Some more gardening

This time the kids planted manioc with daddy. We got loads of manioc just from one plant a few days ago and yesterday they decided to plant some more on the back yard. You can check out the manioc harvest here.

The kids were again really keen to help and honestly did a great job. Daddy is also very good in letting the kids help. I think he's got more patience in that sense than I do :)

I was so happy to see the kids engage in a longer creative play yesterday. It seems all they want to do nowadays is to watch TV and if that's not allowed they don't seem to be able to come up with anything to play with. I simply can't be there ALL the time telling them what to do and how to play. Yesterday they were busy carrying wood and building things. I allowed them to play with the wood but warned them that they'd have to take everything back to where it was once they were done. It worked out so well - no fights, no arguing, just nice imaginative playing for a good while. And a very happy mama :)

Miten tota maniokkia istutetaan? Niistä mukuloistako?
