blog title, we too are "chronic remodelers", ripping out all the walls of our house "just to see" what we could do with it LOL that was my idea of a blank slate so I could see the whole picture, thankfully hubby has a background in construction so he didn't freak out too badly! Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Angela! From the looks of your great harvests, you will be in the tomatoes in no time!
