Write about: the translator.
Genevieve offered to work this morning alongside our bakery volunteer, so I actually had two helpers out there with me. It was a nice preview of what I'll get starting this Thursday (Maja is arriving in Vancouver from Denmark on Tuesday night, catching a bus to Osoyoos Wednesday morning... so I'm not expecting her to be ready to get out there until Thursday at the earliest).
We raked out a very large section of the garden and seeded some more carrots and beets. The potatoes will also be going into the other end of that section, so we'll need to get on that as soon as possible. We're a good two weeks behind on starting those.
The hope is for Genevieve and I to finish mulching the strawberries tomorrow morning, which will then free up a whole chunk of time to get back on top of things on the vegetable side of things. We'll see how that goes.
May I present to you the evolution of Max's communication skills:
To begin, let us go over what he actually said, starting around the 20 second mark of the video:
Now allow me to run that through my Daddy Translator Supreme 2014 Edition:
"I'm going over there, and I'm taking the balls in the truck."
He has been saying each of those three individual phrases/sound effects for quite some time now, but only recently has he been starting to put them together in order to really communicate something.
It's... all rather strange and fascinating. And amazing, obviously.
He'll be having proper conversations with us before we know it.
