School is out in 3 days. My plan for mornings this summer is to get up (the kids are up between 5:45 and 6:15), grab something portable for the kids to eat for breakfast, and walk the dog to Dowling to water and weed before it gets too hot.

Today was a little bit of a practice run when the kids and I stopped at Dowling on the way home from school to water the tomatoes and basil.

We each grabbed two watering cans from the shed, filled them at the water barrels, and the kids watered the marigolds while I watered the food plants. It worked even better than I had hoped!
