I'm not trying to neglect the blog this summer, but there isn't a whole lot new to tell. The Apprentice is away most of the week, working. Mr. Fixit is home most of the time, working, Mama Squirrel is planning the fall term and anxiously watching our one remaining zucchini plant (it's been putting out nice big healthy-looking green leaves, finally, but doesn't have anything yet we can positively identify as a zucchini). The younger Squirrelings are just soaking up the summer. They've gone berry-picking. Crayons/Dollygirl has been playing with neighbourhood friends--the ones who haven't gone off to camp or a cottage somewhere. And Ponytails went to a concert in Toronto.
