Planting Flowers

Hunter has been off track now for a week and a half. On days that I work, he goes to school with me and works all day in the library. The librarians absolutely love him and he is a great help to them. He knows how to check in and out books, restock shelves, aid in putting up new bulletin boards, and has helped rearrange shelves and deep clean the library. He loves being there and begs to go in even on my days off.

So naturally, when I have Wednesdays and Thursdays off, you can imagine how bored he gets being the only kid home. Today seemed to drag for Hunt. We ran a few errands which bored him the whole time, and once we got home, he sat in front of the tv because he couldn't think of anything else to do.

I somehow talked him into planting flowers with me. We had ran to Shopko and bought some flowers with a good coupon I had, and now we need to get them into the ground. It took some coaxing, but he finally came out. His job was to dig the whole the flowers were to be planted in. He chose that job and ended up having some fun doing it. We had planted about 3-4 different flowers when he started talking about the dead people underneath. I thought he was asking if there were dead people buried here, but he quickly explained that every time we planted a flower, it was for the dead person they had just buried. Apparently we were planting a cemetery, Ha ha!

Oh, this kid has quite the imagination!
