Antoinette Tends to her Garden (Photostory)
Sorry this story took so long to get back to. I've been working on a commissioned Thanksgiving dolly dinner, and I had to take an all day real estate course yesterday.
"Well girl, I better get going, or I will never make it to Jordan's" (Dominique)
"Alright. It was nice chatting with you. I'm going to get back to this vegetable garden." (Antoinette)
"I wish I had the time and the space to do a fresh garden." (Dominique)
"You could always do a little container garden. It doesn't take a lot of time to take care of those." (Antoinette)
"I am many things. A gardener is not one of them." (Dominique)
Dominique finally leaves and Antoinette turns her attention back to the kids and the garden.
"Mom! Can I ride my bike?" (Nikaya)
"Did you finish straightening up your room?" (Antoinette)
"Yes. All finished." (Nikaya)
"Kenaz, hurry and get in. I have to drive us to park so we can play with our friends." (Zahara)
After receiving permission to ride her bike, Nikaya heads out the yard.
"Zahara, don't turn that on while Kenaz is standing in the back." (Antoinette)
"Okay, but I can't get him to sit down." (Zahara)
Nikaya begins riding her bike up and down the street.
Just then, Tony emerges from the house.
"I thought you were working on the garden?" (Tony)
"Dominique stopped by, and we talked for awhile." (Antoinette)
"Oh. Well, I'm headed to the barbershop, then I'm going to stop by to see dad." (Tony)
"Will you be back in time for dinner?" (Antoinette)
"I plan to be. If something changes, I will give you a call." (Tony)
"You know your dad is welcome to come have dinner with us." (Antoinette)
"I'll see what he's doing." (Tony)
"Daddy, can I go with you?" (Zahara)
"Not today. Stay here and help your mother." (Tony)
"Daddy, daddy?" (Nikaya)
"There's something wrong with my bike." (Nikaya)
"Are you able to ride it?" (Tony)
"Yeah, but it doesn't feel right." (Nikaya)
"I'll take a look at it when I get back." (Tony)
"Mommy, can I help you?" (Zahara)
"I think that would be wonderful. There's nothing like playing in the dirt and not getting in trouble for it. Let me get the wheelbarrow, and we can get started." (Antoinette)
"What's that for?" (Zahara)
"We are going to put the excess dirt in here." (Antoinette)
Tony heads out.
"Beep, beep! Watch out dad." (Nikaya)
