"Our deep respect for the land and its harvest
is the legacy of generations of farmers
who put food on our tables, preserved our landscape,
and inspired us with a powerful work ethic." ~ James H. Douglas, Jr.
Besides yummy veggies, I also got some awesome socks made by this guy!

"Every great story seems to begin with a snake." ~ Nicolas Cage
In most stories, the snake is the villain, but in this one, it's her snuggle buddy, her security blanket, her "binky," her doudou. Piper has been in love with her snake since the day we brought her home. The snake belonged to Roxie, Piper's Auntie, who gave it to her on the night they met. It has been washed and mended over and over, yet unlike most of Piper's many other toys, her snake has always been loved and respected. They have a special bond!

Whenever I have the opportunity to walk over to Pewaukee Lake Elementary School, I revel in the cuteness -- the colorful artwork displayed in the hallways, the adorable outfits (especially in the winter when they struggle to don snow pants, boots, scarves, and mittens), the sound of squeaky voices and infectious giggles. Today I spotted this band of littles illustrating Robert Fulghum's theory that "all I really need to know I learned in Kindergarten":
“Share everything. Play fair. Don't hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don't take things that aren't yours. Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some. Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together. Be aware of wonder." ~ Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten
