Monday Mission: "What I Did This Summer"

Today's Mission titled "What I Did this Summer" had me remembering elementary school essay assignments. Curiously, I was transported back to 3rd grade...

What I Did this Summer
by The Flying Mum

This summer we did lots of things. It was fun. We flew on a plane. We went to Illinois. Then we drove to the Great Smokey Mountains. They were great but not very smokey ha ha. We went for a walk and saw some beautiful butterflies

and a strange bug.

We also saw a mushroom

and a frog or maybe it is a toad.

and some bear poo.

Later in the summer we drove to Canada for camping with some family. It was hot. It was very dusty. My favorite part was swimming in the lake. There was no showers. We were there for 4 nights. When we got home I took a shower.
This summer I planted some things for a vegetable garden.

We ate lettuce and turnips from this garden.

We also ate radishes.

When we were in the Great Smokey Mountains some deer ate the flowers off of the tomatoes and potatoes and raspberries. The tomatoes and potatoes and raspberries had to make new flowers. Now we have tomatoes and potatoes and there are some raspberries growing yum. We get to eat the ripe tomatoes and hoo boy are they good.

I think it was a pretty good summer. I like summer. School is good too.

Painted Maypole is also hosting a round of Monday Missions. This Monday was a horoscope theme, and hers was awesome! (I have yet to read the other entries, but will be doing so asap.)

HA HA HA!!! I can't believe I'm not the only one who takes pictures of bear poo. It was the first time I saw bear poo right next to our cabin in northern WI and I was scared and excited, so I took a picture.
Great photos! Thnx!
